:: Thermo Fisher Scientific Brings Online Analysis Expertise to Minerals Industry

Thermo Fisher Scientific Inc., has introduced the Thermo Scientific CB Omni analyzer for the minerals processing industry, the latest in Thermo Fisher Scientificís line of cross-belt analyzers. Building on the success of the companyís solution for the cement industry, the CB Omni can be incorporated into a new or existing plant to supply minute-by-minute composition analysis of bulk materials.

Specifically designed to rapidly analyze and monitor the composition of feed, intermediate and final bulk materials online, the Thermo Scientific CB Omni has the ability to measure most base metals and impurities. The analyzerís unique software components allow users to sort materials and track the composition of stockpiles, improving efficiency and increasing product quality control. The CB Omniís improved modular design has removed the need for heavy lifting equipment, reducing the cost of installation.

ďRising costs and the push for process optimization make it more important for all producers to fully understand the composition of bulk materials in order to maximize returns. Whether theyíre extracting minerals or controlling quality, the Thermo Scientific CB Omni gives users unparalleled insight into raw materials and reduces the need for costly and complex mechanical sampling and slow laboratory analyses," said Tim Sennett, global minerals sales manager for Thermo Fisher Scientific.

The CB Omni enables producers to analyze 100% of their materials online, and it allows them to do so without significant modifications to the existing conveyor line. In addition, the flexible, modular design of the product lets customers meet a variety of analytical performance requirements.

Benefits of the Thermo Scientific CB Omni analyzer include

  • Easy, low cost installation due to the improved modular design that does not require the existing structure to be cut.
  • Easy configuration to accommodate a variety of detector combinations - ability to tailor the systemís performance to a specific applicationís needs
  • Enhanced analytical performance and increased detection efficiency
  • Variable tunnel height accommodates various ore and concentrate combinations
  • Flexible connectivity enables connection to plantís existing IT system
