About Us

Founded in 2013, Tornado Spectral Systems Inc is a global provider of chemical analysis & measurement systems for Raman spectrometers. Bolstered by its patented High Throughput Virtual Slit (HTVS™) technology, Tornado’s HyperFlux™ Raman spectrometers deliver significantly enhanced photon collection power.

The HTVS™ technology allows the best Raman measurement analysis currently achievable anywhere. The superior performance of Tornado’s HyperFlux™ PRO Plus Raman spectrometer solutions allow for more accurate chemical identification, and quantitation even with challenging mixtures and low concentrations, faster measurements of dynamic reactions, and low laser power operation in hazardous environments.

Vision Statement

To deliver superior performance and innovative technological process monitoring solutions using spectrometers, which provides our customers a distinct competitive advantage.

Mission Statement

To deliver superior Raman spectrometers with its proprietary HTVS™ technology which eliminates photon loss and delivers better sensitivity and faster measurements. Our purpose is to provide innovative Raman technology alongside unparalleled customer success by offering in-situ process solutions.
