UK Technology and Innovation
In 2013, Keit became a spin off company at the European Space Agency Business Incubation Centre UK (ESA BIC) managed by the UK’s Science and Technology Facilities Council (STFC) on the Harwell Campus at the Rutherford Appleton Laboratory (RAL) in Oxfordshire, England.
Improved monitoring and control of production processes
With commercially viable applications on Earth, Keit was launched on the global marketplace with an analytical instrument that could provide process analysis of fluids in industrial settings – such as with biofuel companies wanting to optimise their feedstock pre-treatment processing or to monitor a fermentation process in real time; chemical, pulp & paper and edible oil refining companies needing a new type of instruments sturdy enough to be used right in the production plant for real-time insight rather than waiting for off-line sample analysis.
The advantage of in situ process analytical technology (PAT) remains the ability to capture the reaction analysis as it happens in real time – alerting production managers of potential irregularities for faster decision making and better resource management.
IRmadillo - a robust in situ FTIR enables process monitoring with valuable industrial applications
Keit’s IRmadillo analyser is ideal for use in manufacturing environments due to its rugged design and certification for use in hazardous environments.
