Axiom Analytical, Inc. Announces a UV Fiber-Optic Transmission Probe that Provides Robust Performance for Demanding Process Analytical Applications
Press release date: November 8, 2011
The second key element of the FPT-850U design is the elimination of optical fibers within the probe (U.S. Patent 5,418,615). This insures excellent optical stability and long term reliability. The elimination of both internal optical fibers and elastomeric seals provides for reliable long term operation at temperatures as high as to 400ºC. FPT-850N Near-infrared Transmission Probes are widely used for on-line process analysis in the chemical, petroleum, and pharmaceutical industries as well as in process development and related PAT (Process Analytical Technology) applications.
