Pixact delivers online measurement technology for the real-time analysis of industrial process suspensions

The measurement data generated by the Pixact technology enables a new level of process control and optimization.

Mounted directly on process lines, reactors or tanks, our technology captures detailed measurement data in real process conditions.

This leads to improvements, increasing the yield and capacity of the process and minimizing quality variations in the final product.

ASSCT Annual Meeting

28 June 2019

We attended the 49th annual joint meeting of the American Society of Sugar Cane Technologists in Point Clear, Alabama, June 26-28. We presented a paper on the online diagnostics of sugar crystallization with a novel portable non-intrusive instrument and had a stand in the exhibition area!

 
 

APPLICATIONS

Pixact provides online measurement solutions for industrial particle, droplet and bubble analysis. Our measurement systems are developed for the demanding conditions of industrial processes, involving dark and dense suspensions, and high flow rates.

The measurements are typically conducted in real process conditions: in pipelines, reactors, tanks and other process equipment. Our measurement systems can also be equipped with sampling and dilution units.

Particle-laden flows are common in many branches of the process industry. Whether the particles are impurities in the raw material or the outcome of the synthesis in the process, their online analysis plays a vital role in the control and optimization of processes.

Droplets are present in various liquid-liquid systems such as emulsions in mass-transfer and mixing processes. The control of droplet size distribution is crucial for optimal process performance. Droplet size distribution is also an essential parameter in sprays used for coating and the application of additives.

In the crystallization process, the efficiency and yield of the process are determined by the crystal-forming characteristics of the substance that is to be separated from the suspension. The final size and morphology of the crystals are important for the recovery process, as narrow size distribution supports efficient filtration.

SERVICES

In addition to delivering complete measurement solutions, we support our customers in the introduction of new measurement technology into their processes from the evaluation phase to the mill-scale roll-out.

Our commitment is to build partnerships with our customers.

INSTALLATION & START-UP

To guarantee a fast and efficient start-up and take-over of the Pixact measurement system, we provide comprehensive installation, start-up and commissioning services.

DEVELOPMENT SERVICES

We provide development services for customers that require custom measurement solutions. Depending on the customer's needs, the hardware, software (user interface) and analysis modules can all be tailored to meet specific requirements.

MEASUREMENT SERVICES & EQUIPMENT RENTAL

Our measurement services are intended for pre-studies and short measurement campaigns either at the customer's facilities or in the Pixact lab. The measurements are performed by Pixact engineers and the results are reported to the customer.

Equipment rental is suitable for longer measurement campaigns carried out at the customer's facilities. The service includes the installation and start-up of the rental equipment.

AFTER SALES SERVICES

To promote the continuous operation of Pixact measurement systems, we offer several types of after sales services. Depending on the level of the services, the service package may include on-demand remote connection to the measurement system for support and troubleshooting, 24/7 remote monitoring of the system operation, regular service visits with replacement of critical system components, and fast delivery of critical spare parts. 

 

PRODUCTS

Our measurement systems are built following a modular concept. The Pixact measurement systems consist of a measurement head – a Pixscope probe or a Pixcell flow-through cuvette – and a Pixstation main unit or a laptop computer running the Pixact measurement software. Application specific analysis modules can be combined with any type of measurement head.

In addition to the standard configurations, we provide several optional features for our measurement systems:

  • Automation interfaces

  • Portable assembly

  • Washing systems for the optical windows of the measurement head

  • Automatic sample dilution units

The Pixcell flow-through cuvette can be installed on process lines and dedicated sampling lines.

The Pixscope probe can be installed on reactors, vessels and tanks.

A local display can be included in the Pixstation main unit.
