Emerson Process Management has acquired Spectrex, Inc., a manufacturer of flame and open path gas detectors. Spectrex will join the Rosemount portfolio of measurement and analytical technologies. Terms of the acquisition were not disclosed.
Spectrex developed the world’s first ultraviolet-infrared (UV/IR) and triple infrared (IR3) flame detectors and was first to introduce xenon flash lamps in open path detector design, increasing detectors’ resilience to atmospheric conditions while reducing power consumption.
Spectrex and its staff are located in Cedar Grove, NJ, with sales and technical support offices in Houston, UK and Taiwan.
