A breakthrough high resolution, real-time, industrial molecular analyser for advanced process control and energy optimization


Existing industrial process analysis procedures demand large quantities of energy and expensive resources as a result of
ineffective and insensitive equipment. optiQGain after analysing the existing Scattered Raman Specroscopy (SRS)
technologies in the fields of academia and research decided to create the SRSensor; a break-through, real-time, lightweight,
cost effective, IoT based, on-site system for high resolution commercial molecular level analysis. The SRSensor, comprised
of a range of probes and a main CPU unit, utilises a SRS spectrophotometer which produces a high resolution Raman
spectrum in 0.1 seconds. The data is then transferred via fiber optic cables to the main CPU for data processing and
presentation to the engineer or process manager. The highly accurate molecular analysis results can be adopted in a vast
range of process analysis fields to optimise industrial processes, offer high resource efficiency, and huge cost savings
resulting from lower maintenance costs and potential avoidance of unexpected engine, turbine, and generator failure.
optiQgain will initially target Natural Gas and Biogas processing plants, turbines and gas transporting grid (pipelines), where industry demand and potential savings are substantial since many players in this industry are actively seeking new innovative technologies for sustainable success, as part of the intensively evolving Industrial I.o.T revolution. Within the overall innovation project, optiQgain aims to
upgrade subcomponents of the sensor and finalise the industrial design of the SRSensor system for improved accuracy;
transfer the production to a secured third party contract manufacture; optimise the process for adoption in Natural Gas and Biogas plants and gas turbines and pipelines; perform a quality demonstration and validation of the SRS technology at different site locations and
develop a sound commercialisation and market strategy.
