The fully-automated control of aluminum smelting and processing has been held back by the challenge of real-time elemental analysis of the metal in its liquid state.
DTE solves this problem.
Our flagship EA-2000 and EA-2500 instruments are first-in-industry fully automated elemental analyzers, generating real-time data, direct from liquid metal. Operating at key locations within the casthouse, they deliver immediate, reference quality trace impurity information.
FROM FULL AUTOMATION
Automation eliminates the need for manual sampling, increasing quality and reducing process lag time
In situ analysis of homogeneous liquid metal offers greater accuracy than possible with solid sampling
WITH REAL-TIME DATA
In-line analysis enabling real-time control
From sampling to read-out in less than 60 seconds for enhanced process control and decision support
ENHANCE WORKER SAFETY
AND IMPROVE ACCURACY
Reduce operator risk of exposure to liquid metal during sampling - almost one fifth of injuries are burns caused by contact with hot molten metal
~70% of errors to arise from the manual nature of sampling today, which instrument accuracy cannot correct for
With its headquarters in Iceland, DTE is focused on next-generation industrial metal production process control, towards Industry 4.0.
We address the high unmet need to complement and replace current slow, expensive and manual methods for process and quality control with real-time, in-line analysis of trace materials.
Our team combines decades of engineering experience and process expertise in the aluminum industry.
