Raw Materials Quality Control for Steel Manufacturing
Improve raw material quality for more consistent product
Precise feeding of process materials is critical to maintaining product quality, but measuring and ensuring steel raw material quality control can be challenging. We offer belt scales with a range of conveyor speeds and levels of accuracy. Our weighbelt feeders provide a consistent flow for blending or batching, from light materials at low feed rates to heavy-duty loads requiring faster feeds. Our online elemental analyzer helps monitor and control sintering process fluctuations, inhomogeneous mixtures, and other parameters that affect productivity, physical and metallurgical quality, and raw material consumption and costs.
Gain significant economic benefits for the iron ore sintering process and the blast furnace with the Thermo Scientific CB Omni Fusion Online Elemental Analyzer configured for the sinter feed application. Chemical composition is one of the most important parameters for the efficiency of the sinter process. The CB Omni analyzer for sinter measures sinter feed chemistry on-line and provides minute by minute, reliable chemical analysis data to enable control of basicity in real time.
Monitor your conveyor belt scale feed with high accuracy even in the most demanding industrial applications with Thermo Scientific Ramsey Conveyor Belt Scale Systems. Ramsey belt scale systems monitor steel 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.
Optimize blast furnace operation with steel raw material quality control using Thermo Scientific MOLA Moisure Online Analyzers. Designed for harsh industrial applications, these rugged instruments use patented neutron backscatter, pulse mode, ion chamber technology to non-intrusively measure the moisture content in metallurgical grade coke and/or iron ore pellets.

The CB Omni analyzer uses Prompt Gamma Neutron Activation Analysis (PGNAA) or Pulsed Fast Thermal Neutron Activation (PFTNA) to determine elemental concentration in bulk materials. The method is deeply penetrative and measures through many centimeters of material making it an ideal technology for real-time elemental analysis of bulk materials on conveyor belts.
To learn more about PGNAA and PFTNA, visit the PGNAA and PFTNA Technology page.
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 for bulk material handling. How do you know which one is right for your application?
