From Framework to Particle Sensing
How we Derive Applications from our Quantum Photonic Framework
At Q.ANT, we are all about bringing exciting developments in Quantum Technology to the market — one application and implementation at a time. Our Particle Sensors are the first to hit the streets, and are seeing huge interest by the community in the chemical, biotech and materials industries. Find out below how our sensors deliver value in each particular setting. Or, download our particle sensing one-pager directly here.Particle Sensing OnePager
Real time, in process control of particle size and shape result in increased efficiency and quality
For the chemical industry, particle size and shape, and the detection of unwanted agglomerates, are important quality indicators for intermediate and final products. Whether generated by precipitation, polymerisation or carbonyl reactions, the product’s performance is strongly influenced by particle size, specific surface and shape. Q.ANT Particle Sensors make it easier to retrieve those parameters in process in real time, allowing tighter control of results, less waste, higher product quality and process efficiency.
Improving the yield of bioreactors, one cell at a time
More and more substances important for our everyday lives are generated in bioreactors. Thight control of parameters such as temperature, pH or dissolved gases is routinely applied. Q.ANT Particle Sensors add to that a direct measurement of the reactor’s operating point by looking closely at sizes and shapes of the organisms. Bacteria, yeasts, fungi or algae reproduce along a characteristic growth curve, which can be assessed using our particle shape classification capabilities. In downstream processes, the efficiency of cell disruption can also be measured directly. As a result, the yield of the overall process is improved.
Improved process control for primary and secondary materials
For primary and secondary raw materials, whether used in construction or as substances for further refining, granularity is an important quality factor. They undergo various milling, cyclone separation, sieving, burning, dispersing and transportation processes during treatment. They react, agglomerate or form coatings. Particle size distribution and particle shape are important factors influencing the efficiency of downstream processes. Analyzing them on-line, in real time, gives producers vital efficiency gains, reduced waste, higher overall quality and thus a competitive advantage.ETAP OnePager
