ParticleTrack G600 Ex Process Technology for Hazardous Locations - Discontinued Product
Inline Measurement For ATEX and Class I, Div 1 Environments
ParticleTrack G600 Ex production instruments with FBRM® technology provide a robust design for real-time monitoring within hazardous environments. ParticleTrack G600 Ex production models are optimized for:
- Installation in pipelines (ParticleTrack G600T Ex with FBRM® technology)
- Small process vessels (ParticleTrack G600P Ex with FBRM® technology)
- Large process vessels (FBRM® G600R Ex with dip pipe installation kit)
FBRM® (Focused Beam Reflectance Measurement) provides the unique ability to measure particles and droplets inline in concentrated suspensions and emulsion without the need for sample extraction or preparation. FBRM® tracks the rate and degree of change to particles and particle structures as they actually exist in-process to help scientists and engineers quickly link particle system dynamics to process conditions, assuring optimal product quality and process efficiency - such as filtration and other downstream processes.
With FBRM® technology, users can:
- Understand how the particle system responds to changing process parameters
- Optimize particle distribution to improve process performance and product quality
- Transfer the process to achieve batch repeatability and process safety
All ParticleTrack G600 Ex production systems can be mounted with a removable threaded adapter flange or triclamp fitting which enables installation in a pipeline or vessel without the need for a permanent weld. Ball valve, ANSI, DN, and other installations are also available. Dip pipe adapter kits including detailed mounting/removal instruction are available.

Monitor Particle Size and Count in Piloting and Production
ParticleTrack G600 with FBRM technology is a rugged probe-based instrument that is inserted directly into large-scale vessels or pipelines to track changing particle size and count in real time at full process concentrations. Particles, particle structures and droplets are monitored continuously, as process parameters vary, allowing engineers to monitor, troubleshoot and improve processes effectively.
Particle size and count directly impact performance in multiphase processes including:
By monitoring particle size and count in real time, at full production scales, engineers can monitor process consistency and identify strategies to make significant process improvements.
Particles can change when sampled and prepared for offline analysis. By tracking changes to size and count, as particles naturally exist in process, engineers obtain process understanding at full production scales, safely and with no time delay – even at extremes of temperature and pressure.
By monitoring particles continuously, as operating conditions vary, it is possible to determine the root cause of poorly performing processes. Operators can identify process upsets quickly and engineers can utilize evidence obtained at full production scale to redesign challenging processes and make improvements.
A flexible mounting system allows probes to be installed in reactors or pipelines using standard flanges, dip pipes and ball valves across a wide range of temperatures and pressures. Optional purged enclosures rated to ATEX and Class I, Div 1 standards ensure instruments can be installed safely in hazardous locations.
