Cement, Coal, Minerals

Get reliable, accurate, cost-effective elemental analysis of up to 12 slurry streams with the Thermo Scientific™ MSA-330 Multi-Stream Slurry XRF Analyzer. Each stream is kept in a separate analysis zone, ensuring no cross-contamination. With no multiplexer required, the MSA analyzer has low head loss, saving elevation in the plant which can lead to significant savings in engineering and installation. The information provided by the MSA analyzer allows plant operators to follow process trends in real time and make manual or automated changes to optimize the process.

Key Features and Benefits

  • Measures 3 to 12 slurry streams
  • XRF multi-element probe measures up to 20 elements and % solids
  • Metallurgical accounting is possible when used with the Thermo Scientific SamStat-30C
  • Cross-cut sampler produces sapmles for calibration and process control
  • Digital signal processing
  • Fast assay updates
  • Probe can be programmed to analyze streams in a predefined pattern
  • Can handle the full flow of some process streams
  • Each stream is kept in its own analysis zone, ensuring no contamination
  • No multiplexer or de-multiplexer required, saving head space in the plant
  • Lowest hydraulic head loss of any multi-stream analyser on the market
  • Process trends can be followed in real time, facilitating manual or automated changes for optimization


  • 3 to 12 Streams
  • Measuring more than 12 streams results in extended analysis time and is not recommended
