The Metals edition of Aeris is your companion for optimizing your steel making process. It’s fully automatable and can be easily incorporated in industrial production control. The instrument comprises proven technologies that have previously on been included with PANalytical’s high-end systems. As a result, data quality and speed of analysis delivered by Aeris have so far only been realized on full-power systems. Aeris only needs a single-phase power outlet, fits well in any lab and can be used by virtually everyone.
The Aeris Metals edition is developed for reliable phase information of raw, intermediate and by-products during metals production. The instrument is configured for easy and flexible analysis of iron ores, sinter, direct reduced iron and retained austenite. And Aeris is fast: you can get your mineralogical information in 5 minutes.
