Fiber Optic ATR Probes for Harsh Environment

FlexiSpec® probes include new type of Attenuated Total Reflection (ATR) probes designed for harsh application conditions.
HT-ATR immersion IR-fiber probes can be used for process-spectroscopy in Near & Mid IR range to monitor reactions in-line in a broad temperature range from -100° to +250°C. HT-ATR immersion IR-fiber probes can withstand pressures up to 200Bar and used with FTIR or any other IR-spectrometers and spectral sensors in automated process control with process-interfaces.

  • High throughput in selected parts of near and mid-infrared-spectra
  • ATR tip shaped for immersion in the liquid flow without dead zone
  • Robust for industrial applications in harsh environment up to 250°C
  • Resistant to high pressure
  • Compatible with all spectrometers and automated process-interfaces
  • Remote reaction monitoring in-line in the temperature range -100/+250°C
  • PAT applications in lab, pilot plant or industries with process-interfaces for automated process control
  • Polymerization process control
  • In-situ IR-spectroscopy for PAT in chemical, petrochemical, atomic, biopharmaceutical and food industry
