Product Introduction

FlexiSpec® product line – is a cluster of innovative Fiber Optic Probes and Fiber Probe Couplers designed for in-line analytical analysis in broad spectral range – from UV to Mid-IR.

FlexiSpec® family of Immersion Fiber Probes includes ATR, Transmission, Transflection, Fluorescence and Diffuse Reflection probes - all compatible with any FT-MIR, FT-NIR or dispersion spectrometer, process-photometer, IR-LED or QCL spectral sensor to use in-line for PAT-applications.

FlexiSpec® Fiber Probe Couplers (FPC) couple any FTIR - spectrometer with various fiber optic probes and upgrade it to eliminate sampling and to run reaction monitoring in-line.Our fiber probe couplers provides high coupling efficiency for ATR-Absorption, Transmission or Reflection process-spectroscopy in a broad spectral range, from UV to Mid-Infrared – to use fiber coupled FTIR spectrometer not only with LN-cooled MCT-detectors, but with uncooled detectors as well.

FlexiSpec® probes design is cleanable for many processes where probe optics can be contaminated by media. Industrial probes are compatible with process-interfaces SensoGate-FOS and Ceramat-FOS with approved fittings to secure their semi or full automated use in complete process control systems. They can be retracted, cleaned and calibrated during chemical process – to enable remote process-control in any liquid, gas or solid mixtures under harsh environmental conditions. Combined with FTIR or UV/Vis spectrophotometers, our fiber probes facilitate qualitative and quantitative product analysis and enable the determination of specific chemical and physical properties.

We offer two categories of FlexiSpec® product portfolio: standard and customized. The standard products consist of preconfigured probes and probe couplers, which can be implemented in the laboratory, pilot plants or in production. The customized products allow users to custom configure fiber probes and couplers based on their unique process requirements. Please browse our website to find additional information regarding spectroscopy fiber products.

Fiber probes for process spectroscopy are based on coherent bundle design which provides the best coupling efficiency with spectrometers, light emitters (LED, lasers, lamps, etc.) and media of spectral analysis to investigate its reflectance, fluorescence or absorption spectra.
