Thermo Fisher Scientific Launches New Online Analyzer for Cement Manufacturers

CB Omni System Provides Minute-by-Minute Composition Analysis of Raw Materials

Charleston, SC and San Diego, CA - IEEE-IASIPCA Cement lndustry Technical Conference - (April 29, 2007) - Thermo Fisher Scientific Inc., the world leader in serving science, today introduced the Thermo Scientific CB Omni PGNAA analyzer, the latest in Thermo Fisher Scientific's line of CrossBelt analyzers. The CB Omni provides minute-by-minute composition analysis of raw materials in the cement manufacturing process.

Specifically designed to rapidly analyze and provide feedback on the quality of raw materials, the Thermo Scientific CB Omni helps cement manufacturers achieve consistent stockpile and raw mix chemistry, improving kiln efficiency and minimizing production costs. "Over the years, the cement industry has increasingly adopted CrossBelt online analysis systems to augment and improve upon conventional offline analysis methods that involve sampling and transporting materials to a laboratory for analysis. Conventional techniques can involve sample error and lengthy feedback on quality information. The CB Omni not only enables manufacturers to analyze 100% of their materials on the line, but allows them to do so without significant modifications to the existing conveyor line; integration is easier and less costly than ever before," said Jon Culbertson, global commercial director for Thermo Fisher Scientific.

Thermo Fisher Scientific developed the CB Omni following its acquisition of Analyser Systems (ASYS). Combining the best technologies from both organizations, the analyzer offers state-of-the-art electronics designed specifically for PGNAA analysis using the latest techniques for pulse analysis and "pulse pile up rejection." The flexible, modular design of the product lets customers meet a variety of analytical performance requirements.

"As the global cement market becomes more and more competitive, cost efficiencies and product quality are more critical than ever to cement manufacturers," continued Jon Culbertson. "Equally important is a vendor's reputation for innovation. By employing three of the world's top PGNAA scientists and fostering numerous strategic partnerships, Thermo Fisher Scientific remains on the cutting edge of analysis technology, delivering valuable cost savings and ground-breaking products like the CB Omni to our customers."

Benefits of the Thermo Scientific CB Omni PGNAA analyzer include:

Modular, compact, lightweight design for space limitations and easy installation - can be mounted on existing conveyor belt without having to cut the truss

Easy configuration to accommodate a variety of detector combinations - ability to tailor the system's performance to a specific application's needs

Enhanced analytical performance and increased detection efficiency

Optional capability to wirelessly transmit data to remote terminals and mobile stations

Unmatched worldwide service and support network backed by Thermo Fisher Scientific
Thermo Fisher Scientific's CB Omni system complements the company's x-ray analysis products for cement quality control labs and its Laboratory Information Management Software (LIMS). Thermo Fisher Scientific also offers a full suite of solutions, including gas analyzers, material handling equipment, safety instruments and products designed especially for workflows in cement research labs.
