Trade Online Analysis (OLA)
SGS is a leading global supplier of innovative and technologically advanced sampling, sorting and blending services.
Our technical team can install and provide complete support services for your new or existing On-Line Analysis (OLA) system. We can provide the accuracy you need to run your facility at maximum efficiency.
Real Time Analysis refers to the ability to acquire “just in time” compositional data and also the ability to act on that data immediately to improve sorting efficiency and thus profitability. Real Time Analysis combines the capabilities of online analyzers, mechanical sampling systems and advanced computer technology to allow you to monitor and correct loading or blending while these activities are in progress.
Real Time Analysis is made possible by On-Line Analysis (OLA) systems. These systems allow mining operations, smelters, loading facilities, coal preparation plants and thermal power generators to monitor, control and optimize their loading, product sorting and blending processes during operation. OLA can indicate when modifications must be made that are beneficial to operations. This can have a substantial impact on your facility’s efficiency and overall financial bottom line.
By using SGS’s Real Time Analysis, our technical expertise can provide:
- System evaluation, engineering and project management
- Continuous surveillance
Most sizeable operations that mine, process or use significant amounts of commodities such as coal, cement, iron ore, copper, nickel and fertilizers can benefit from using on-line analysis and real time measurement systems. In addition, this technology can be used to analyze for the following elements:
The process involved in providing on-line analysis is complex and a full economic evaluation requires experienced engineers. SGS offers you trusted world-class technical expertise and experience.
