Extend the life of the quarry
The first step in the cement process is the recovery of the limestone and sometimes the extraction of clay. When unwanted elements reduce the mineable areas of the quarry, the CB Omni Fusion Online Elemental Analyzer, using PGNAA technology, can monitor material chemistry in real time and allow for immediate adjustments. Other Thermo Scientific solutions include Ramsey Belt Scale Systems to measure the amount of materials that is being mined, and the Oretronic Tramp Metal Detectors that monitor for unwanted metals in the materials. Thermo Scientific handheld XRF analyzers can quickly analyze samples from the quarry.

Achieve consistent stockpile and raw mix chemistry and improved kiln efficiency. The Thermo Scientific CB Omni Fusion Online Elemental Analyzer continuously analyzes the chemical composition of the entire raw material stream being carried on a conveyor belt using Prompt Gamma Neutron Activation Analysis (PGNAA) or Pulsed Fast Thermal Neutron Activation (PFTNA).
Monitor raw material feed to crushers, mills, screens, preparation plants, and coal-fired power plants to help ensure precise feeding of process materials and maintain product quality. Thermo Scientific Ramsey conveyor belt scales provide vital information for the effective management and efficient operation of cement raw material handling.
Reduce material waste, help maintain blend consistency, increase profits, and meet customer specifications. Thermo Scientific weighbelt feeders are used in cement plants to provide a consistent feed of raw materials to maintain their desired proportions in the raw mix, which helps reduce material waste and help maintain blend consistency.
Protect expensive crushers, conveyors and other process equipment from damage by tramp metal. Thermo Scientific Ramsey Oretronic IV Tramp Metal Detectors detect all types of metallic scrap that conventional metal detectors may miss.
Get on-the-spot elemental analysis of quarry samples. Thermo Scientific Niton handheld XRF analyzers can also determine whether the refractory anchors are of the required grade of steel. Analysis can be carried out at the time of material receipt to reduce the chance of material mismatches during procurement.
Belt conveyer scales are an important part of a mining operation’s bulk material handling system. A belt scale system monitors production output and inventory, or regulates product loadout, while providing vital information for the effective management and efficient operation of your business. There are many options to consider when selecting a belt scale system. How do you know which one is right for your application?
