Single Probe - Multiple PAT
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.
User Interchangeable Probes
Blaze has Three lines of tools: the Lab Series, the Pilot-Production Series, and the ATEX/Explosion Proof Pilot-Production Series. Within each series the probes are detachable & interchangeable (the probes are NOT interchangeable between series). The Lab tools are made to be light and easy to swap frequently. The Pilot-Production tools are made to be more robust, have additional cooling and water proofing, and are built for less frequent probe swaps. ATEX and other Explosion proof environments have special requirements.
Blaze Particle Focused Raman
Blaze Raman Improves signal from dispersed phase solids. Depending on the conditions, the Blaze can substantially increase the solids (vs Liquid) signal captured dynamically in process. This enables users to better identify small volumes and/or track small changes in suspended particles such as polymorphs, solvates, hydrates, & particulate impurities; as well as better differentiate particle types in multiple component systems. A complement to Kaiser, Tornado, Wasatch and other Raman spectroscopy: The Blaze attaches directly to the Raman spectrometer, sending the Raman shifted light directly to the spectrometer.
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 dispersed phase concentration, smallest particle sizes, and widest range of particle composition types.
Open Protocol Communication (OPC-UA)
Blaze uses OPC and other methods to transfer statistics between the Blaze UI, other PAT software i.e. Raman, and Process Control Software. Real-time reactor & other PAT inputs (i.e. Tr, Dosing, pH, Raman derived statistics,…) can be transferred to the Blaze UI for real-time comparisons with Microscopy, derived statistic trends and saved altogether for post process evaluation.
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.
ID-CLD Particle Size & Count
Focused Beam Reflectance Measurement - The Next Generation: ID-CLD (Image Analysis Derived Chord Length Distribution) precision & repeatability over the widest range of process conditions speeds process understanding. Blaze CLD provides enabling measurement from fine to course & from low to high dispersed phase concentrations without misleading artifacts of past technologies. The Blaze advanced optical design also extends the dynamic range providing enabling information in single & multi-component systems; from blending, to oiling out, to dissolution. Simultaneous microscopy removes the guesswork & vastly improves ease of use.
High Dynamic Range Turbidity
Blaze HDR Turbidity is pioneering a new dynamic range measuring from low to extremely high dispersed phase concentrations. From nano-scale nucleation onset, to tracking milling from micron to nano scale at high solids, to differentiating adjuvants at process concentrations or measuring optical transitions in the liquid and/or solid phase, HDR TU takes PAT to a new level operating in translucent to black solutions.
