METTLER TOLEDO is pleased to announce the launch of its new FlowIRTM High Pressure (HP) Sensors for use with FlowIR. FlowIR is a small, dedicated Fourier Transform Infrared Spectroscopy (FTIR) instrument that offers real-time flow chemistry monitoring nearly anywhere within a continuous reactor setup. The addition of durable HP Sensors expand the use of flow chemistry by allowing users to gain the enhanced control of critical process parameters provided by FlowIR in high-pressure experiments. Benefits include faster experiment optimization, easier lab-to-plant scaling, reduced costs, and shorter time-to-market.
Interchangeable FlowIR HP Sensors, available in both DiComp and SiComp models, allow chemists working with high pressure experiments to quickly and easily swap sensor types to meet the needs of the current application. The new models can be trusted under pressures up to 50bar (725psi) and temperatures up to 120°C.
FlowIR HP Sensors cover the full spectral region with swappable diamond and silicon sensors. Their insensitivity to bubbles makes them ideal for continuous hydrogenations, and the inclusion of a temperature variable flow head maintains reaction integrity.
No extra equipment or setup is required to use the new sensors. Users simply substitute the high-pressure version for the standard FlowIR sensor, gaining the same performance, optical window, chemical compatibility, and flow characteristics they enjoy with the standard sensor.
