Integrated Raman spectroscopy analyzers provide highly accurate in situ measurements while providing 24/7 connectivity to critical data.

Kaiser Optical Systems, Inc., an Endress+Hauser company, releases its embedded Kaiser Raman Rxn analyzer suite, featuring intuitive Raman RunTime embedded control software.

Researchers and manufacturers in the chemical, polymer, pharmaceutical, biopharmaceutical and food and beverage industries require highly accurate chemical composition measurements. In the past, Raman spectrometers required the use of separate stand-alone computers hosting the software needed to convert raw measurements into usable data. Because of installation and system limitations, measurements often took place offline in a controlled laboratory setting, limiting accuracy and lab-to-process scalability.

In contrast, the Kaiser Raman embedded analyzer collects in situ process measurements, enabling real-time process monitoring, optimization and control. With this 24/7 automation, companies can maintain a continuous pulse on the safety, quality and efficiency of their operations—whether in laboratory or manufacturing settings. Kaiser Raman Rxn analyzers perform self-monitoring and self-diagnostics to ensure the validity of each measurement and to enable seamless model transferability and equipment scalability from lab-to-process.

The latest Raman Rxn portfolio, comprised of the Raman Rxn2 and Rxn4 base analyzer models, integrates analyzer and control software in a fixed purpose device with built-in intelligence. Kaiser Raman technology also communicates with external systems over networks using standard automation protocols, providing companies with reliable chemical composition measurement with secure 24/7 connectivity. By doing so, the analyzers enable increased data security, system integration and automated communication.

To ease maintenance, Raman Rxn2 and Rxn4 analyzers perform self-calibration, utilizing spectral correction methods in applications when periodic system calibration is not required. Additionally, they provide flexible installation options including benchtop, mobile wheeled cart and rack-mounted, or in stainless-steel enclosures for lab, pilot plant or dedicated manufacturing applications. The rugged analyzers and applicable sampling probes are also certified for installation in hazardous areas.
