HARDWARE SOLUTIONS

SPECTROPHOTOMETER SYSTEM, COLOR PROBE (CP), REFLECTION POLYMER MELT PROBE (RPMP), and TRANSMISSION POLYMER MELT PROBE (TPMP).

Our spectrophotometers and fiber optic technology was made for demanding production environments. It opens wide possibilities for continuous observation of extrusion and other processes without blind spots. The overall technology is easy to control and use. It's based on inline UV-Vis spectroscopy. In some applications, the usage of two probes to monitor two production lines at the same time is possible with one system. Our technology is fitted to the existing manufacturing facilities, boosting their productivity and quality.

COLVISTEC's SOFTWARE

Our technology can be customized for a wide variety of processes, offering data output in various formats, and excellent integration with the hardware solutions already in place. Scroll down to read the full technical details of each software package we offer and leverage it to your advantage.

EquiColorRTM

EquiColorRTM is a system that captures transmitted or reflected light with one or two probes augmented with light sources, determines the spectral transmission or reflection curves, deduces the human-perceivable color associated with such spectra, and is able to check its deviation from a configurable expected color. 

ReTA

ReTA helps to gather a growing batch of log files with RTM data, extract concentration data from the spectrometric data, discover the RTM segments and their textual descriptions, align the beginnings, synchronize the proceedings, filter out noise, combine selected subsets for averaging, estimate asymptotic behavior, convert the resulting curve into a viable approximation of a probability distribution, display the result, and derive further statistics from that, including estimates of percentile times.

SpecViewer

SpecViewer is a tool designed to display and navigate the sequences of spectra in an intuitive way, presenting both overview and details graphically, and assisting analysis by offering common transformations that emphasize relations between spectra. The human-visible color associated with each spectrum is directly visualized by presenting the spectral curve itself in that color.

CloudVis

EquiColorRTM can condense the measured spectra to coordinate triples relevant to human vision, typically L*/a*/b*. Each such triple can be thought of as representing a point in a 3D color space. Given a sequence of such measurements, one obtains a point cloud in that color space. Suppose that another point cloud has been obtained in an earlier sequence of measurements. It would be interesting to quantify how close the two point clouds are in a statistical sense. This is the function of CloudVis.

PHARMACEUTICALS

We provide serious quality control to factories that work in the pharmaceutical industry. Our company detects all common problems that might occur during the manufacturing process such as monitoring of crystallization, API stability, yellowing, and other forms of quality degradation, residence time, API’s shear and temperature exposure, etc. Below you can find more details on the technical side of the defined problems, including data that shows you how and when exactly you can discover those issues with our hardware & software solutions installed to your plant. With our extensive portfolio of precise instruments, you can be sure to receive constant and accurate measurements that ensure your compliance with government regulations and product specifications.

PLASTICS & POLYMERS

Our inline UV-Vis spectrometry-based technology continuously detects all the factors that influence your manufacturing process' accuracy & efficiency. You can automatically analyze all your production output directly in melt, liquids, powder, and paste without any preparation and onerous sampling, which can significantly increase the overall productivity and flexibility of your technology plant.

CHEMICALS

The inline UV-VIs spectrophotometry-based technology allows you to continuously measure the manufactured substance every 10 seconds or less directly in the process without sampling, without interrupting the production line, without delays. This, in turn, maximizes the efficiency of the manufacturing process and minimizes costs at the same time.
