New online elemental analyser delivers real-time results

Cement manufacturers that require an easy-to-use quality control solution that delivers rapid analyses of a wide range of materials can now rely on a new online elemental analyser designed to provide real-time, accurate results.

The Thermo Scientific CB Omni Fusion analyser is designed to meet the demands and challenges of cement plant operators and quality control personnel seeking efficient analytical methods to produce and control the quality of cement products. With this unique system, users can choose either an electrically-driven neutron generator or an isotope, Californium (252Cf), as the analyser’s excitation source. This enables them to continuously measure the elemental composition of the entire raw material stream carried on a conveyor belt.

The analyser features Omni View, a new software interface suite. It is flexible and highly configurable, allowing users to set up the analyser to best match their process requirements. The advanced software can run on an unlimited number of workstations. Providing greater precision and repeatability than previous generations of the instrument, the CB Omni Fusion analyser is easy to install, use and maintain. This makes it accessible to all plant personnel who require high sensitivity and real-time analysis.

“Cement manufacturers are under increased pressure to maximise resources and reduce costs,” said Kevin Gordon, global marketing manager for prompt gamma neutron activation analysis for Thermo Fisher Scientific. “We’ve developed the CB Omni Fusion with flexibility in mind. Quality control managers and operators can gather immediate results from raw material analysis to save time, money and energy, and they can customise the instrument to work best for them.”

Additional benefits of the Thermo Scientific CB Omni Fusion analyser include:

  • AutoDiagnostics software to track system health and operational conditions.
  • Modular design for ease of installation on existing conveyor trusses.
  • One to four large volume detectors and variable tunnel heights to accommodate process conditions.

The Thermo Scientific CB Omni Fusion analyser, which can also be used for elemental analysis in the sinter ore, scrap steel and mineral production processes, builds upon the family of Thermo Scientific CB Omni analysers, including the CB Omni and CB Omni Flex.
