Disruptions to the melting process can quickly result in increasing costs and decreasing outputs, even if new processes and technologies in steel making are reducing energy costs. The effects of failing equipment can result in days of delays, particularly if a company is reliant on a single optical emission spectrometer (OES) for production control.
Don’t Let Analytical Equipment Become a Bottleneck
Having a high-quality instrument as a backup ensures that productivity is not lost even where the regular instrument is unavailable for some time. While this seems obvious from an operational standpoint, the costs involved can commonly be seen as an issue.
Hitachi High-Tech’s OES instruments solve this challenge by providing metal and steel production companies the reliability and performance they need at a cost effective price.
The FOUNDRY-MASTER Smart and FM EXPERT are the ideal additions to any metal production operation, performing with great accuracy without the expense of a high-end OES instrument.
Reasons You Need a Backup
Most companies are reliant upon a large photo tube detector equipped OES as their main metal analysis instruments and are unsure whether to adopt smaller devices with charge-coupled device (CCD) technology into their operations.
There are several reasons for this. Firstly, smaller, but still efficient, instruments like the FOUNDRY-MASTER Smart and FM EXPERT have just become available in the past few years.
Secondly, most operators still think that smaller devices cannot match the 20 year life span of the bigger photo tube devices. While it is certainly true that in the past, CCD devices could only promise a lifetime of 10 years, more recent devices like the FOUNDRY-MASTER Smart and FM EXPERT are manufactured to be reliable and rugged long-term investments that create value through their lifecycle.
