NEW ORLEANS—Fluence Analytics has unveiled the third generation of its ACOMP product, an automated smart manufacturing system that the firm claims continuously analyzes polymers during production while producing realtime insights into reaction kinetics and polymer properties such as residual monomer, monomer conversion, polymer composition, molecular weight and intrinsic viscosity.
The newest generation ACOMP includes enhanced software user interface and analytics functionality, an upgraded detector train and new smart sensors, Fluence said it also has a higher temperature throughput which allows it to process a broader range of polymer applications.
"This evolution in ACOMP improves the user's experience, contributes to overall efficiency, and more accurately characterizes important polymer properties," Michael Drenski, chief technical officer of Fluence Analytics said in a statement. "We look forward to using our third-generation ACOMP to optimize polymerization processes for our customers."
In conjunction with the release of the upgraded ACOMP system, Fluence Analytics is launching a demo program which will allow potential clients to experience ACOMP's realtime data first-hand. Demo units will also be available for purchase.
"We see a future where ACOMP's unique realtime data, combined with, and contextualizing other process parameters, changes how polymer materials are developed and manufactured around the world," CEO Alex Reed said in a statement. "This smart manufacturing technology enables optimum efficiency, profitability and sustainability."
