Process analyzer technology can help analyze a product as it goes through processing, determining, among other things, chemical composition, boiling point, freezing point, viscosity, pressure, and color.
It compares the sample to a set calibration to see if the product is contaminated, as any contamination will change the features of the sample. Process analysis can help identify critical process parameters and critical quality attributes to ensure that the result is quality by design.
Process analysis will use different testing methods based on which parameters are being analyzed.
Real-time gas analysis enhances efficiency, safety, throughput, product quality, and ensures environmental compliance. Gas analysis can utilize various technologies such as tunable diode laser spectroscopy, zirconia oxygen analysis, and infrared gas analysis, stack gas analysis, and dust monitoring, process gas chromatography, continuous emissions monitoring systems (CEMS), hydrogen purity analysis and gas density systems. Selecting the correct technology is critical to measurement accuracy, reliability, and durability. Some of the most reputed gas analyzers used are;
