Axiom Analytical, Inc. Announces a new Probe for Food and Polymer Process Analysis using Raman Spectroscopy
TUSTIN, Calif., – Axiom Analytical, Inc. has announced the availability of its RFP-435 probe for the Raman analysis of materials such as polymers and food products during extrusion. The new probe can be fitted to most extruders employing industry standard ½ - 20 UNF fittings. No extruder modifications are required. The extreme robustness of the RFP-435 probe is assured by the use of a sapphire window, stainless steel construction and Axiom’s proprietary welded window seal design. The probe is compatible with the extremely high temperatures and pressures often encountered during polymer extrusion.
The RFP-435 is the latest member of the company’s RFP Series of Raman probes. All of the probes in this series employ interchangeable objective and filter assemblies, allowing them to be easily adapted to a wide variety sample types and operating conditions. Individual models are tailored for both small scale laboratory applications and full scale on-line process deployment. All of the probes can be coupled to diverse Raman analyzers using standard fiber-optic cables.
