Extends the measurable range between the minimum detectable value of back-scattered light (no to low dispersed phase i.e. earlier cloud point detection vs traditional tools) to the largest amount of back-scattered light (highest dispersed phase concentration with the smallest particle sizes -- hence the most scattering surface area -- i.e. detecting attrition or size reduction at the highest solids loading and smallest sizes).
Blaze high contrast, high resolution, & high dynamic range in-process microscopy enables a next generation understanding of single & multiple dispersed phase particle systems at the highest solids, smallest particle sizes, and widest range of particle composition types.
Focused Beam Reflectance Measurement - The Next Generation: Image Derived Chord Length Distribution (ID-CLD) to track Particle Size & Count
Blaze Image Derived Chord Length Distributions (ID-CLD) provide data and trends familiar to thousands of process development experts but with substantially improved linearity, precision, accuracy and repeatability over changing dispersed phase properties (solids concentration/size/shape/surface/translucent-opacity). These improvements lead to better and faster process understanding and hence shorter development times and often better and more robust processes.
Blaze uses OPC to transfer statistics between the Blaze and Process Control Software. Real-time reactor & other PAT inputs (i.e. Tr, Dosing, pH, Raman,…) can be fed to the Blaze UI for real-time trend & microscopy compare as well as saving for future evaluation. Blaze stats can be sent to control platforms such as Perceptive Engineering, Systag FlexyPAT, & iControl for real-time control action &/or data logging.
The Blaze patented single optical path technology allows multiple analytical technologies to simultaneously utilize the same optical path. This creates both an enabling combination of measurement tools while reducing the cost of ownership through reduced capital costs, installation costs, maintenance costs, and utilization costs. Combined with other Blaze exclusive IP, Blaze probes provide best-in-class process analytical technology.
This capability allows the user to swap between:
A choice of probes with different Field of View/Resolution and/or
A choice of probes with different dimensions, i.e. 276mm vs 461mm.
This capability, much like switching microscope objectives, allows a single BlazePAT system to appropriately address a wider range of application at a greatly reduced cost over purchasing a second system.
Improves signal from suspended solids. Depending on the conditions, the Blaze can substantially increase the solids signal captured dynamically in process. This enables users to better identify small volumes and/or track small changes in polymorphs, solvates, hydrates, & particulate impurities; as well as better differentiate particle types in multiple component systems. Blaze Raman pairs with most spectrometers.
Blaze Optional Technology Additions in a Single Probe
Blaze Raman Spectroscopy and PG Polarization are both available for additional integration (with all of the technologies above) into the same single probe.
PG Polar is in real time & in process at the same time we are taking our standard dark field (gray scale) microscopy, HDR Turbidity, and both 532 and 785 nm excited Raman. PG Polar can greatly improve visualization as well provide transitional information never before available.
