In 1983 Guided Wave was recognized as an industry leader when it delivered the first fiber optic-based Near Infrared analyzers. Today Guided Wave is the only process NIR vendor that provides a complete optically matched system, yielding the best throughput efficiency and long-term performance that exceeds industry standards.

Guided Wave designs and manufactures complete analytical systems utilizing proven Near Infrared (NIR) and Ultraviolet / Visible (UV/Vis) spectroscopic techniques. We deliver a total solution that includes optically matched components and a well-planned calibration approach leading to long-term success and savings. Our state-of-the-art systems are designed for continuous online use, providing real-time data of laboratory quality while thriving in the most demanding processing plant environments. Our product reliability, a stable instrument platform, and responsive technical support are why companies from around the world have depended on Guided Wave.

Guided Wave analyzer systems consist of rugged, yet highly efficient sample interface designs that may be remotely coupled to the spectrometer or photometer at a safe distance from common areas. Additionally, our analyzers can be fitted with optional equipment making them suitable for use in hazardous environments. Even after installation, safety benefits continue. Built-in interpretive diagnostics allow for instant notification of significant changes to the chemical composition of your process.

Guided Wave systems provide real-time characterization of the stream, allowing for the most efficient and effective processing. The production rates and delivery schedules demanded by your company’s resource planning are easily met. Most importantly, because of the access to real-time data, the target quality of your product is never in question. Your customers’ expectations are consistently achieved.
