ANALECT Diamond 20
Process Analyzer

Benchtop, Rugged At-Line FTIR/FT-NIR Process Lab Analyzer

Our ANALECT® Diamond 20™ FTIR/FT-NIR process lab analyzer is designed for operation in rugged at-line environments as well as the laboratory bench. The ANALECT Diamond 20 FTIR/FT-NIR process lab analyzer system is typically used for calibration and applications development in support of our ANALECT Series of on-line continuous stream and batch process analyzers.  The rugged Transept™ Interferometer is the core optical technology shared in all ANALECT FTIR and FT-NIR analyzers have a wide array of MIR and NIR sampling and detector options.

The ANALECT Diamond 20 FTIR/FT-NIR process lab analyzer provides rapid, accurate and stable real-time monitoring of physical properties and chemical composition of liquids and solids all from one instrument.  Unique to the Diamond MX system, the entire beam is switched from channel to channel, enhancing energy throughput and channel-to-channel precision.   It incorporates the New DCM 600 Data Collect Module for improved signal-to-noise across entire frequency range up to a12X Performance Enhancement Factor.
