FT-NIR analyzer for real-time monitoring of refinery and petrochemical process streams.
TALYS ASP400 series  

The TALYS ASP400-Ex series is a simple, robust industrial FT-NIR process analyzer maximizing the return-on investment for refinery and petrochemical industries.




The TALYS ASP400 series analyzer is designed to achieve monitoring and control of continuous processes. Its seamless installation enables real-time process monitoring, determination of stream
properties or physical qualities, process characterization and early troubleshooting.

This analyzer is suitable for a wide range of refinery process monitoring applications including naphtha conversion units such as catalytic reforming, isomerization, naphtha hydro-treating and steam-cracking as well as applications in HF alkylation, gasoline blending and LPG.

− Small Footprint
− Fully integrated in single enclosure
− Unit may be either shelf or wall mounted
− No Analyzer PC required
− ExP purge controller integrated with base enclosure
− Low cost of ownership with virtually no scheduled maintenance for 5 years
− On-board HMI display and embedded controller
− Full connectivity to DCS: Modbus TCP/IP, RTU and OPC
− Hardwired I/O and pneumatics for sample system control in ExD enclosure with ABB PLC module

− Simple installation with very limited footprint in analyzer shelter
− Possible to field-mount in weather-protection cabinet or enclosure
− Multiple properties are estimated simultaneously, and calibration model sets for different process stream grades or types may be implemented
− Minimal field maintenance requirement
− Flexible sampling – the TALYS ASP400 series is suitable for use with insertion / extraction transmission or transflectance probes, flow-through fast-loop sample cells, or full specification extractive sampling system with automatic wash.


The TALYS ASP400 uses all of the new FT-NIR analyzer features introduced with ABB’s latest series of products, including the VECSL solid-state laser, 24bit ADC conversion, active power-management of the NIR source, all leading to a service interval of > 5 years or more.

TALYS possesses an innovative feature for FT-NIR based analyzers with an on-board embedded controller complete with HMI display.This significantly reduces packaging, space, power and other utility requirements. The TALYS system can be accessed remotely by PC over Ethernet for full diagnostics.

TALYS ASP400 is offered in two configurations. One is the ASP400 base analyzer unit designated for safe area location and the other is the ASP400-Ex unit which may be placed directly in hazardous classified areas as Zone 1 (category 2) or Class 1 Div 1.

Applicable in general to most refinery hydrocarbon streams including:
− Naphtha Conversion Units – CCR, HDT, HDS, and ISOM
− Final Product Blending – Gasoline & Diesel
− Naphtha Steam Cracking – Olefins unit
− HF Alkylation – HF, iC4, Olefins
− LPG c3 to c5+
