The MOSS optical emission spectroscopy system is a versatile tool capable of analyzing over 30 elements, including the vital element Nitrogen. In the context of alloy steels, the MOSS system performs precise analyses of elements such as Carbon (C), Sulphur (S), Phosphorous (P), and Nitrogen (N) down to concentrations as low as 50 ppm. Moreover, it extends its capabilities to elements like Boron (B), providing accurate measurements down to an impressive 5 ppm. Remarkably, the MOSS system offers this exceptional functionality at half the cost of comparable models from other sources, making it an extremely cost-effective solution.

This affordability renders the MOSS system a perfect fit for various industrial applications, including rolling mills, foundries, casting units, and TMT units, among others. Large plants seeking reliable backup units for different workshops, such as machining centers, forge shops, heat treatment workshops, and stockyards, can benefit from the MOSS system’s quick decision-making capabilities and its ability to prevent mix-ups. The system’s utility extends to materials inspection at In Gates, as well as intermediate testing points in yards.

The MOSS system not only covers all necessary elements for Cast Iron/SG Iron (CI/SGI) manufacturing, including Magnesium (Mg), Cerium (Ce), and Lanthanum (La), but it also offers the added advantage of Nitrogen analysis. This comprehensive analysis suite makes the MOSS system an indispensable asset for CI/SGI manufacturing firms. Furthermore, the MOSS system finds equal utility in non-ferrous alloy production, accurately analyzing key elements within required ranges. Its ease of acquisition, operation, and maintenance contributes to its appeal for production environments. Additionally, it serves as an ideal backup to larger optical emission spectroscopy units like the metavision-1008i3 or the metavision-10008X. In essence, the MOSS system’s exceptional capabilities and cost-effectiveness position it as an indispensable instrument for a wide range of industries and applications.
