On-line sampling system for larger scale bioprocesses

Accurate sampling is vital for the improvement of a wide variety of industrial, chemical, and biofuel processes. To maximise performance, a sampling solution that provides  24/7 automated, real-time analyte monitoring, fraction collection, feed control, and data processing will allow increased process performance and development.

Automated on-line sampling for up to 8 vessels

The Flownamics Seg-Flow 8000i is a fully automated on-line sampling system that offers multiple process monitoring and control solutions designed for biofuel, chemical or industrial processes.

The Seg-Flow’s patented segmented on-line sampling technology means rapid and accurate sampling for up to 8 vessels, and sample delivery to up to 4 analyzers and/or fraction collectors, and it uses a chemically inert fluid path with automated cleaning or sterilizing after each sample.

For maximum flexibility, several feed control options are available, and the Seg-Flow 8000i can control up to 2 pumps per vessel.

The 8000i is scale independent, and can be used with laboratory, pilot or production vessels. It utilises the unique FISP in-situ sampling probe which provides an aseptic barrier between the vessel and the Seg-Flow system.

The Seg-Flow features a built-in touchscreen HMI, providing control over a large number of sample and feed options. The easy-to-use system requires minimal training, and allows parameters to be programmed within minutes.

The internal Flow-Web web server logs data and information for each vessel or stream independently, and allows viewing and control from any PC or mobile device.

The Sefg-Flow’s highly flexible operating software can be tailored to your specific applications. It allows data to be saved in spreadsheet format, or automatically exported to other software. System status and reporting can be quickly checked from any device with a browser and internet access.
