The ASD QualitySpec® 7000 analytical system is comprised of a control cabinet and optical head. The compact optical head mounts over the conveyor and uses a safe quartz-halogen light source for consistent reliable measurement. The reflected signal is transferred from the optical head to the spectrometer through a fiber optic cable.

At the core of the ASD QualitySpec 7000 is the Goetz spectrometer module which covers the Vis/NIR spectral region from 350-2500 nm. Enclosed in a ruggedized stainless-steel enclosure, the system can withstand some of the most extreme process environments from dusty mills to remote rock quarries. Integrated heaters and air conditioning allow the unit to operate efficiently across a range of temperatures from -20 to 50oC (-4 to 122oF).

ASD QualitySpec® 7000 Benefits:

Plant Physiology 
ASD systems are used to determine plant physiological status, including disease status, nutritional status related to nitrogen uptake and moisture balance. 

Oil Sands and Oil Shale Analysis 
ASD instruments are used for onsite monitoring of kerogen and bitumen quantities 

Mining Production and Mineral Processing 
Evaluate and monitor mineral and ore properties to maximize a variety of mining processes and operations. 

Forest Products and Pulp and Paper Analysis
