Quality control of industrial manufacturing: instant, multi-parameter method can reduce costs up to 90%
08/04/2020

Free webinar demonstrates the benefits of applied near-infrared spectroscopy

NIRS for quality control of polymers
Many different standards are put in place to support industrial manufacturers with their QC process. However, time to result and the costs associated with most of the standardized methods can be quite excessive. In a free webinar, Dr. Nicolas Rühl and Andreas Agerer from Metrohm AG present an alternative method: Near-infrared spectroscopy (NIRS). Based on real application examples, they demonstrate how NIRS can reduce running QC cost in the manufacturing process of polymers, petrochemicals, and other products by 90%.

The webinar will take place on 5 May 2020 at 5 pm CEST.

Near-infrared spectroscopy (NIRS) offers significant advantages over conventional approaches. Analysis is non-destructive, simple to use, and requires little or no sample preparation. In addition, time to result is short – multiple parameters such as moisture, viscosity and hydroxyl value can be determined and displayed in less than one minute. NIRS compares particularly favorably with wet chemistry methods, which are by their very nature more demanding and expensive to apply. Participants in this webinar will learn:

  • What NIRS is and how it works
  • What the key benefits and limitations of this technology are
  • How to implement this technology as per ASTM E1665
  • How to apply NIRS to determine moisture, hydroxyl value, viscosity, and many more QC parameters
