Metrohm is pleased to offer turnkey solutions for the quality control of commodities such as diesel, gasoline, jet fuel, polyols, palm oil, and wood pulp by Near-Infrared Spectroscopy (NIRS). Based on dedicated spectral databases and a pre-calibration models, these solutions enable manufacturers to reduce the cost of their daily routine analysis while improving the quality of their products.
Key quality parameters for the above mentioned commodities are still often determined by time consuming physical or wet chemical methods involving complex sample preparation.
NIRS, on the other hand, is a non-destructive analytical technology that requires neither chemicals nor sample preparation, it can even be used by non-chemists, and provides results in less than a minute. Furthermore, multiple chemical and physical parameters can be determined simultaneously with a single measurement. The combined benefits of this technology make NIRS the ideal solution for a large number of daily QA/QC measurements or continuous process analysis. Metrohm offers pre-calibrations for the following products: gasoline, diesel, jet fuel, polyols, palm oil, and wood pulp.
