AMETEK Demonstrates TDLAS for Pharmaceutical Dryer End Point Detection


Release Date: Wednesday, March 23, 2016

PITTSBURGH, PA—AMETEK Process Instruments has successfully demonstrated that tunable diode laser absorption spectroscopy (TDLAS) can provide the advantages of continuous process control of pharmaceutical drying to manufacturers using water as their primary solvent. This new capability offers water solvent users the cost savings that have long been available to processors using non-water solvents through process mass spectrometry.
Up to now, water solvent users have had to stop the drying process and manually remove a sample for Loss of Drying (LOD) analysis. If the product is not dry, the process is restarted and allowed to run for an indeterminate period.  This time-consuming process is repeated until the LOD achieves a predetermined value.
Manufacturers have long known that process mass spectrometry can be used for continuous real-time monitoring and control of non-water solvent drying processes. Pharmaceutical makers who rely on water as their principal solvent can now use TDLAS technology as a lower-cost, time-saving procedure to determine dryer end-point.

Trial Demonstrates Effectiveness of TDLAS in Water Solvent Drying
Working with a pharmaceutical manufacturer, AMETEK Process Instruments set up a production trial using its Model 5100 HD analyzer to monitor the batch production of a widely prescribed medication whose synthesis involves the use of water as the final rinse agent.
The trial demonstrated that TDLAS techniques could be used to continuously monitor and control the solvent drying process online, in real time, without operator intervention or process interruption. The results further indicated that TDLAS has the potential to significantly reduce drying times, while improving both production and product quality for pharmaceutical manufacturers and other bulk powder producers who rely on water as the principal solvent in their processes. Because TDLAS is a non-contact technique, it offers fast response speeds, which can mean substantial savings in both time and cost.
The Model 5100 analyzer is a highly versatile instrument that utilizes TDLAS technology in a variety of configurations, including single- and dual-laser platforms with one or two sample cells for measuring different process components simultaneously. It can provide on-line, real-time process control of moisture levels down to 4 parts per million, or 2%, of the reading, whichever is greater, based on the moisture level requirements of a drying chamber.

Analysers and Next Generation SRU Control


Release Date: Thursday, February 12, 2015

The history of on-line process analytics is a relatively short one. Development was driven by the need for process control of high value hydrocarbon based products. The first on-line analyser applications came during the second war. Rapid development came in the 1970s with the advent of the microprocessor and resultant chemometric techniques. Led by Phillips Petroleum, Union Carbide and Dupont Chemical, amongst others, these initiatives were the antecedents of today’s Siemens Applied Automation, ABB Analytics and AMETEK Process Instruments.

Whether or not sulphur can be considered a high value product, in most cases the driving force for process measurement and control of the SRU is largely environmental. The US EPA Clean Air Act of 1970 and the ground-breaking study by Alberta Environment on the capability of the modified Claus process coincided with the first attempts to control the modified Claus process using an on-line analyser and closed loop control.

PROMAXION PROCESS MASS SPECTROMETRY OFFERS ON-LINE MONITORING OF BTEX AND OTHER AMBIENT AIR


Release Date: Friday, May 22, 2009

Download the entire Press Release for Promaxion Process Mass Spectrometry Offers On-Line Monitoring of BTEX and Other VOCs in Ambient Air

PITTSBURGH, PA – Industries that produce or use hazardous substances in their processes are required to monitor the environment in and around their plants and facilities to ensure that concentrations of known pollutants remain below acceptable limits of exposure.

Of particular concern is a class of compounds known as volatile organic compounds (VOCs) that include benzene, toluene, ethylbenzene and xylenes and are referred to collectively as BTEX. Also included are such highly reactive VOCs as ethylene, propylene, 1-3 butadiene and butanes. The BTEX chemicals are used as solvents or intermediates and occur together in gasoline as well as other petroleum products. All have some acute and long-term effects to human health, while benzene in particular is a known carcinogen.

The ProMaxion® process mass spectrometer from AMETEK Process Instruments provides fast on-line monitoring of VOCs in ambient air in a reliable, easy-to-use instrument. It comes equipped with a membrane inlet mass spectrometer (MIMS) that provides data at 10 to 15 seconds per sample stream and is between 10 and 50 times faster than most GC methods that require separation prior to analysis.

At the heart of the ProMaxion mass spectrometer is a dimethylsilicone membrane inlet coupled directly to its ion source. A sub-atmospheric sampling system draws a sample into the analyzer. The membrane selectively extracts analyte and delivers a highly enriched sample directly to the ion source. The extreme sensitivity of the ProMaxion allows it to detect very low levels of VOC emissions.

The speed of the ProMaxion facilitates the analysis of multiple streams. Up to 80 inlet ports are available providing the option of a centrally located, high stream count, multiple sample point configuration. Another approach is to have fewer sample points to minimize the length of the sample lines and provide the earliest advance notice of contamination. System design depends on plant layout and user preferences.

The proprietary software provides for easy set-up, operation and calibration together with advanced alarm and automation capabilities. Self-diagnostics and a modular design ensure ease of maintenance, and modem support is available for additional factory diagnosis and troubleshooting. Data can be exported using all common industrial protocols as well as dedicated analogue lines to bring the data to a common point for collection. Alarms are available for every stream, and a mathematical package allows data to be presented in various ways.

Mass spectrometry offers direct quantification of the species of interest, as well as a total reading. A single mass ion can be chosen specific to each compound and these masses can be continuously monitored. If a total concentration is required, the mass spectrometer can survey all VOCs or BTEX, total them within the software, and output realtime concentration. This technique also avoids sounding false alarms.

The analyser can periodically scan for mass intensities across the operating range and can detect abnormal conditions such as leaks or other problems. Another advantage of the ProMaxion is its ability to provide rapid measurement of multiple components on the same sample stream. Different calibration and analysis methods can be assigned to each inlet port.

The ProMaxion draws on AMETEK’s 20 years of experience in mass spectrometer design and manufacture and more than 30 years experience in the design and development of sophisticated process analyzers.

AMETEK Process Instruments is a unit of AMETEK, Inc., a leading global manufacturer of electronic instruments and electric motors.
