Exhibiting at the WWEM event, Swan Analytical Instruments has recently announced its AMI Silitrace Ultra, a unique product solution that seemingly embodies continuous reproducibility with ultra-high accuracy in the on-line monitoring of silica concentration in ultra-pure water (UPW), to ensure the integrity of product quality.
Features include a measuring range of 5 ppt (0,005 ppb) to 25 ppb, a reproducibility of ± 0.005 ppb or ± 5%, and the capability for continuous and automatic monitoring of main instrument functions such as: sample flow, reagent supply and process integrity
The system features a UPW concentrator (patented “Carrcentrator” or Reversed Osmosis System created by SWAN AG in partnership with Intel Corporation)
The AMI Silitrace Ultra is described as the only product of its kind, capable of combining a measuring range of 0.005 ppb – 25 ppb, previously only obtainable through sample testing in analytical laboratories, with an on-line and continuous reproducibility of ± 5 ppt. Knowing true contaminant levels at all times is crucial for gap free data accumulation and valuable (future) trend analyses.
This is due to the fact that the AMI Silitrace Ultra uses the UPW concentrator technique; an evidence based method that, according to the firm, “enhances our powerful on-line silica analyzer to continuously monitor real silica levels in UPW up to 40 times more accurate[ly]”.
This technique uses the innovative UPW concentrator (Carrcentrator), which was created by SWAN AG in partnership with and patented by Intel Corporation.
