CSA Installs Near-Infrared Analyzer Automation in 6th BASF Site

CSA assisting BASF’s Dr. Richard Crews has recently installed a Near Infrared (NIR) software application in BASF’s Geismar, Louisiana facility. This marks the sixth successful installation of a process analytical chemistry (PAC) software application that CSA developed in partnership with BASF.

BASF’s NIR PAC application utilizes analytical chemistry with specialized techniques, algorithms, and sampling equipment for solving problems related to their chemical processes by the testing of critical process parameters with near-infrared (NIR) analyzers. The application’s quick turnaround and continuous results empower BASF to make real-time adjustments to processes. The end result: higher throughput and better quality control.
