PANalytical has announced the launch of its new Epsilon Xflow system.
The online solution is made for the continuous analysis of the elemental composition of any liquid, providing real-time feedback from a production process.
The Epsilon Xflow can be incorporated in many different process streams in a wide range of industries such as the production of petrochemicals, polymers or food. Predefined conditions can be closely monitored, enabling an immediate reaction to any change, thus way avoiding waste and unnecessary expenses.
Together with PANalytical specialists, customers will determine the positions in their processes, which can profit most from Epsilon Xflow. For example, in the petrochemical industry, the system can analyse sulfur in fuel even at concentrations lower than 10 mg/kg at many stages of the production process. At the same time, low concentrations of vanadium and nickel, which may be harmful to the refinement process, can be determined. Industries will also be able to closely check their wastewater for hazardous compounds.
The analytical core of Epsilon Xflow employs energy dispersive X-ray fluorescence (EDXRF) technology, which is robust and non destructive with low detection limits and highly accurate and reproducible analysis results.
Mark Pals, PANalytical’s Manager of the Priority Lane group, said: “Real-time monitoring of a production process is an essential tool for avoiding waste and achieving more cost-effectiveness. With Epsilon Xflow we now offer this possibility for the online analysis of most liquid products […] Together with the customer we will analyse the production process and find the most profitable locations for on-line monitoring.”
