NEW Process Sensor NIR-Online X-Sential from BUCHI


BUCHI introduces a new process sensor, NIR-Online X-Sential that takes advantage of more than 15 years of in-the-field experience with process NIR technology and applications. The X-Sential™ was designed and developed as a cost-effective, fit-for-purpose process sensor. By using diode array technology, the sensor spectrometer does not contain any moving parts, making it extremely robust and fast. The industry-proven design stands up to tough conditions like vibration, extreme temperatures, dust, wind, and humidity. The new system is certified to IP69/X9K for ingress protection and delivers state-of-the-art monitoring for basic parameters such as fat, protein and moisture in manufacturing processes.

As all BUCHI NIR-Online process sensors, the newest product of the proven NIR product portfolio features the same superior robustness, combined Swiss and German quality, and ease of use. The robust, compact instrument is the result of extensive process expertise. The X-Sential™ sensor’s solid aluminum, nickel-coated housing provides a dust and water jet-protected sensor enclosure (IP69/X9K). Equipped with a temperature-stabilized spectrometer, it easily handles a broad range of ambient and product temperatures. 

Because of its attractive price point, the average payback period is less than one year. For customers, whose applications do not require a premium spectrometer, the X-Sential™ sensor’s fit-for-purpose design delivers the best and most cost-effective choice. Basic quality parameters for raw materials and end products can be analyzed in large quantities and allow for real-time process corrections. This reduces out-of-spec production and rework.
