Axiom Analytical has launched the LFV-532 spectroscopic transmission cell designed for use with FTIR (mid-infrared) and FT NIR (near-infrared) spectrometers.
The cells can be mounted in the spectrometer sample compartment for laboratory applications or external to the instrument and optically coupled to it by means of the Axiot optical transfer system for spectroscopic process control applications.
The optical pathlength of the LFV-532 can, in principle, be set in the field.
However, in most cases, it is precisely set and locked down at Axiom's facility.
The standard pathlength range is from 0.5 to 5mm.
In addition to its wide pathlength range, the LFV-532 features an unrestricted flow path, high transmission, and robust construction.
It is compatible with pressures to 50 bar and temperatures to 250C.
The LFV-532 was initially designed for the analysis of petroleum products.
However, Axiom expects that it will also be used in a variety of chemical and pharmaceutical process analytical technology (PAT) applications.
