Applications - Metals Production

Basic Oxygen Process (BOP)

Process mass spectrometry has been used for decades to improve the Basic Oxygen Process (BOP) and successfully produce high quality stainless steel. Process Engineers rely on the BOP to calculate and control the amount of carbon that remains in the liquid metal batch. The BOP uses oxygen to burn excess carbon, converting it to carbon monoxide and carbon dioxide. The percentage of eliminated carbon is calculated using measured concentrations of the carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide and the gas flow rates. Since the gas flows extremely fast, calculations need to be made as quickly as possible.

Extrel’s MAX300-IG™ Industrial Gas Analyzer has the speed and precision to deliver the required data measuring the full stream composition of the exhaust gas stream within 1.5 seconds.

For nearly 35 years, Extrel has produced process mass spectrometers for industrial applications with the reliability and performance needed for demanding applications in the toughest environments.
