Thermo Scientific™ SamStat-30 provides periodic composite samples of a full slurry stream for metallurgical accounting. The SamStat-30 uses a series of tanks featuring fixed and cross cutters and a variable speed mixer to produce a representative sample. A variety of models and options are available to fulfill your sampling requirements, including continuous sampling for an online analyzer, sampling for particle size analysis, outlet distribution and screening of oversized particles. These systems enable improvements in accountability, process efficiency and profitability.
When real-time knowledge of coal quality is critical, coal-fired power plants and coal producers can rely on the Thermo Scientific™ CQM FLEX (Coal Quality Manager FLEX) Analyzer. The CQM Flex can incorporate an electrically-driven neutron generator, or Californium (252Cf) as its source of neutrons to meet the needs of various application requirements. The CQM FLEX measures and reports levels of sulfur, moisture, total ash, calorific value, ash elemental concentration, and other critical parameters required by both coal consumers and producers to maximize the use of coal resources and reduce pollutants.
Coal mines must meet a variety of customer specifications for different coal qualities.The Thermo Scientific™ ECA-3 Elemental Crossbelt Analyzer provides real-time quality analysis of critical process streams to facilitate sorting, blending and out-of-seam dilution control. Productivity is improved in pit management, preparation plants and inventory management.The ECA-3 Analyzer is ideal for raw coal, plant feed, clean coal and blended coal applications. Coal fired power plants benefit by reducing the use of higher, more expensive quality coals while increasing boiler efficiency.
Thermo Scientific™ Gravity Sampler is a simple, cost-effective alternative to produce a sample for a Multi-Stream Analyzer. The Thermo Scientific Gravity Sampler is a cost effective altenative to produce a continuous sample for elemental analysis.
The Thermo Scientific™ CB Omni™ Agile Online Elemental Analyzer provides unprecedented configuration flexibility that provides options to suit various applications. CB Omni Agile offers not only enhanced configurability through its modern modular industrial design to suit your application, but a lighter, easier to install analyzer, with the same industry leading performance that you have come to expect.
The CB Omni Agile is a powerful process optimization tool that can be used in applications such as:
- Mine Grade Control
- Material Sorting
- Material Blending
- Stockpile Control
Satisfy customer specifications for high quality coal blends while achieving more cost-effective, efficient operations . The Thermo Scientific™ COBOS Coal Blend Optimization System controls coal sorting and coal blending equipment with software that continuously monitors coal quality. The system blends up to six coal sources to make a "recipe" consisting of up to five quality parameters, such as ash, sulfur, moisture or even ash oxides or ratios of ash oxides. Blend recipes can be predefined for different quality targets and priorities while using fewer high cost or scarce coal resources.
Extend the life of your PGNAA online analyzer with a Thermo Scientific™ CB Omni-R Upgrade. This cost-effective package provides a refurbished and retrofitted system to bring aging online cross belt analyzers up to modern technology standards. Existing shielding and structural components are used as installed to minimize costs, while all electronics, software, computer hardware, and detector systems are replaced. All CB Omni-R upgrades include automatic belt load compensation (ABLC) that ensures analyzer accuracy over a wide range of real-time variable flow rates and belt loads.
Achieve excellent process control and save fuel in your cement plant with both chemical and phase analysis in one simple operation. The Thermo Scientific™ ARL™ 9900 Total Cement Analyzer combines X-Ray Fluorescence (XRF) and X-Ray Diffraction (XRD) technologies for a better and more complete characterization of any given crystalline sample. Various compounds can be controlled like quartz in raw meal, hot meal, free lime in clinker, clinker phases, additions in cement, e.g. limestone, GBFS or pozzolan or even clinker content in cement. Clinker phase analysis ensures consistent clinker quality, which is the key to high-performance concrete.
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.
Achieve the best online accuracy possible with innovative software that provides continuous comparisons with the lab and timely, automatic calibrations. The Thermo Scientific™ AccuLINK Software Package links two leading cement products - the Thermo Scientific™ ARL™ series of XRF laboratory analyzers and the Thermo Scientific™ CB Omni family of online PGNAA elemental cement analyzers so you can compare data from both systems to ensure peak operational efficiency.
