Beginning in 2006, an engineer team started the development of a revolutionary online analyzing system to replace the conventionally method of analyzers with radioactive sources or neutron generators. SpectraFlow combines all advantages of a fast, reliable online measurement with a safe, environmental friendly and economical hardware technology by using the Near Infra Red (NIR) technology.
That brings significant advantages to the end user, as SpectraFlow is completely free of any permits or licences, maintenance is safe and easy and the analyzer can be used for industries conventional PGNAAs or CNAs can’t be used.
The Near Infra Red Technology (NIR) describes the spectral range of electromagnetic waves just below visible light. The analysis uses the fact that Near Infra Red excites molecular oscillation, which are unique for each molecule. These excitations leave a specific molecular footprint in the reflected Near Infra Red spectra. The heart of the analyzer is a Fourier Transform Infrared (FTIR) spectrometer. The SpectraFlow Analyzer measures the mineralogical and chemical concentrations of the raw material.
SpectraFlow Analytics Ltd provides online measurement solutions for all mineral industries, with multiple installations in the cement, iron ore, gold, platinum, copper, potash, coal and bauxite industry. Feasibility studies have shown, that for phosphate, nickel and zinc applications SpectraFlow also deliver accurate measurement results.
The SpectraFlow Analyzer portfolio encompasses online measurement applications mounted over conveyor belts and of raw materials processed in airslides.
The current installed base is more than 60 analyzers in 28 countries across the globe.
