This in turn leads to better ash fusion determination and more accurate baseto-acid ratio estimation. Progression is anything but a novice to these technologies. They have been successfully supplying the petrochemical market with MR technology for more than 20 years. In 2004, the company began working with some of the world's most knowledgeable LIBS experts in the fields of space exploration, mining and materials handling and government labs. In that same year, Progression first tested a commercial LIBS analyzer on an over-the-belt configuration within the minerals industry and today has multiple MR systems operating within the phosphate industry. The years of real-world applications experience in the mining industry contributed significantly in the development and design of the Titan CCA. The Titan CCA combines both technologies in a single instrument, with adjacent analysis modules for MR and LIBS (See Figure 4). Figure 6b: Titan CCA calorific value performance.
