NIR technology

High performance NIR technology

XDS™ uses the full-visible and near-infrared scanning range. Near Infrared analysis is a spectroscopic technique, which makes use of the naturally occurring electromagnetic spectrum. The NIR region is the area of the spectrum defined by wavelengths as between 700nm and 2500nm.

Fast and versatile

Liquid analysis or material identification testing is performed either in the laboratory or at-line on samples contained in their original vials, bags or bottles A temperature-controlled sample chamber provides the stable sample environment essential for precise chemical analysis measurements.

Monitoring vegetable oils

A particular application for the XDS™ Rapid Liquid Analyser is the routine analysis of vegetable oils in the refinery industry and olive oil segregation. Determination of FFA, moisture, Phosphorous, IV, K232, K270, PV in less than a minute allows full and rapid control of the vegetable oil refinery process or olive oil segregation.
