A new dimension in process monitoring

Main document

Metrohm has combined the best aspects of laboratory and online systems to create the 875 ProcessLab - a fully customized, automated atline system for process monitoring. While process-integrated online systems are used for high analysis frequencies, atline analysis systems are applied to long analysis cycles or wherever various parameters are to be measured at different measuring points. ProcessLab has a compact design that allows for close positioning to the actual process and thus yields faster and more reproducible results. The modular design of ProcessLab gives complete flexibility allowing the configuration of application-specific systems. This flexibility also makes it possible to extend or reconfigure a system in view of future analytical testing needs. With its ability to be configured for a wide scope of applications in various industries, ProcessLab is a perfect system for the production floor, laboratory or anywhere in between. The electronic components are hermetically separated from the wet-part modules and protected against dust and splashing liquids in harsh plant environments. The reliable industrial PC and PLC-driven I/O Controller make for extensive control and communication possibilities using standard communication protocols. Result outputs can be provided as a direct link to the process control center via analog/digital signals or can be delivered via local network to a plant engineer or laboratory manager. Effective monitoring of real-time results can help tighten specifications, detect problems early and avoid wasting money on out-of-spec products. ProcessLab is easy to use, robust and provides fast, reliable results for safe process control.
