Oil & Gas




Rugged FTIR for real-time analysis of Petro-chemicals and their products in the Oil & Gas industries. Chemical Analysis of Water in glycol, aromatics (benzene, toluene and xylene), mono and poly glycerides, alcohols (methanol, ethanol, glycerol), esters, fatty acid

Petro-chemical production and refinery facilities are characteristic complexes exposed to harsh outdoor environments creating significant challenges for real-time process monitoring with standard FTIR analytical instrumentation. Because it is vibration resistant, Keit enables use of a rugged FTIR spectrometer directly at the point of production. Keit unleashes the power of real-time FTIR for characterisation and identification analysis in crude oils, biodiesels, gasolines, petrochemicals, plastics and polymers and suitable for harsh environmental use (indoor or outdoor) over a wide range of ambient temperatures (-15° C to +40° C).
