ANALYTICAL INSTRUMENTATION & WATER QUALITY SOLUTIONS FOR Steel and Metal Production

Reliable Gas and Water Analysis Technologies for Efficiency, Quality, and Safety

The steel and metal production industry are diverse and regulated industries.  It is of central importance for the modern global economy as the need for metal grows.  Our analytical technologies and solutions will help you make better process control adjustments, increase product quality, improve reliability, and reduce risks to your plant, personnel, and the environment.  Our gas analysis solutions for chemical processing help increase product quality, improve reliability, and reduce risks to your plant, personnel, and the environment. 

The Steel Industry Uses Billions of Gallons of Water & Process Water Quality Analyzers Matter

From water sampling and analysis to product loss monitoring and quality control, our LAR water quality analysis solutions can meet your water analytical challenges regarding process control and effective water management in chemical industries.  Our water analyzers can measure inadequate water management in your plant operations as well as leakages and equipment failures caused by contamination of process water.  We will work with you to design, manufacture and deliver the best solution for chemical manufacturing facility.

Steel production produces large amounts of wastewater from the coking process.  This wastewater is highly toxic and contains a number of carcinogenic organic compounds as well as cyanide, sulfides, ammonium and ammonia.  Also, steel production requires water remediation and water recovery. Water recovery involves cooling and desalinating water to control salt concentration in the circulation systems and decreases consumption and discharge of fresh water while improving steel quality.  Managing the water quality across this process matters.

Process Mass Spectrometers in Iron and Steel Manufacturing

Metal production and processing applications such as Basic Oxygen Process (BOP), Blast Furnace analysis, Gas Mixing stations, Vacuum Oxygen Decarburization (VOD) batch processing, Heat Treating processes and Metal Coating processes benefit from the accuracy and speed of online process analyzers. Our Extrel MAX300-RTG™ Industrial Process Mass Spectrometer are in use in steel production and aluminum processing plants worldwide.  Our mas specs provide real-time fast analysis of gas compositions at multiple points, provide precise air control, optimizing ore reduction, and allows the user to calculate and control the amount of carbon remaining in a product and to calculate the rate of decarburization and identify the endpoint of the VOD processes.

We also provide turnkey Mass Spectrometer Systems built upon our Extrel quadrupole mass spectrometer technology specifically for the chemical industry.   Our mass spec systems include a full quadrupole mass spectrometer system, equipped with complete software, sampling system, and sampling orifice(s). The low noise right angle design can provide energy analysis as well as mass analysis.  Process mass spectrometry improves product quality and efficiency due to its fast, accurate, comprehensive gas composition analysis.

Moisture Control and Oxygen Monitoring

For dew point control, our COSA Xentaur HTF sensor technology can be trusted where other methods have routinely failed. The stability, accuracy and life expectancy of HTF sensors have set new a standard in the industry. 

Our Alpha Omega Instruments’ oxygen monitors have been serving the chemical market for over 25 years, the oxygen deficiency monitoring products and trace oxygen analyzers and transmitters.
