Learn more about Tornado Spectral Systems

Founded in 2013, Tornado Spectral Systems designs, manufactures and sells chemical analysis systems based on Raman spectroscopy. 

  • Bolstered by its patented High Throughput Virtual Slit (HTVS™) technology, Tornado’s Raman spectrometers including HyperFlux™ ProPlus and PGR deliver significantly enhanced photon collection power. HTVS™ eliminates the physical slit of a conventional spectrometer and avoids signal losses while maintaining high spectral resolution, allowing for faster measurements and lower detection limits. 
  • Tornado’s non-destructive, real-time measurement solutions offer numerous benefits for established analytical practice and facilitate broader application of Raman methods for pharmaceutical, petrochemical, biotech, and other applications. Bolstered by its patented High Throughput Virtual Slit (HTVS™) technology, Tornado’s HyperFlux™ ProPlus and PGR 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 system allows 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.

Tornado’s headquarters is located in Toronto, Canada, housing sales and marketing, engineering, technical support, and operations. With a strong commitment to providing the best possible support, Tornado Spectral Systems has assembled an elite network of experienced distributors worldwide for their ability to demonstrate the unique value of our chemical analysis solutions.


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.
