Instant Non-Contact Process Measurement
This simple-to-use device allows the user to conduct accurate continuous measurements of product components -- without sampling, product contact, or degradation. Using the principle of near-infrared reflectance, items such as moisture, fat, protein, film thickness and carbon content (BTU) can be monitored and process control automated.
Kett Composition Meters can measure on conveyors, augurs, drop chutes, pneumatic transport and gravity feeds. In addition, the KJT550's precision allows measurement through sight glasses into process vessels such as spray dryers, fluid-bed dryers, calcincers and rotary granulators. If the product can be seen, it can be accurately measured!
The ability to test in almost any situation opens new doors to product and process
assessment. R&D personnel can easily analyze formulations during production, not
just in laboratory settings. Manufacturing personnel can measure products on the
production line, improving quality assessment and production throughput.
Once calibrated, the KJT550 is simply aimed at the surface of the liquid or solid to be measured and light is absorbed by the chemical components to be measured. The detected absorbance is converted into component values. Up to 100 product calibrations are stored in each measurement head, allowing measurement at multiple points on a process, or, different processes, by simply unbolting the four mounting bolts, moving the head to the new location, rebolting, and connecting to AC power.
Designed for Years of Stable Use
Integrated temperature/humidity compensation, air purge capability, Nema 4 housing (and explosion proof options), sealed electrical connectors, and custom built components give you with the assurance that these meters will provide years of use. To maintain calibration over the life of the instrument, simply insert the included "zero plate" and the KJT550 system will be brought back to baseline measurement in less than five seconds.
Kett stands behind the KJT550 systems with a full One-Year guarantee on parts and labor. Kett's dependable quality allows you to productively focus on improving your product's quality, not waste time calibrating and verifying our gauges.
