The Process Guardian is a new Raman analyser from Tornado. In addition to superior measurement performance, this next generation HTVS-enabled analyser embodies all critical requirements for straightforward deployment into a process environment. Uncompromised measurements you can trust are now available from a ruggedized standalone platform.
Superior Analytical Performance
The Process Guardian’s analytical performance is turbocharged by Tornado’s patented High Throughput Virtual Slit (HTVS™) technology. With enhanced photon collection power, higher SNR can be achieved leading to lower limits of detection without compromising spectral resolution. High precision on both the X and Y axes makes even the toughest chemometric modelling tasks achievable.
The high-quality data delivered by the Process Guardian can provide process information related to qualitative or quantitative chemical characterization with unsurpassed detection limits and specificity. This technological advantage delivers enhanced process understanding, which in turn leads to improved and optimized process control.
The Process Guardian offers numerous benefits for established analytical practice and facilitates broader adoption of Raman methods for pharmaceutical, petrochemical, food, biotech, and other applications.
But what really sets Process Guardian apart is its powerful embedded processor. No external computer needs to be supplied, approved or regularly maintained by plant IT services. It’s a smart analyser that can monitor its own health providing remote clients with status and alarms. An optional multichannel (4 or 8 channel) fibre switch is supported and is controlled directly by the instrument. The Process Guardian also supports connection to Tornado’s OPIS 35 ATEX/IECEx certified laser accessory for inherently safe Raman measurements in hazardous zones.
