Welcome to scantech

Scantech uses our experience and proven technologies to monitor and control bulk material applications; from blending and grading, to sorting and optimising processes in real time. We have successfully installed advanced on-line analysers in more than 1,000 applications worldwide, more than any other company.  As a result, by choosing Scantech analysers you achieve four important outcomes:

  • First, you can optimize plant operations using real time process control.
  • Second, you eliminate much of the cost for routine sampling and laboratory analyses required in the course of running your plant.
  • And third, your total cost of operations goes down due to improved management of raw material and process control. Many of our customers repay their investment in the analyser in less than one year.
  • Finally, you are in full compliance with all local and international regulations.

Online analysis can reduce capex and will certainly reduce opex. The results from our analysers are so crucial to a plant’s successful operation, that we are not allowed to promote many of our installations as clients do not want us to reveal their competitive advantage!

We offer money back performance guarantees. Scantech analysers utilize the latest technology, including digital electronics, and we support our analysers with a two year warranty and a service department that is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

"When commodity prices were strong and rising, mining companies could afford minor inefficiencies in their plants. That is rarely the case in these days of lower-grade deposits, lower metal prices and economic pressure from every direction. “We have to do better with lower costs,” said Philip Thwaites, manager of process control for XPS Consulting & Testwork Services. “If you’re not efficient, you’re not going to be around. And our industry can be a lot more efficient.” According to Thwaites, measurement is the cornerstone of control and efficiency. “If you have a poor measurement, or no measurement, you can’t do good control,” he explained. But this is changing. More and more mining companies are conscious of improved measurements and endorsing control, automation and next-generation technologies. What is more, there has been significant progress in automated instruments recently. These measure crucial parameters in the processing circuit and equipment to allow operators to monitor and adjust process control as needed."
