Perform real-time quality control for process optimization. The Thermo Scientific™ CB Omni™ Fusion Online Elemental Analyzer provides high frequency online elemental analysis of an entire raw material process stream using Prompt Gamma Neutron Activation Analysis (PGNAA) or Pulsed Fast Thermal Neutron Activation (PFTNA). The CB Omni Fusion delivers consistent material quality improves process efficiency and minimizes production costs in a variety of different process and mining operations: Limestone, Copper, Iron Ore, Nickel, Phosphate, Cement Production, Iron Ore Sintering and more.
The CB Omni Fusion analyzer uses either PGNAA or PFTNA, depending on the excitation source selected, to continuously measure in real time the elemental composition of an entire raw material stream being carried on a conveyor belt without touching the materials, and without the errors and costs associated with material sampling for off-line laboratory analysis.
Thermo Scientific™ Omni View software provides the unique and powerful interface for the CB Omni Fusion. This state-of-the-art software processes, displays and archives data while at the same time tracks and monitors the health of the instrument. Omni View is highly configurable and allows users to get the most from their online analysis instrument. What is more, Omni View is capable of running on any number of remote workstations that are on the same network as the main, CB Omni Fusion, operator console.

The CB Omni Fusion is a powerful process optimization tool that can be used in applications such as:
Mine Grade Control & Optimization
Material Sorting and Blending
When coupled with optional automated process control software from Thermo Fisher Scientific, such as RAMOS (Raw Mix Optimization Software) or PREBOS (PreBlending Optimization Software), the CB Omni Fusion becomes a fully-featured automated control tool. RAMOS and PREBOS use the high frequency analysis provided by the CB Omni Fusion to automatically control raw material feeds to optimize blend proportioning.
Another unique and optional software package designed for the CB Omni Fusion is Thermo Fisher Scientific’s AccuLink. AccuLink is an automated calibration tool and statistical analysis software package that allows the CB Omni Fusion to be continually aligned with a laboratory X-Ray Fluorescence instrument.
