tec5USA Inc., one of the leaders in process spectroscopy, is excited to announce their participation at the AIChE Kister Distillation Symposium, on Tuesday April 20, 2021. Amanda Muraca, Ph.D., will lead the presentation on monitoring benzene precursors in naphtha reformer feeds. Scheduled for 10:20AM CT, tec5USA will discuss the advantages of using Raman spectroscopy for monitoring reformer feeds as well as the capabilities of their products to cater to the demands of refinery environments.
Raman spectroscopy has been increasingly used for process optimization because of its ability to take quick and specific measurements on the fly: “Raman Spectroscopy is a powerful analytical tool for the petrochemical industry…” – Amanda Muraca, Ph.D.
Amanda Muraca is the Head of Business Development and Application Science for Chemistry, Petrochemistry, Food & Agriculture. Her technical expertise and problem-solving ability allows her to tackle difficult analytical problems and bring catered solutions to customers.
Also presenting alongside will be Norman P. Lieberman and Elizabeth Lieberman from Process Improvement Engineering located in New Orleans LA. They are chemical engineering consultants, specializing in continuous chemical plant and oil refinery troubleshooting, operation, and design, with over 50 years experience in the process industries including crude oil refining, gas processing and chemical plants.
tec5USA is the North American subsidiary of tec5 AG, who belong to the publicly traded company Nynomic AG, an international photonics group and leading manufacturer of products for permanent, non-contact and non-destructive optical measurement technology.
Rather than waiting for time-consuming laboratory measurements, tec5USA’s instruments rapidly measure time-critical chemical and physical parameters to react immediately to deviations in the production line, permitting real-time process verification and closed-loop controls. This hence enables consistent quality, waste minimization and rework reduction, yield maximization, end-to-end supply chain optimization and pay per content. Industries tec5USA serves are semiconductor manufacturing equipment, thin film technology, chemistry, petrochemistry, environmental technology, the mining industry, biotechnology and pharma, food, feed and beverages as well as agriculture.
