International lab reactor company launches new PAT -IR spectrometer

HEL offer their  HEL PAT-IR mid-infrared spectrometer. The PAT-IR is designed for on-line process measurement using fibre optic probes, which has an option for a built in 6 port multiplexer allowing multiple  samples/reactors to be monitored with our PolyBLOCK or AutoMATE systems.

Dr. Jasbir Singh, MD HEL Ltd commented "The system covers a wide range of wavelengths with unequaled resolution and low noise characteristics, making it ideal for tracking fast and slow reactions alike, in real time".

He continued "the data allows identification of side reactions and the tracking of transients for mechanistic kinetic models as well as control of quality".

Fiber optic probes
The combination of the ATR (attenuated total reflection) sampling techniques and the light guiding fiber optics enhances the use of infrared spectroscopy, enabling in situ measurements, which helps fully utilize the benefits of information rich mid IR spectroscopy. A wide range of probe adaptations, including the patented diamond ATR probe, can be attached to the unit for in situ analysis. The patented design combines a two reflection diamond ATR probe head with the excellent performance of MIR silver halide fibers.

Process and Laboratory ready
The PAT-IR is a process-ready FT-IR spectrometer that is ideal for real-time monitoring and analysis of chemical and biological reactions. When used on HEL reactor platforms, the spectral data are graphically displayed together with process information. This also allows process changes be made on the basis spectra, process measurements or a combination of the two enabling automated closed loop optimisation.

HEL Ltd in profile
HEL's motto is: better chemistry - faster.

HEL's products are designed to enable research chemists to achieve their goals faster, more accurately and more efficiently.

Operating internationally with offices in UK, India, China and the USA. HEL is a company that specialises in research and pre-pilot scale chemical reactors and systems. We provide both automated and manual tools for process R&D to clients in the pharmaceutical, fine chemical and petrochemical industries, as well as in academia.

Originally established in 1987 purely as a consultancy, the company has grown to include a complete team of chemists and chemical engineers, working from our fully equipped testing facility in the UK. Innovation and new product development through process screening are ingrained in HEL's culture, and our specialist software development team with now over 20 years' of automation and control experience, is continually improving the most powerful and chemist friendly software available.

Qualified employees, modern production procedures, and chemical process equipment and technologies, as well as quality control, are the basis for our outstanding products and services.
