Blaze Advanced Chord Length (A-CLD) is not impacted by flow speed (particle velocity), changes in flow speed, or particle direction like other tools. Blaze captures images at 10 to 20ns, essentially “stopping” the flow. Blaze Advanced CLD is measured on the static 14 bit image.
In addition to removing substantial flow speed artifacts that con-volute data from older technologies, Blaze also reduces multiple other optical artifacts and substantially reduces the impact of changing solids concentration.
What particle system behavior changes particle velocity? Particle velocity changes with changes in particle size, size distribution, particle shape, particle to particle attractive forces; solids loading; solution viscosity (ie. temperature or the change from a saturated to a primarily saturated solution) and more.
Other artifacts reduced with the Blaze include the impact of changing optical properties. What can change particle system optical properties? ie particle opacity changes; different solvent mixtures; saturated to de-saturated systems; and more.
Blaze A-CLD combined with microscopy and turbidity leads to a understanding of process change. This combination provides a method you can reliably use to track change in particle size, shape & count.
In addition, the advanced Blaze A-CLD algorithm enhances resolution to change on both the fine and course end of the distribution.
Blaze High Dynamic Range Turbidity
HDR Turbidity provides a new level of differentiation. ppm to the highest dispersed phase loading, nano to micron, clear to maximum solids, black to white slurries & translucent to opaque optical transitions.
Blaze HDR Turbidity is pioneering a new capability in PAT. It can measure visibly imperceptible change at extremely low dispersed phase concentration and of extremely small nanometer particles as well as track change of micron size particles from very low to high solids dense phase particle systems (i.e. 40% solids). From visually black to white systems can be measured.

Blaze Particle Focused Raman
Blaze PF-Raman at 532 nm and 785 nm excitation are a complement to Tornado, Wasatch, Kaiser an other spectroscopy systems. Blaze PF-Raman can dramatically increases the Raman signal captured from dispersed phase particles (system dependent). Having enhanced signal off of the dispersed particle system enables users to find and track polymorphs, solvates, hydrates, as well as differentiate multiple component systems to an enabling degree that was not previously available in-process. These enhancements can also make it easier for occasional users to track change of concern.
Blaze I PFR vs. Ball Brobe:
Same API slurry, baseline-corrected; unsmoothed spectra expanded in fingerprint region
Blaze I PFR clearly exhibits a peak profile with an emphasis on solid phase vs. solution phase.

Blaze OPC UA based Importer and Exporter in Real Time
Importer: Reactor & other PAT inputs i.e. Tr, Dose, pH…imported in real-time to the Blaze UI for trending and saving…..Systag, EasyMax & others.
Exporter: Any of the 12 User defined and selected statistics from the Blaze UI can be acquired by comparable OPC UA devices such as Systag and SynTQ for process control and logging.
Blaze Analytics OPC direct to Systag ePAT for control.
Systag monitored functions, dosing to mixing speed, OPC back to Blaze to trend & evaluate along with all Blaze Analytics and Microscopy.
Bi-Directional OPC as per industry 4.0 supported
