A fast, reliable and low cost characterization of materials/ products as fed to a process, and/or resulting from different processing actions, represents one of the most challenging targets in the industry, with reference to several sectors (i.e. primary and secondary raw materials, environment, food industry, pharmaceutical, etc.). Today, thanks to the strong technological development, different techniques are available according to different sampling strategies and analytical principles to detect specific physical-chemical attributes of materials/products, representing the key factor to perform a full process monitoring and/or to apply specific control/tuning actions on the process itself. The attributes can be determined off-line (e.g. sample collection and laboratory scale analyses) or on-line (e.g. direct collection from the products flow stream of the information of interest). In this Webminar (ID#: 1216951) the principles and the possibilities offered by the adoption of specialized devices allowing to develop on-line acquisition/processing strategies, based on HyperSpectral Imaging (HSI) and finalised to perform materials/products streams characterization, inspection and quality control actions, are presented and discussed.
1. HyperSpectral Imaging (HSI) based techniques fundamentals.
2. Analytical applicative potentialities of HyperSpectral Imaging (HSI) with reference to both “off-line” and “on-line” applications addressed to qualitatively and quantitatively assess materials and/or products characteristics.
