Quantum Analytics Named Exclusive US Distributor of Keit Spectrometers for Fine and Petro Chemical Industries
Distribution Agreement with Keit Spectrometers Adds Process FTIR Spectroscopy to Quantum Analytics’ Industrial Product Portfolio
January 15, 2019 – Foster City, California – Quantum Analytics is excited to announce that it has entered into an Exclusive Distribution Agreement with Keit Spectrometers, a developer of FTIR technology for process monitoring and control applications in manufacturing industries.
Through this partnership, customers in applied markets in the United States will be able to purchase Keit’s rugged FTIR spectrometer product directly from Quantum Analytics. The Keit IRmadillo™ spectrometer is a uniquely compact and robust device for operating in tough manufacturing environments. Its design has no moving parts, which helps produce an extremely stable instrument capable of operating in high-vibration working environments.
“There is a growing need for better process monitoring and control in manufacturing environments,” said Scott Japczynski, executive vice president of Quantum Analytics. “We are very excited to be adding Keit’s IRmadillo spectroscopy product to our portfolio of enabling technologies that meet the demands of today’s evolving, automated manufacturing processes.”
Dan Wood, CEO, Keit Spectrometers stated “Quantum Analytics was selected due to its established reputation for process monitoring instrumentation, the quality of support and knowledge of the target industries. From their Southern Technology Center in North Houston, Texas, Quantum Analytics will provide US manufacturers of petrochemical and fine chemical products access to Keit’s rugged FTIR spectrometer”.
Dan continued, “Our instrument fills a gap for the need to have a tough, mid-infrared process instrument that can provide continuous, real-time chemical analysis of liquids with dependability and stability”.
Under this new strategic alliance, Quantum Analytics will be responsible for sales and support of the IRmadillo in situ production FTIR spectrometer in the United States.
