DTE is featured in January/February 2021 Issue of International ALUMINIUM Journal

REYKJAVIK, ICELAND – March 1, 2021 – DT Equipment ehf. (“DTE”) (www.dtequipment.com), the market leader in real-time intelligence from liquid metals, is pleased to announce the signature of a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Rio Tinto ISAL.

DTE, a leader in real-time business and operational intelligence from liquid metals, has

brought to the market a solution that combines real-time chemical composition analysis of liquid metals with an ML-based cloud platform, the foundation of a metals production eco-system. DTE’s solution maximizes value, operation efficiency, sustainability and safety by optimizing the vertical functional operations along the complete horizontal value chain.

The value that the solution brings to the metals industry is vast and goes from point value

– value-focused in a particular part of the process – to an all-across optimization, from suppliers to customers, from the plant floor to the trading desks. We summarize it as ‘faster, better products to market’.

The benefits are the following:

  • Having more meaningful and actionable data, immediately available, from the core element in the process – in this case, the flowing product being manufactured: molten aluminium – in the form of intelligent information not only improves the decision-making process but also increases a company’s valuation considering that data is a new asset class.
  • There is an overall increase in the ‘return on capital employed’ driven by improved production planning – defined by the finished product being demanded and therefore manufactured – and the knowledge of the product status along the value chain.
  • Real-time, frequent, chemical composition analysis from liquid metal provides detailed information about the melt dynamics which enables fine-tuning of the alloying process.
  • Increasing the chemical composition analysis frequency (faster, in more points along the value chain) increases the availability, quality and traceability of the manufactured product.
  • Greenhouse gas emissions and energy consumption are reduced because processes governed by time, volume or experience due to the limitations of the current chemical composition analysis technology will be controlled by real-time information to be controlled; an example of this is the treatment of alloys in the furnaces.
  • More, faster and more accurate data offers the possibility to generate better predictiveinsights and therefore execute predictive maintenance, avoiding significant process and safety challenges. An example is the case of sudden electrolysis pot bursts.
  • The cost of analyzing chemical composition (people, associated assets, consumablesand others) decrease, considering the apparent differences of analyzing liquid metal in-situ versus analyzing a solid in a remote or nearby laboratory.
  • Safety is increased as operators no longer have to sample and cast liquid metal and do not have to walk through the plant to carry samples to the labs.

DTE’s intelligence from liquid metals solution includes three major components:

    • Connected, real-time elemental analysis.
    • A metals production eco-system that enables a network effect, whose engine is DTE’s ML-based cloud platform.
    • A comprehensive set of digital elemental analysis services, including field, change management and business optimization services, among others.

DTE is featured in International ALUMINIUM Journal

DTE is featured in the December 2018 edition of International ALUMINIUM Journal, the longest established professional journal for the aluminum industry and distributed worldwide, covering all facets of the aluminum value chain.

Aluminium production is a complex process in which aluminium is obtained by fused-salt electrolysis and processed in subsequent process steps. Throughout this process the aluminium is sampled for elemental analysis to determine further processing requirements to produce metal of appropriate purity and composition. At present, sampling is performed manually by withdrawing a ladle of molten metal, allowing it to cool and then transferring the cast sample to an on-site laboratory. This is repeated many times per day – a laborious and expensive process that delays the feed-back loop of production control information, leading to inaccuracy and inefficiency.

DTE’s element analyzer uses laser induced breakdown spectroscopy (LIBS) to provide an accurate real-time chemical analysis of the main elemental contaminants present in the molten aluminium, without contacting the surface of the metal. No manual handling or laboratory measurements are required. Limit of detection is well within working range for elemental analysis in the aluminium industry and error with respect to reference is unprecedented for in situ analysis.
