This liquid analyzer is now high-temperature certified

| By Mary Page Bailey and Gerald Ondrey

This company has received TEX, IECEx, and UKEx certifications for its IRmadillo process analyzer (photo) for use in high-temperature liquid processes up to 220°C (428°F). These Ex certifications rate an analytical instrument as safe for use in hazardous environments, including potentially explosive atmospheres. This is a requirement for industries such as chemicals and petrochemicals, where the manufacturing processes frequently involve highly volatile and flammable components. The inline IRmadillo instrument has been designed to provide continuous, real-time analysis of liquid processes over a wider range of analyte temperatures in potentially explosive and hazardous atmospheres. — Keit Ltd., Didcot, Oxfordshire, U.K.
