For sensor and instrumentation manufacturers, performance and reliability are critical to success. With the introduction of Optan SMD, Crystal IS can meet manufacturers’ sensing needs while also protecting costly instruments in ocean and industrial process instrumentation.

“Our customers came to us with a difficult situation in controlling biofouling, where coatings, traditional UV lamps or mechanical wipers weren’t that effective,” said Larry Felton, CEO of Crystal IS. "Our latest Optan product will solve that problem, especially when it comes to ocean and industrial process instrumentation.”

Optan SMD is a long life solution with low power consumption, giving users an increase in intervals for instrument maintenance. Optan SMD is environmentally friendly, essential for biofilm and biofouling control where solutions available today are either not completely effective or being phased out due to toxicity concerns.

For manufacturers of instruments, Optan SMD enables more effective and efficient biofilm and biofouling control. Damage resulting from bacteria and biofilms has wide ranging impact across industries which is estimated to cost several hundred billion dollars annually.

The device supports Total Organic Carbon (TOC) monitoring in water. High levels of TOC can degrade industrial water purification systems – reducing semiconductor yields, contaminating pharmaceutical batches and damaging power and steam generation equipment.

Optan SMD can also be used as a low voltage source of UVC light for calibration of cameras and photodetectors.
