Ocean Optics Introduces Handheld Raman Spectrometer

Compact IDRaman unit is ideal for authentication and counterfeit detection

Ocean Optics has released the IDRaman mini handheld Raman spectrometer, a small, powerful instrument with exceptional performance for sample authentication and counterfeit detection, identification and verification. The palm-sized IDRaman mini is rugged and dependable, delivering fast, accurate Raman analyses ranging from chemical and explosive agent detection in the field to quality assurance and quality control sampling routines in the laboratory.

Ocean Optics IDRaman Handheld Raman Spectrometer

Ocean Optics IDRaman Handheld Raman Spectrometer

The IDRaman mini overcomes many of the limitations of current handheld Raman instruments – especially size, sample measurement and power supply needs. At just 9.1 x 7.1 x 3.8cm and weighing only 330g, the IDRaman mini is not much larger than the typical mobile phone. To ensure simple and dependable operation during long field missions or manufacturing shifts where recharging is impossible, the IDRaman mini runs on two easily-replaced AA batteries.

The small size of the IDRaman mini does not limit its sample measurement performance. The unique Raster Orbital Scanning (ROS) mode scans a tightly focused beam over a wide sample area, dramatically improving the quality of the Raman measurement. ROS has benefits for liquid and solid samples, in particular solid samples that are inhomogeneous and irregularly shaped. Also, ROS is a dramatic improvement over stationary beam systems. The low average power needed eliminates sample damage and the possible ignition of explosive samples. In ROS mode, most compounds can be identified in less than nine seconds.

Featuring a bright 7.1cm resistive touch screen display, the IDRaman mini is easy to operate in bright sunlight and while wearing restrictive personal protection equipment. The straightforward, graphical interface is easy to navigate and allows operators of all skill levels to quickly acquire data. Sampling can be accomplished using either small vials or with a stand-off accessory for powders, residues, and solid samples.

The IDRaman mini helps make the power of Raman analysis more accessible, improving efficiency and saving on measurement costs.

Pressure management specialist Elfab has tested its Opti-Gard™ range of rupture discs to over one million life cycles. The new service life, over four times longer than previously achieved within the industry, is a significant improvement.

Elfab has tested its Opti-Gard range of rupture discs to over one million life cycles

Elfab has tested its Opti-Gard range of rupture discs to over one million life cycles

Two years ago Opti-Gard™ became the first rupture disc to be protected by a three-year warranty. Since its launch in 2004, the range has proved so robust and reliable in operation that Elfab offers a three-year warranty as standard on Opti-Gard™ discs supplied after 1st January 2011.

Opti-Gard™’s improved service life and three-year warranty now allow customers to more precisely calculate how long their discs will last in service and to better plan their maintenance schedules following product installation.

Opti-Gard™’s three per cent performance tolerance has allowed the optimisation of process pressures for many of Elfab’s customers. Apart from lowering re-supply costs, this has reduced disc inventories by up to 65 per cent.

The Opti-Gard™ system comprises a reverse-acting rupture disc, a single-design holder with multi-flange compatibility and a non-invasive, ATEX-approved burst detector, Flo-Tel™+. Featuring an industry-leading tolerance of only three per cent across a wide range of burst pressures and a 95 per cent operating ratio, Opti-Gard™ offers the highest performance characteristics available for liquid, gas or vapour applications.

New Indi-GASS sample conditioning module from Perma Pure

Providing more accurate process control and environmental monitoring

Combustion and process gas samples are typically wet, dirty, and hot, while analysers need samples to be dry, clean, and cool.  Designed specifically to meet the needs of the India market, the new GM-1024 Indi-GASS Sample Conditioning Module from Perma Pure produces an ideal dry, clean, and cool sample by continuously removing water and particulates from the sample stream, without altering the concentrations of typical analyte gases (including CO, CO2, HCl, NOX, O2, SO2, and VOC).

New Indi-GASS sample conditioning module from Perma Pure

New Indi-GASS sample conditioning module from Perma Pure

The Indi-GASS brings maximum performance in a compact module to systems integrators and OEM manufacturers of gas analysis systems.  Inputs to the system are the gas sample, compressed air, and electrical power and the output is a dry, clean, and cool sample ready for analysis.  Electronics and controls have been kept to a minimum to provide the necessary functionality at an affordable price point.

The device uses patented Nafion® membrane technology to remove water in the vapour phase, allowing users to achieve far lower dew points while quantitatively preserving analyte levels.  Drying is a continuous, self-regenerating process and no routine maintenance is required.  By contrast, chiller/condensers remove moisture from the sample stream by condensing it into a liquid, a technique that results in the loss of water-soluble analytes like SO2 and HCl.  This loss ultimately results in less accurate analyser measurements, a problem that is eliminated by the use of the Indi-GASS.

The Indi-GASS can be configured to condition sample streams with flow rates up to 5 litres per minute and water content up to 40 percent.  The integrated filter removes particulates, while the Nafion® dryer reduces the sample dew point to as low as -15 °C.  This happens without the loss of key analytes, allowing the user to make more accurate measurements than ever before.

The Indi-GASS and Nafion® dryers are manufactured exclusively by Perma Pure LLC, a Halma company.  For further information, please visit our web-site at www.permapure.com or contact Mahadev Hatti at +91 99300 29944 or mhatti@permapure.com .
