The NIRQuest spectrometer is a fiber optic near-infrared spectrometer that is easily adaptable for cost-effective on-line process control measurements from 900-2500 nm. A diverse range of applications includes moisture detection in grains and meats, materials characterization of semiconductor components, bacterial detection in food and beverage production, and chemical analysis of pharmaceuticals. The unit represents the next generation of optical sensing technologies that is moving from the lab to the process line. Flexible detectors, light sources, and sampling optics result in instruments more easily implemented into the process stream. The modular approach of systems such as NIRQuest makes multiple-point sampling and redundant sensing easily accessible for on-line applications, and versatile system setups enable far less costly adaptation to changing process line needs.
