TANGO FT-NIR Spectrometers

  • TANGO FT-NIR Spectrometers

    Tango creates values.

    Fast measurements for high sample throughput, simultaneous evaluation of different components and an intuitive handling, without need for expertise training: TANGO simplifies the NIR analysis and therefore offers maximum security of the results. Specifically targeted for the given application and the demands required of an efficient analyzer.

    Tango is intuitive.

    Forget tedious training courses or specialized knowledge. TANGO makes it simple for you: with its intuitive user interface it guides the operators quickly and securely through the work flow. Also untrained staff can operate the spectrometer securely and error free. Good to know: the user interface is available in more than 15 languages. 

    Sample handling the easy way.

    When it comes to sample handling, TANGO saves time and prevents operating errors. No sample preparation is necessary, no chemicals, no additional reagents. The sample is simply filled into the measuring cup or vial with the measurement being done through glass.

    Faster, simpler, more secure - with TANGO your NIR analysis speeds up. TANGO has exactly what users require of an FT-NIR spectrometer suitable for industrial use: robustness, high precision and straightforward operator guidance.

    Automatic: Background measurements.

    Contributing to the high precision of FT-NIR spectrometers is the exact alignment with the background. TANGO goes one step further: The background measurements are performed automatically without user intervention. This alignment can even take place if a sample is located in the sampling position. The perfect prerequisite for optimal and secure measurements at any time – without (human) errors.

    Practical: Efficiency in every detail.

    TANGO demonstrates how easy NIR analysis can be, not just during measurements. The housing and touch-screen monitor are rugged and easy to clean – ideal for lab and at-line environments. The exchange of the light source, if required, can be done in a few seconds. Also the desiccant cartridge, which keeps the inside low on humidity can be changed easily.

    Operation on-site: Precise technology and robust design.

    Industrial conditions demand a great deal from highly precise measuring instruments. No problem for the TANGO. Due to its special construction it can handle tough conditions and is perfectly suited for rough environments. Besides its encapsulated housing to protect the optics, TANGO is insensitive to vibrations and temperature changes. Behind the design there is a logical philosophy: It is better to exclude errors from the beginning rather than correcting them afterwards.

    Transmission measurements: highest precision for liquids.

    TANGO for measuring liquids comes equipped with an active sample heater/cooler as standard. The temperature of the sample can be selected between +20°C and +80°C. A sensor is permanently checking the temperature of the sample vial. This allows for a fast temperature control of the sample and therefore quick and reliable results.

    Reflection measurements: analyze solids efficiently.

    TANGO for measuring solids contains a gold coated integrating sphere for analysis
    by diffuse reflection. This sphere ensures highly reproducible measurements of inhomogeneous samples. The diameter of the measurement spot is around 10 mm; the measured sample surface can be enlarged by using sample rotators.

  • The proven FT-NIR technology by Bruker was combined with an easy-to-use touch screen operation and a small footprint, perfect for those laboratories with limited space.
