AcuPro - Infrared Process Analyzer
The AcuPro is an industrial strength analyzer for continuous measurement of flammable and some combustible vapors, from 0% to 100% of the Lower Flammable Limit (LFL/LEL).
- Accurate: Multiple Wavelengths detect broad range of solvents & gases without recalibration
- Reliable: Response factors with minimum variation
- Fast: Superior response time, less than 4 Seconds
- No Add-ons: Accessories, moving parts, or mirrors are not necessary
- Fully Heated: All sample-wetted parts are heated, including the detector assembly, the optical cell, & sample probe
- Industrial Design: Immune to poisoning and requires no oxygen for operation
The AcuPro is an industrial strength analyzer with a complete sampling system, heated optical cell, and integrated controller for continuous measurement of flammable, and some combustible vapors, from 0% to 100% of the Lower Flammable Limit (%LFL, or LEL). It is suitable for monitoring a single solvent in a wide variety of processes. And it may be used for mixtures of solvents with a reduced level of accuracy in processes where the normal solvent concentrations are below 25%LFL.
The AcuPro Infrared Analyzer from Control Instruments Corporation is an industrial strength analyzer with a complete sampling system, heated optical cell, and integrated controller for continuous measurement of flammable and some combustible vapors. It can accurately monitor a given range of solvents within a narrow band to optimize both the safety and the economy of running a process; it can also be used for mixtures of solvents in processes where normal solvent concentrations arc below 25% LFL.
This analyzer was built on a robust and well-proven industrial analyzer platform. Its unique sample delivery system is heated, mirrorlcss. and free of moving parts which means it is specifically designed to handle a wide variety of process monitoring environments. In addition, the multiple wavelength infrared detector allows the AcuPro to operate with linearity and with common response factors while minimizing the need to continually recalibrate for different solvents. All this is accomplished without compromising safety, and in accordance with NFPA guidelines, not to mention with low maintenance and minimal downtime.
Built For Your Process
Unlike other IR point detectors the AcuPro was specifically designed for the process environment. Its sample delivery system is heated to 60°C and uses compressed air to draw in the sample with an aspirator, which provides a controlled sample for accurate
readings. Ihis method is simple; it is a complete detection system with no need for add-ons or accessories and to top it off. contains no moving parts, so it requires little maintenance. It is also immune to poisoning and requires no oxygen for operation.
Low Maintenance Features Enhance Accuracy
The AcuPro not only withstands the rigors of the industrial process environment, hut performs accurately under them as well. Its mirrorlcss design reduces the effects of contamination on the optical cell and eliminates surfaces that fog. become dirt)', and need to focus. All sample-welted parts arc heated, including the detector assembly, the optical cell, and sample probe, which prevent errors from process temperature changes and condensation of water vapor. In addition, the air aspirated sample draw system eliminates the need for failure-prone pumps. All of these features create an environment where accurate readings can be obtained and ultimately reduce maintenance and downtime.
Superior Response Time in the Process Environment
The AcuPro has a fast response time; the entire system is less than four seconds, due to its advanced signal processing and proprietary detector technology. The assembly mounts directly onto the process ductwork, as close as possible to the sample pickup point, which allows the aspirator to draw the sample directly into the cell, accelerating response time.
