What Our Customers Say

Shortens the analysis process and increases the number of analyses performed, providing various opportunities.
Environmental and Engineering Manager
Controlling any process at peak efficiency requires accurate, real-time measurements. This has always been a challenge in our industry due to the nature of the process. The traditional method of sampling and analyzing has an inherit time-lag. I believe the solution DTE has developed for real-time metal analysis could be the future standard in the aluminum industry.
Reduction Technical Manager
We see much potential in getting real-time chemical composition analysis from our process, not only in terms of time-saving and higher productivity but also in terms of safety for our employees.
