REAL-TIME ELEMENTAL ANALYZER
Free your production from the cost and control constraints of slow, labor-intensive, manual sampling with the revolutionary EA-2000 analyzer.
The DTE EA-2000 is a first-in-industry automated elemental analyzer, designed to empower aluminum production with live data, direct from liquid metal.
Placed at key locations within the casthouse, the EA-2000 delivers immediate and precise trace impurity information, from a single, reference quality measurement.
Continuous measurement is a key enabler for process automation and Industry 4.0 .
Immediate and accurate elemental analysis
The EA-2000 applies proprietary and patent pending improvements to industry standard laser-induced break- down spectroscopy (LIBS) to solve the challenge of continuously performing immediate and accurate elemental analysis directly from the high temperature liquid metal surface.
Improved process control
The EA-2000 offers a breakthrough, automated process. It determines elemental concentration with a single measurement, directly from the molten aluminum or alloy, providing faster results and the possibility of real-time, high-frequency monitoring of impurity concentrations.
By determining composition directly from homogeneous liquid, with frequent readings possible, the EA-2000 provides class-leading performance that greatly exceeds manual sampling.
Comprehensive, real-time overview
Real-time data capture is the key to full automation and machine learning driven robotic process optimization.
Real-time process feedback offers substantial opportunities, including improved production efficiency, energy and process cost savings from faster, more frequent measurements and improved operator safety through limiting the need for human intervention.
