The Pilot™ series of Raman probes has been developed for optimal performance with all the Raman analyzers in the RAMANRXN SYSTEMS™ suite. The RAMANRXN SYSTEMS™ suite of analyzers is ideal for analyzing, monitoring, and controlling chemical processes. The combination of the Pilot™ line of Raman probes and the RAMANRXN3™ analyzer for classified locations yields both a powerful Process Analytical Chemistry (PAC) and Process Analytical Technology (PAT) analyzer for in situ analysis or control, from the safety or optimization laboratory to the manufacturing reactor.

Pilot™-E probes can be used with glass-lined reactors commonly found in pharmaceutical manufacturing facilities, without reactor modification. Pilot™-E probes can be supplied certified to the the European ATEX safety requirements as part of a RAMANRXN3™process solution. The modular design of the Pilot™ series of probes allows the sampling point to be customized for each customer's reactor, thus removing the need for sampling slip stream. This in turn may reduce maintenance cost, eliminate a potential failure mechanism, improve process safety, and reduce initial installation cost.

All Pilot™ probes utilize a single fiber for excitation and another for collection. For laboratory equipment, this provides a robust interface and sampling versatility. For process equipment, single fibers allow reduced cost for long runs of fiber as compared to multi-fiber collection designs. Single collection fibers also permit simultaneous multi-channel operation on a single analyzer. Standard telecommunication fiber diameters (<100 microns) are used to increase mechanical stability. This results in fewer broken fibers, increased safety, and lower maintenance costs.
