Quantum Analytics Named Exclusive US Distributor for Aspect Imaging
Distribution Agreement with Aspect Imaging adds NMR Spectroscopy and Rheology MRI Instruments to Quantum Analytics’ industrial product portfolio.
September 12, 2017 – Foster City, California – Quantum Analytics is excited to announce that it has entered into an Exclusive Distribution Agreement with Aspect Imaging, a developer of compact magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) systems for pre-clinical, medical and advanced industrial applications.
Expanding the Quantum Analytics portfolio to include Aspect Imaging NMR spectroscopy products gives industrial laboratories access to state-of-the-art equipment designed to improve profitability and process control.
Through this partnership, customers in applied markets the United States will be able to purchase the Aspect Imaging portfolio of advanced industrial solutions directly from Quantum Analytics. Customers can also take advantage of Quantum Analytics value-added services and flexible financing programs.
“There is a growing need for direct and definitive chemical analysis in the food & drug, petrochemical, and oil & gas industries, especially in challenging processes where accurate, real-time information is critical to maintain operation safety, meet product quality specifications and improve process performance economics,” said Scott Japczynski, executive vice president of Quantum Analytics. “We are very excited to be adding Aspect NMR and MRI to our portfolio of enabling technologies that meet the demands of today’s evolving, automated manufacturing processes.”
“We are delighted to work together with Quantum Analytics to address the emerging market for inline process control applications,” said Uri Rapoport, Aspect Imaging CEO. Our Aspect AI-60 Process Analyzer is a proven technology for advanced industrial fields, like oil and silicon production. Together with Quantum Analytics, we expect to expand this unique technology into more areas, like hydrogen fluoride analysis in polymer production.
Under this new strategic alliance, Quantum Analytics will be responsible for United States sales and support of the Aspect Imaging AI-60 Process Analyzer™, AI-60 Lab NMR™ and the FlowScan™ Rheology MRI systems:
AI-60 Lab NMR™
The Aspect AI-60 Lab NMR systems provide unmatched magnetic stability without the need for cryogens. They enable variable high-temperature and true flow capability for direct molecular analysis. The state-of-the-art 60 MHz FT-NMR is available for at-line and laboratory quality control measurements and near real-time analysis of liquid composition, which are essential in today’s fast paced and demanding chemical and petroleum production laboratories and processes.
AI-60 Process Analyzer™
The power of NMR spectroscopy is now available for real-time on-line analysis. The Aspect AI-60 Process NMR systems provide valuable analytical insight of your process streams where other optical spectroscopy techniques have tried and come up short. Implemented and proven in the harshest process environments, the AI-60 Process NMR is a direct and elegantly simplistic solution for challenging processes, such as crude petroleum oil blending, alkylation optimization and petrochemical production.
The Aspect FlowScan is an on-line rheology MRI platform that delivers unmatched, real-time quantitative results for rheological analysis in complex fluids for drilling mud, agricultural, food processing, biofuel and process control verticals. FlowScan provides the relationship between shear rate and shear stress for any fluid on-line, delivering real-time process control and optimization.
