Seven Hills International Limited

Seven Hills Raman Analyser


Raman Fiber Multiplexer

The Fiber-Optic Multiplex System for Raman Spectroscopy (patented) can be used to expand the use of our Raman Spectrometer. Through switching the excitation and collection fibers, Our Raman spectrometer can monitor up to 18 probes. This can be done with minimal signal loss, and very high repeatability

 

 

 

The Fiber-Optic Multiplexer had become popular with feed-forward applications for refineries, where our Seven Hills Raman and multiplexer control their blending header while looking at the incoming component streams.

The Fiber-optic Multiplex system can come in a variety of options. We offer 9 and / or 18 Max channels, and also a lab, or a 19" rack mount version
