LiquidOcean Applied ‘s LTMS Liquid Transmission SystemLiquid

Product Details

Ensure Color Consistency for Your Customers with Ocean Applied’s LTMS Liquid Transmission System. The LTMS is a spectroscopy-based system for real-time, in-line monitoring of liquids — including pharmaceuticals, industrial dyes, plating baths, and chemical coatings. It’s based on the use of a built-in, flow-cell setup with automatic fluid handling. The sensor portion of the LTMS is a compact transmission- and absorbance-platform with a rugged, benchtop configuration designed for harsh environments and industries — including consumer electronics manufacturing, food and beverages, and semiconductors.

The LTMS is a powerful tool for managing batch-to-batch color consistency in plating baths for metal parts or dye baths for textiles. It’s also primarily used for monitoring concentration-levels for chemical coatings and pharmaceuticals. Plus, as an in-line system, the LTMS eliminates the need to transport samples from the production-line to quality-control labs — saving time, resources, and making it possible to quickly address any quality issues in real time.

Product Overview

  • Fully integrated system – robust, customized system complete with spectroscopy-based transmission measurement, modeling algorithms, and fluid handling
  • In-line, batch-to-batch color consistency and concentration monitoring – real-time measurements speed up workflows by detecting quality issues as they occur
  • Maximized production yields – improve batch efficiency by minimizing rework and increasing uptime
  • Flexible setup – as measurement needs change, you can easily move LTMS from tank to tank to analyze new liquid samples
  • No specialist needed – can be operated by manufacturing personnel
