In metal production, such as in steel plants, a wide range of process steps and products must be carefully monitored to ensure the complex and expensive production runs smoothly.
In a steel plant, information from electric arc furnaces (EAF), ladle metallurgy furnaces (LMF), and the baghouse may be gathered through samples analyzed from these stages; raw materials and final products must be checked for product quality purposes.
The environment in many metal producing facilities is demanding for any analytical equipment. To ensure the S2 PUMA Series 2 is up for the job, the instrument combines performing analytical components with a rugged design.
High instrument uptime is achieved by SampleCare™: Several measures protect vital system components, such as the DustShield™ which prevents contamination of the detector by solid particles and liquid spills. For ease-of use, the instrument can be configured with a touchscreen. The intuitive TouchControl™ software then allows workers to operate the instrument with only minimal training.
