A robust near infrared (NIR) process spectrometer for use in hazardous locations.
Rugged and safe in hazardous locations, the MicroNIR PAT-X process spectrometer is designed for real-time process monitoring in pharmaceutical, industrial and food process analytical technology (PAT) applications.

The PAT-X is the hazardous location version of the popular VIAVI PAT-U miniature process spectrometer. Safe in the presence of flammable gases, vapors, fibers, or dust, the PAT-X enables moving a process directly to production in a hazardous location using chemometric models and processes developed in the ordinary location of a laboratory. The PAT-X attaches readily to fixed processing equipment of all types and sizes, with the performance and stability to support truly efficient – and scalable – manufacturing.
