New Microsoft Windows 10-Compatible Process Analyser Software Streamlines Industrial Process Monitoring

Oct 30 2020

Now running on Microsoft Windows 10, Thermo Scientific Chromeleon 7 Process Analyzer (Chromeleon 7 PA) software optimises industrial process monitoring. When used with on-line ion chromatography (IC) and high performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) PA systems, the software drives operational efficiencies and enables early, accurate detection of contaminants or irregularities that could impact product quality or system integrity. With reliable data acquisition, processing and reporting capabilities, the software facilitates well-informed, timely decision-making to prevent damage to facilities, reduce product failure and boost yield.

Chromeleon 7 PA software enables simplified configuration, along with precise and integrated control over the entire sample and analytical process, allowing for unattended, 24/7 analyser operation. Users can benefit from a versatile interface and the additional functionality offered by the newly launched Thermo Scientific Chromeleon 7.3 chromatography data system (CDS) software, upon which it is based. Bidirectional communication with external data acquisition, automation and control systems is enabled using industry standard open platform communications (OPC). The software facilitates compliance with regulations such as 21 CFR Part 11, a crucial requirement for United States Food and Drug Administration (US FDA) regulated industries.

The process monitoring capabilities of Chromeleon 7 PA software make it ideal for use across a number of industries, including pharmaceutical/biopharmaceutical production, chemical/petrochemical manufacturing, power, semiconductor manufacturing and water treatment.

Key applications include: trace analysis of ultrapure water for use in semiconductor manufacturing and power plant cooling; reaction and water purity monitoring, as well as cleaning validation, in pharmaceutical/biopharmaceutical production; reaction process/endpoint determination and waste stream discharge monitoring in chemical/petrochemical manufacturing; inflow and outflow monitoring in water treatment plants.

Comprehensive user management tools allow for controlled access and status monitoring of all analyser components. Moreover, synchronised operation of multiple systems enables sequential sample analysis, maximising throughput and productivity. Remote monitoring and control are also possible.

Programmable sample stream sequencing and analysis frequency, as well as automatic scheduling of system suitability samples, check standards and calibrations, facilitate simplified, unattended operation.

The system provides real-time alerts when contaminants reach unacceptable levels, notifications of result-based events and hardware alarms drive appropriate, timely corrective actions. The software offers a broad range of preconfigured and user-defined conditional responses to keep the analysers running and generating meaningful results.
