The RAMANRXN2™ 1000 analyzer has been designed to provide the spectral performance of a laboratory FT-Raman instrument but with the capability for in situ reaction monitoring using fiber-coupled probes.
Since the introduction of FT-Raman instruments in the late 1980’s, they have been applied for laboratory analysis in a variety of industries including finished polymers, pharmaceuticals, and certain specialty chemicals. The majority of their applications have involved end-product testing and quality assurance. Attempts to move FT-Raman analysis outside the laboratory for process measurements have been largely met with failures due to inherent instrumentation and sampling issues. The RAMANRXN2™ 1000 Raman analyzer, however, uses dispersive technology in order to address these issues.
The RAMANRXN2™ 1000 Raman analyzer is built upon the already established technology of the RAMANRXN SYSTEMS™ suite of Raman analyzers, widely regarded as setting the standard for Raman analyzers for reliability, stability, applicability, and productivity. In order to meet the challenges of deep-red excitation Kaiser have developed deep-red optimized optics, gratings, probes and detector technology. The resulting RAMANRXN2™ 1000 analyzer allows certain applications that couldn’t be monitored in situ by Raman, to now be measured. These applications include early-phase “dirty” crystallizations, bio fuel manufacturing, food and beverages, and heavy hydrocarbons.
An option for the RAMANRXN2™ 1000 analyzer is an ergonomic trolley including built-in probe and optic storage, a routine-analysis sample compartment, fiber storage, and the analyzer control system. The trolley allows the user the flexibility to employ a single Raman analyzer in a variety of situations including as a transportable raw materials identification analyzer, a bench-top analyzer for methods development in the lab, reaction monitoring in the pilot plant, process control development in a manufacturing environment, or a dedicated quality control analyzer.
