The PTRam is a compact rack-mountable Raman analyzer designed for product and process development and used in analytical labs and pilot plant settings. Equipped with a 785-nm laser and fiber optic probe, the PTRam offers the benefit of high throughput Raman applicable to most samples.
- High-performance, precise, rugged, and reliable spectrometer
- Long-lasting, rock-solid laser stability for consistent results
- Self-monitoring to ensure the validity of each measurement for 24/7 real-time monitoring
- Auto Raman shift calibration for high reproducibility and stable, accurate instrument calibration, enhancing x-axis precision making model transfer easy
- USP <858> and new EP 2.2.48 compliance verified through system performance tests
- Single channel fiber-optically coupled sample probe with user-replaceable shaft, customizable for your measurement conditions
Easy, out-of-the box operation
The PTRam is a compact, sensitive, and robust Raman spectrometer that can be placed on the bench or in a rack-mount enclosure. Just connect the fiber optic probe, plug it in and start your measurements, easily moving it to the process you are developing. With the PTRam you can increase your process understanding and decrease development time with real-time process monitoring.
In addition, the PTRam is a stable system, with high repeatability and reproducibility. It includes internal monitoring of system temperature and Raman shift, ensuring precise measurements throughout your analysis.
Flexible sampling accessories
Fiber-optic sampling makes it easy to take your measurement to your sample, and measure through the transparent vessel wall.
The interchangeable fiber-optic probe shaft expands the capabilities of the PTRam with shafts operable in diverse environments. We also offer custom sampling interfaces suited to your unique needs.
Avoid unforeseen plant shutdowns with a reliable industrial process controller
Regular control of process parameters is critical to maintain product and process specifications and to achieve optimal product quality and consistency in any industry. By providing data in «real-time» to the industrial control system (e.g. DCS or PLC), downtimes are reduced, and costly company assets are safeguarded.
The 2060 Human Interface developed by Metrohm Process Analytics helps you to achieve that. Thanks to the variety of process communication protocols built-in with the 2060 HI (e.g., Modbus or Discrete I/O), process data can be communicated in «real-time» to any industrial control system or directly to external devices and is accessible 24/7.

- Sample preconditioning
Metrohm Process Analytics can engineer and supply virtually any “unit operation” for sample preconditioning and can provide a complete working solution for most industrial processes.
Besides the chemical analysis, sample preparation, preconditioning and location of the analyzer are deciding factors for the success of online and atline analysis. We can provide a full solution for almost any application, an analyzer in combination with sample preparation or even a complete turnkey package with a shelter, piping, wiring, and interfacing. This allows for a seamless startup and integration of the analyzer on-site.

The PTRam operates with Vision software, delivering a familiar user-experience with full spectroscopic data acquisition and analysis used with the Metrohm NIR spectroscopy process analyzers.
Vision is a comprehensive software that includes:
- Spectral data acquisition
- Qualitative and quantitative model development
- Real-time routine analysis for multi-component process monitoring
- Interface to control system (communication protocol added option)
- 21CFR Part 11- compliant version available
- System testing in accordance with USP and EP
When more advanced control is needed for the sampling (valves, pumps, sensors), Vision is used in combination with our IMPACT Software. The Intelligent Metrohm Process Analytics Control Technology Sotware “IMPACT” is Metrohm Process Analytics proprietary software used across the 2060 platform. IMPACT software is a complete solution offering a wide range of possibilities for process monitoring and automation. It facilitates the acquisition of analytical data from Metrohm process analyzers, displays and transfers results to any Distributed Control System or Programmable Logic Controller (DCS, PLC), seamlessly connects to external systems (e.g., sensors), and smoothly executes advanced programs.
