Process Analyzer: Process Analytics for Real-Time Analysis
Process analyzer technology can help analyze a product as it goes through processing, determining, among other things, chemical composition, boiling point, freezing point, viscosity, pressure, and color. It compares the sample to a set calibration to see if the product is contaminated, as any contamination will change the features of the sample.
Process analysis can help identify critical process parameters (CPPs) and critical quality attributes (CQAs) to ensure that the result is quality by design (QbD). Process analysis will use different testing methods based on which parameters are being analyzed.
Process analysis allows industries, such as petrochemical refineries, chemical plants, and pharmaceuticals to determine and ensure that their products are free from impurities.
Range of Instrumentation
Aside from the various types of process analyzer, typical formats available include:
- At-Line Process Analyzers
- In-Line Process Analyzers
- On-Line Process Analyzers
Considerations for purchasing a process analyzer
To determine which process analyzer is best suited for your needs, you should look at what exactly you want analyzed, one test at a time or several, and how fast you want the process analysis to be done.
