The new Aspectrics BQA 1000 is designed to measure multiple points throughout the biodiesel production process, improving operations and maximizing yields. Providing quick and reliable analyses, the Aspectrics BQA 1000 delivers results in seconds compared with other chromatographic based instruments which can take up to an hour. The integrated sampling interface simplifies analyses for at-line operation. In addition, the new graphical interface provides ease of operation and navigation, with real-time results displayed on the screen. Consequently, the analyzer is easy-to-use, training costs are reduced and there is no need for sample preparation.
The Aspectrics BQA 1000 analyzer features a number of precalibrated applications to expedite set up and on-going analyses. In addition, new calibrations can be added to the analyzer to meet future testing requirements. Users are able to create their own calibrations or they can have Aspectrics Professional Services group create these custom process calibrations for a small development fee. This new Aspectrics turnkey solution enables users to analyze incoming raw materials as well as finished products for contaminates such as water percentage, methanol concentration, total glycerine, bound glycerine and Free Fatty Acids (FFA). The BQA 1000 is a rugged at-line analyzer specifically designed for the harsh environment of the biodiesel production plant. As a result, the analyzer is easy to clean, service and operate.
