MB3600-CH30 FT-NIR Laboratory Analyzer for Biodiesel

The MB3600-CH30 is an FT-NIR Laboratory Analyzer for Biodiesel Applications Suitable for Production Optimization and Product Quality Assessment. It can provide a rapid determination of mono-, di- and tri-glyceride content, residual methanol, methyl ester % and other quality parameters in biodiesel for finished product screening and end-point determination in biodiesel reactors.


ABB has been a world leader in FT-NIR analysis solutions for many years.

ABB presents the new MB3600-CH30, a high-performance laboratory FT-NIR method development analyzer for biodiesel analysis, biodiesel production optimization, and product quality assessment, suitable for analysis of mono-, di-, and tri-glycerides, methanol, total glycerol, and the percentage of methyl ester in a biodiesel B100 product.

The MB3600-CH30 laboratory analyzer simplifies biodiesel analysis in the laboratory.

It's very easy to run large sample batches and easy to use the software, which is pre-installed with starter applications required for quality assurance and control analysis.

The MB3600-CH30 laboratory FT-NIR analyzer allows for the simple setup of calibrations for multiple important biodiesel qualities.

The health-monitoring diagnostics can be consulted continuously to ensure data integrity.

Instrument validation can be done at any time while the analysis is in progress, and it provides a complete quality assurance report.

The sampling is easily done by using heated disposable glass vials, which eliminate sample cell cleaning.

The quality assurance and control workflow software is easy to use.

Push only one button to proceed to the sample analysis and get results in less than two minutes, easy to use, operator friendly, and with very low cost of analysis.

The MB3600-CH30 laboratory FT-NIR analyzer is not only a valuable and reliable tool for mono-, di-, and tri-glycerides, methanol, total glycerol, the percentage of methyl ester, and biodiesel B100 product determination.  It also allows easy custom calibration model development for a wide range of other typical analyses.

ABB offers a full range of custom modeling services and chemometric training for our customers.

Routine analysis for other samples could be done in the same way.  Transfer a second sample to the analysis position.  The standard analytical methods for biodiesel methyl ester are time consuming and often require multiple physical analyses per sample.

ABB Analytical is one of the major manufacturing centers for laboratory and process analytical systems with more than 35 years of experience in developing FT-IR and FT-NIR spectrometers.
