Chemical manufacturing is an extremely diverse market, with each site custom tailored to the product being manufactured. Despite the countless manufacturing processes that exist today, one of the most common factors in all processes is the need to control the manufacturing process from start to finish.
CEM has spent the last 40 years creating technologies that allow for streamlined sample preparation and analysis for the chemical industry. Our instruments enable manufacturers to actively control critical parameters such as loss-on-drying, loss-on-ignition, impurity analysis and more.
Microwave + Infrared Moisture & Solids Analyzer
Directly measure volatiles or total solids with unmatched speed and safety.The SMART™ 6 uses the proprietary new dual-frequency drying technology to heat samples. This breakthrough technology allows the system to analyze any product, regardless of whether it is water or solvent-based, non-polar, or even in powder form. Most analyses are complete in less than 3 minutes, with results that will compare to the precision previously only obtainable by ASTM oven methods, which can take hours to perform. With a number of safety protocols such as adjustable airflow to quickly remove hazardous volatiles, and a standard flame detection or extinguishing option, the SMART 6 guarantees good results as well as the safety of its operators.
Named one of the top 3 new products at Pittcon® by Instrument Business Outlook, the SMART 6 system is a revolutionary system that will tackle the needs of any chemical production facility.
- As accurate as ASTM reference methods
- Most results available in under 3 minutes
- Multiple safety benefits for a safer analysis
- Results can be stored internally and sent to LIMS
- Downloadable methods for plug and play ease of use
Microwave Muffle Furnace
Safely measure ash content in minutes.The Phoenix BLACK™ has revolutionized ash analysis by supplying users with a safer, more rapid technique for ashing samples. Its the world’s fastest muffle furnace, able to reach optimal ashing temperature in less than 30 minutes, and ash samples in 10 minutes, when it typically takes 1 – 2 hours in other muffle furnaces. With programmable methods that can set ramp and dwell times, the only steps the user has to take is weighing the sample and placing it in the muffle furnace. The Phoenix BLACK will ash the sample and calculate the correct result every time.
For users that require high volumes of product to be analyzed, such as petrochemicals, or samples that produce large amounts of hazardous volatiles, such as plastics, CEM offers the Phoenix BLACK AirWave option. The only muffle furnace that has no moving parts in the exhaust system, the AirWave is a safer option with less maintenance and higher air flow. With ISO, ASTM, and USP approvals, the Phoenix BLACK and Phoenix BLACK AirWave are the world’s best ash analyzers available.
- 97% faster than traditional muffle furnaces
- Approved for use with ISO, ASTM, USP, and DIN methods
- AirWave option for safer analysis of Fuel Oils and Plastics
- Balance or printer connection options
- Set stages for an easier analysis with no Bunsen Burner
Microwave Drying System
Remove the bottleneck of batch release with draw-down analysis in minutes.The SAM-255 has been used for draw-down analysis for almost 20 years, and is the preferred method of drying for the largest paint and coatings manufacturers in the world. With the ability to run either a single or multiple draw-down cards, the SAM-255 can meet the throughput needs of any production facility. By reducing dry times from 60+ minutes to just 6 minutes, any user can easily remove the bottleneck of all spectral analyses and release batches faster, without compromising results. Faster tests allow product batches to be approved and packaged more quickly, giving users the capability of producing 2 – 3 more batches, per line, every day, without expensive production upgrades or expansions.
The SAM-255 comes with accessory card holders to easily run any size drawdown card, and each analysis is run from start to finish at the touch of a button. There is no longer any reason to waste time waiting for color matches and hiding power using the SAM-255.
- 5-minute method for drying drawdown cards
- Trusted by the world’s largest paint manufacturers
- IR temperature control for optimal heating
- Release batches faster to increase production potential
- Easy-to-use — Just add the drawdown card and press Start
Microwave Digestion System
Speed up your sample preparation for metals analysis.The MARS 6 microwave digestion system provides the fastest turnaround of samples for analysis by ICP or ICP-MS. Simple to use three part vessels are easy to assemble. Pre programmed one touch methods automates the process as the system automatically applies the proper power to meet digestion conditions prescribed by USEPA methodologies.
