The sample is analysed by transmission measurements in inexpensive vials on the QIA1075 – Universal Vial Sampler. The Universal Vial Sampler has space for 5mm, 8mm and 12mm vials outer diameter.
The vial with the sample is placed in the heated vial holder before analysis. This ensures that the sample is analysed at the right temperature, representative sampling and that effects from temperature fluctuations are reduced. After analysis the vials are disposed off.
The FuelQuant B5 is supplied with a powerful software package consisting of InfraQuant Operator Software and Horizon QI spectroscopic software.
InfraQuant QC software is combining user friendliness with high level of data security. The Operator is guided through the steps of the analysis sequence, in most cases in native language.
This ensures that standard operating procedures are followed and that consistent results are obtained independent of operator skill level and experience.
Results of the analysis are presented with clear figures with integrated color codes. The color codes reflect the validity of the results measured against preset criteria.
Horizon QI spectroscopic software offers a series of powerful spectroscopic tools for the advanced user. Horizon QI is used to verify the performance of your system and for troubleshooting. The Horizon QI Advanced Instrument Health will tell you the status of your system with more than 50 values tagged every Second.
The advanced user can collect, view and manipulate spectra in Horizon QI for optimization and R&D purposes. The Horizon QI software can be extended with further functionalities through a series of add-on modules.
The FuelQuant B5 comes with an external workstation which eliminates the disadvantages of build-in Computers. Upgrading and replacement is easily performed on-site reducing the potential downtime of the equipment to a minimum.
With the external computer it is possible to connect a series of accessories like touch screens, label printer, barcode reader etc. offering the user maximum flexibility.
Low cost of ownership - Save on expensive maintenance contracts
The FuelQuant B5 has no scheduled maintenance. The light source has an expected lifetime of 10 years and the laser is solid state maintenance free. This will enable you to save the cost for Expensive maintenance contracts.
The FuelQuant B5 uses no chemicals and the vials used for the analysis are inexpensive. This will keep the cost per analysis very low.
