Hellma Optical Immersion Probe

With the development of fiber-optical systems, spectrophotometric analysis is made possible directly at site. Continuous measurements can be made in situ without sampling, allowing for better control of ongoing processes.

Fiber-optic immersion probes are highly recommended to be implemented as part of the process analytical technology. Process engineers can monitor, understand and optimize chemical reactions which would subsequently reduce production costs, improve product quality and most importantly bring better return of company’s investments – maintaining responsibility to the environment and without compromising operator’s safety.

Hellma is able to offer optical immersion probes to measure:

  • Transmission – general liquid samples
  • Transflection – liquid samples in smaller reaction vessels
  • ATR – for highly absorbing liquid samples
  • Diffused reflection – for measurement of granules, powders or any surfaces
  • Fluorescence – liquid fluorescence measurements

The optical immersion probes are configured with Hellma’s revolutionary online configurator at www.mypatprobe.com for different applications. The probes can be 'built' modularly from choosing the different: probe material, optical material, sealing, process connections, operating temperature, pressure, fiber-optic cable length etc.

About Hellma

Hellma is the world leader in manufacturing of optical components made of glass and quartz for scientific and medical analysis. Founded in 1922, its high-quality precision solutions provide the basis for achieving reliable measurement results in production, quality assurance and research. Hellma today is the favored partner for manufacturers and end users around the world.

Besides manufacturing cells, a new line of products was added to Hellma’s portfolio at the beginning of the 1990’s. New materials and processing techniques led to the development of fibre-optic systems. Here are some significant advantages of these systems: Measurements can be made in situ thereby making time-consuming sample withdrawals and examinations unnecessary. Even hazardous substances can be measured with optical probes without risks. Hellma recognized the potential of such systems early on and made them into a strategic new department with its own research, development and manufacture departments.
