PROSIS™ Infrared Process Analysis Thickness Sensor

Producers of plastic films, extrusion coatings, blown films, and nonwovens can get accurate thickness and moisture data, improve product quality, and precisely control raw material use with an easily-calibrated infrared gauge. Whether you need a coating thickness gauge, paint thickness gauge, or film thickness gauge, the Thermo Scientific™ PROSIS™ Infrared Process Analysis Thickness Sensor uses the full spectral response of the near infrared range to analyze materials on the line, providing precise, multi-component thickness data that improves production quality and reduces waste.

The PROSIS Infrared Process Analysis Thickness Sensor for web gauging simultaneously measures and analyzes the entire NIR spectrum instead of a few preselected filters that only give you a small part of the picture. The robust measurement performance of this infrared gauge delivers data quickly to increase yield, reduce scrap and raw material costs, and improve product quality.

  • Easy to use and calibrate- EZCAL calibration software integrated into system.
  • Calibration transfer from line to line reduces cost by eliminating multiple system calibration.
  • Low cost of ownership.
  • Exceptional performance for both single and multi-layer product structure.
  • Accurate multilayer measurement of direct coat weight(s) and based substrate (if organic material).
  • Ideal for multi-layer coating on board.
  • Completely safe non-nuclear solution- no license required.
  • Complete spectrum infra-red gauge for best measurement.
  • State-of-the-art high speed electronics.
  • Zero moving parts for durability and long life.
  • Temperature stabled sensor compatible with ambient temp of up to 55°C without external cooling.
