FLuids Online Recognition Identification and Determination Analyser

FLORIDA 400 is an online X-ray fluorescence device for the elemental analysis of slurries or suspensions without sampling. It can be mounted directly on pipes and analyzes continuously the elemental composition (Z>12) of the material. In many cases the measurement can be performed through PE or PP pipes. However, different window solutions are available if the measurement has to be performed on steel pipes.

The device is used as a tool for process control. It offers immediate information (24/7) about the process without time consuming sampling and analysis in the laboratory. However, it does not replace the laboratory but serves as a process tool for feed forward or feed back control.
The device is equipped with a rugged X-ray tube and a energy dispersive detector in a stainless steel box. The information acquired with the sensor is processed with the software suite MONACO by an industrial PC which can be linked to the control system by standard interfaces.
