With the launch of the NIR-Online X-Sential, BÜCHI Labortechnik AG introduces a new process sensor that takes advantage of more than 15 years of in-the-field experience with process NIR technology and applications. The X-Sential was developed and designed as a cost-effective, fit-for-purpose process sensor. By using diode array technology, the sensor spectrometer does not contain any moving parts, making it extremely fast and robust. The industry-proven design stands up to rough conditions like vibration, extreme temperatures, wind, dust, and humidity. The new system is certified to IP69/X9K for ingress protection and delivers state-of-the-art monitoring for basic parameters such as moisture, fat, and protein in manufacturing processes.
Like all BÜCHI NIR-Online process sensors, the newest member of the proven NIR product portfolio features the same superior robustness, combined Swiss and German quality, and ease of use. “No expert knowledge is needed to operate the X-Sential with its unique AutoCal functionality,” says Michael Eckert, Product Manager Technology, Development & Support for NIR-Online. “The X-Sential can be easily implemented into existing quality control routines. Consequently, there’s no need to invest in commercial calibration databases or extensive in-house calibration development. With our wide range of process adapters, the sensor can be perfectly integrated into our customers’ production lines.”
