For continuous measurement of solids, powders and blended materials over conveyance systems and material process flows.
ASD has raised the bar, yet again, for analytical lab equipment with the introduction of the LabSpec 4 Standard-Res laboratory analyzer. Employing state-of-the-art near-infrared (NIR) spectroscopy, the portable spectrometer can quickly and nondestructively measure a wide range of materials with absolute precision.
Optimized to provide the most precise material analysis in the shortest amount of time, the LabSpec 4 Hi-Res spectrometer is the ideal analytical instrument for fast-moving laboratory environments.
The QualitySpec Trek is a truly portable full-range contact spectrometer that is fast, accurate and easy to use.
Configured specifically for fixed-location analysis with AC power, the LabSpec 4 Bench benchtop analyzer provides all the performance of ASD’s LabSpec laboratory spectrometer line in a space-saving and cost-efficient design.
Calling on 20 years of experience in NIR-based forestry, environmental, and plant analysis, ASD has emerged as a world leader in real-time, technology-driven measurement solutions for the forest products industry. ASD’s portfolio of measurement solutions is ideal for use in the lab, on the operator floor, and mounted over the conveyor or product flow.
Partnering with key industrial experts to customize our solutions to specific applications, ASD has developed the industry’s first at-line analyzer for simultaneous measurement of Kappa number and brightness of wet pulp. ASD spectrometers are also ideal for on-line and at-line collection of process data to validate products, increase energy efficiency of the mill, and to reduce raw material costs by increasing process efficiencies. From the forest to the mill automation system, ASD spectrometers achieve critical analyses to maximize your profits and improve your product quality.
ASD’s portable and on-line measurement solutions offer:
