FTIR Analyzer System 

Portable FTIR/FT-NIR Spectroscopy Solution

Our ANALECT® RovIR™ FTIR Analyzer System is designed to be transportable for real-time dynamic monitoring of pilot scale reaction chemistries and continuous process streams. Its portability avoids costly permanent installations. With a sealed NEMA 4 enclosure and vortex cooling, the RovIR analyzer can be installed in general purpose and hazardous areas. The ANALECT RovIR FTIR Analyzer System’s versatility demonstrated by its range of applications allows measurements at multiple probes tap locations, and batch reaction development utilizing just one analyzer.  

  • Utilizes process proven ANALECT® Diamond 20™ Transept™ optical head.
  • Interchangeable sampling options to meet a wide range of operating conditions:
    – Choice of Diamond, ZnSe, and Silicon Probes
    – Flow-through ATR and transmission accessories
    – High throughput light pipes and fiber-optic configurations
  • Full chemometric modeling capability including SpectraQuant™, Eigenvector PLS Toolbox®, Eigenvector Solo®, Camo Unscrambler, Matlab®, Infometrix Pirouette® and Grams PLSiQ.

The ANALECT RovIR FTIR Analyzer System is primarily used in the oil and gas industry for subsea exploration and production. Specifically, it is used for the real-time analysis of hydrocarbons and other compounds in subsea production fluids, allowing operators to monitor the composition of fluids in real-time and optimize production processes. It is also used in the environmental monitoring and remediation industries for the analysis of soil and water samples, as well as in the food and beverage industry for quality control and product development.


Here are some specific applications where the ANALECT RovIR FTIR Analyzer System can be used:

  • Oil and gas exploration and production: Used to monitor the chemical composition of fluids in real-time during subsea exploration and production operations. This allows operators to optimize production processes and ensure the quality of the fluids being produced.
  • Environmental monitoring and remediation: Used to analyze soil and water samples for pollutants and contaminants. This information is used to assess the environmental impact of industrial activities and to design remediation strategies.
  • Food and beverage: Used for quality control and product development in the food and beverage industry. It can be used to analyze the chemical composition of raw materials, intermediate products, and finished products.
  • Pharmaceutical: Used to analyze the chemical composition of drugs and drug delivery systems. It is particularly useful for analyzing the structure of proteins and other macromolecules.
  • Chemical manufacturing: Used to monitor chemical reactions in real-time, allowing for process optimization and quality control.
  • Petrochemical: Used to analyze the chemical composition of crude oil, refined petroleum products, and other petrochemicals.
  • Agriculture and food safety: Used to analyze the chemical composition of agricultural products, including crops, animal feed, and fertilizer. It can also be used for food safety testing, such as detecting the presence of contaminants in food products.
  • Polymers and plastics: Used to analyze the chemical composition of polymers and plastics, which is important for quality control and product development.
