The new In-line Particle Probe IPP 85 combines two measuring probes in one device – an additional measuring mode enables the measurement of fine particles with a lower limit of the measuring range of 20 μm.
A number of new in-line dispersers, specially developed for this fine measuring range, enable the use of the IPP 85 even under challenging conditions (wet, sticky, dusty). In addition, the uncomplicated installation and the intuitive software are features that make the IPP 85 a valuable PAT tool for many pharmaceutical processes.
The IPP 85 also does not contain moving parts that must be switched or adjusted but essentially redesigned optics and electronics. It is GMP-compatible, has ATEX certification for Zone 0/20, and with ParsumView, it fulfills the requirements of 21CFR Part 11.
New Features of IPP 85
- New Measuring Range for Particle Size
A new range is provided for fine particles from 20 μm to 600 μm. The second range from 50μm to 6mm corresponds to the previous measuring mode of the IPP 80-P probe. The switchover only takes place in the software.
- Measurement of High Particle Velocities
The IPP 85 can measure particles up to a speed of 100 m / sec in both measuring ranges, allowing for new, effective dispersion concepts.
- Integrated Probe Memory
Additional memory built into the barrier enclosure contains all the vital information for the unambiguous identification of the probe and stores calibration data (OQ) and error messages. In addition, manuals and certificates belonging to the probe are stored electronically in this memory.
- New Service Features
The measuring software checks the condition of the probe each time the program is started and stores the data for service in the probe memory, automatically reminding the user that calibration or OQ is due.
- Process Assistant
The process assistant enables the quick initial setup of a measuring point in a new process without special knowledge of the software or the measurement parameters.
- New Accessories
New disperser types D34 and D32 ensure effective in-line dispersion of even fine materials, a crucial requirement for reliable measurement.
