Do you know when to use a flow cell instead of an insertion probe?
Our Guided Wave Multi-Purpose Flow Cells (MPFC) are used whenever direct insertion probes are not appropriate and the process material does not require the added assurance of the High Safety Flow Cell. One of the primary advantages of near infrared process spectroscopy is the utilization of intrinsically safe fiber optic cables to remotely locate the probe. While direct insertion probes eliminate sample loops and sample systems and their associated problems, sometimes it is necessary to install sample loops for safety, service, and/or sample conditioning reasons. Our MPFC is a convenient, compact, rugged sample interface that is easy to install and even easier to service. The cell’s sapphire windows can be cleaned by simply removing a clean-out plug for direct access to the windows without disconnecting process lines or fiber optic cables.
