Introducing the Oxford Instruments Magnetic Resonance : MQC+ Spin Finish Analyser

Over the years the fibre and textile industries have been developing a wider array of products using a variety of polymers and coatings. The performance of those products are optimized for a particular application. Time Domain Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (TD-NMR) methods are being developed to meet the requirements of those products and they can be applied to a variety of products such as yarn, monofilaments, staple fibre, textiles and non-wovens. The measurables include:

  • Oil-based coatings, e.g. spin finish
  • Fluorinated coatings
  • Elastomeric coatings, e.g. latex
  • Finish removal
  • Fibre crystallinity

Key Features

Industry accepted method
Used in 100s of factories world-wide. Allows rapid data collection for process optimisation (Design of Experiment), changes to and control of multiple lines.

Minimal sample preparation
Simply transfer the sample into a tube, weigh then analyse in seconds. No sample preparation is required.

The same instrument may be used to make a variety of measurements; an additional or different probe will be required to measure fluorinated coatings.

NMR is a bulk measurement technique and so measures all of the oil on the sample.

Simple linear calibration
Calibrations may be obtained using just three reference samples.

No hazardous solvents or chemicals
The NMR method does not require solvents which are hazardous to use and costly to dispose of. In addition, it does not create high temperatures or pressures.

The same sample may be measured repeatedly by NMR, but also analysed by other techniques.

Automation option
Automated analysis of up to 125 samples using the MQC+ with the MQ-Auto.

Key Benefits

food Oil in snack foods, total fat in chocolate, fat in foodstuffs and Solid Fat Content (SFC)
Agriculture Oil and moisture in oilseeds and their residues, oil in dried olive paste and oil in dried palm mesocarp
Textile Spin finish on fibre, also known as Oil Pick-Up (OPU), Finish on Yarn (FoY), lubricant and avivage
Consumer products Lotion on fabric and fluorine in toothpaste
Petroleum Hydrogen content in fuel, oil content in waxes and wax content in petroleum products
Polymers Xylene solubles in polypropylene, plasticiser in PVC, polymer density & crystallinity, oil in rubber and fluorine content
Other Fluorine in powders (e.g. fluorspar, alumina) and limestone filler in asphalt

For high throughput of samples and greater control of your production.

Good repeatability enables accurate measurements at low concentrations.

imple intuitive software, suitable for unskilled users, guides the operator through the analysis.

Users can carry out routine cleaning to ensure consistent results.
