We are analytical experts with thorough working knowledge of principles and techniques of analytical chemistry testing and properties of matter. Our expertise is in instrumental and wet chemical (WCh) analysis of materials for mining and metallurgical process control. Strong background in raw materials, products (bauxite to Al-alloys, iron ore to Fe-alloys, clinker, cement) and processes of the aluminum, iron & steel and cement industries is our asset. We supply solutions to the minerals, metals and cement industries. 

We design our products and solutions with you in mind. 



Our specialized yet simple to use software is designed for automatic quantitative mineralogical analysis of  bauxite and cement.



Bauxite Quantitative Mineralogical Analysis

BauxQ - modern and cost-effective software for automatic quantitative mineralogical analysis of bauxite.

BauxQ integrates a user-friendly interface with a complex mathematical modeling platform.

BauxQ uses the elemental composition (obtained by XRF or ICP) and loss of mass on ignition to accurately calculate concentration of bauxite major and minor mineralogical phases. 

BauxQ does not require laboratory calibration and is independent from WCh and XRD analyses.

Given the speed of its analysis, it is particularly useful for assessing the commercial potential of new deposits.

Given its accuracy, it greatly facilities mine exploration, bauxite trade and Bayer plant operation.

Clinker and Portland Cement Quantitative Mineralogical Analysis

CemQuant -software that quantifies major and minor phases of clinker and Portland cement, including those associated with alkali elements, which are difficult  to quantify with other methods.

CemQuant further pushes the envelope of innovation with its capacity to determine the concentrations of gypsum, bassanite and anhydrite.  

CemQuant deals efficiently with samples with amorphous content. 

of gypsum, bassanite and anhydrite.  

CemQuant will even deal very efficiently with samples with amorphous content. This in itself is a true innovation.
