WE DEVELOP ACCURATE, COST-EFFECTIVE SOLUTIONS FOR MEASURING INLINE CONCENTRATION USING OPTICAL ABSORBANCE IN PLACE OF FAR MORE EXPENSIVE SCANNING TYPE ANALYZERS.
Kemtrak’s DCP007 absorbance photometer platform provides unparalleled configuration flexibility when applied to specific online concentration measurements. The DCP007 can be customized to suit a wide range of wavelengths, ranging from ultraviolet to near infrared, to measure the concentration of mixed liquids or liquids with fully dissolved solids in real time.
Whether you are measuring the amount of water in alcohol, monitoring solvent recovery, tracking separation efficiency, or controlling fractionation and collection using a UV, our knowledgeable experts can design and configure a concentration monitor or colorimeter suitable to your needs. Scale is no obstacle! We can put together systems to suit extremely small, experimental laboratory scale measurements all the way up to full production scale.

NIR ABSORBANCE IS IDEAL FOR MEASURING WATER CONTENT IN A FLOWING MIXTURE.
NIR absorbance photometers measure how much light is being absorbed at a specific near-infrared (NIR) wavelength by a specific material in a mixed solution. This absorbance is used to determine the concentration level of that material in the solution. NIR absorbance photometers are most commonly used for measuring concentrations of water in organic solvents such as ethanol, both in trace amounts and in bulk.
The Kemtrak DCP007-NIR absorbance photometer is simple to use and designed to detect and report either trace or bulk (%) water content in flows such as alcohol, ethanol, methanol, gasoline, and sugar solutions.
"If you don’t remember, we purchased an Kemtrak analyzer to measure water in acetone back in 2018. It’s been a bulletproof instrument for us. We’re now looking at implementing a similar meter to another process that is removing ethanol from soybean oil and must be within a certain moisture spec."

FOR BIOTECH SEPARATION APPLICATIONS, MEASUREMENT SOLUTIONS USING THE DCP007-UV ARE PERFECTLY SUITED FOR CHROMATOGRAPHY PEAK DETECTION AND FILTRATION BREAKTHROUGH.
UV photometers are used to measure the amount of light being absorbed by materials in solution at specific wavelengths. UV absorbance photometers are of particular use in biotechnological processes, where they are used to detect the presence of expressed protein molecules during separation and filtration.
For such applications, the DCP007-UV analyzer, an advanced dual-wavelength photometer designed to accurately measure absorbance in the UV range, is an ideal fit. Optical fibers which transmit UV through the flowing sample allow bulky electrical components to be omitted from the inline cell, reducing size, increasing reliability and making them suitable for hazardous and ordinary areas alike. Solid state light sources (rather than the hot, mercury vapor arc lamps commonly used) provide drift free, pinpoint wavelength precision at the wavelength of interest (ie. 280nm) to increase specificity of measurement without inherent signal noise. The sensitive absorbance measurement system measures linearly to a depth of 4.5A to allow concentration calculation of high density proteins in real time. WIth dual UV wavelength capability, the DCP007-UV is truly an excellent and cost-effective solution for measuring flow stream UV absorbance and concentration.
