Managing raw material quality control in 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.

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.

Ensure raw material quality control with Thermo Scientific conveyor belt scale systems

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?
