MM 6000 is a completely automatic and user friendly equipment, able to perform tests on iron ore and coke samples according to several Standard procedures. Instrumentation is based on a Programmable Automation Controller to drive, fully automatically, the test in terms of oven and sample temperatures, reaction and purge gas flow rates and monitoring the sample weight.

The equipment accepts entry of sample data for automatic alculation of test conditions (when requested) based on the parameter values acquired by the instrument. The System is equipped with a touch screen graphic interface with Recording and Data Logging features of main process variables.

The vertical oven is constituted by 5 independent heating zones and the control thermocouple (3 measuring points) is directly placed in the sample for a better isothermal condition during the test.

Reaction gases and Nitrogen (purge gas) flow rates are driven by high precision Mass Flow Meters with automatic selection and by flow rate control. High accuracy weighing device is installed for continuous monitoring of sample weight loss during the test.

MM 6000 features are:

  • Accuracy of test temperature during all reaction time
  • Isothermal temperature distribution in the sample
  • High accuracy of gases flow rate measurement and control
  • Accuracy of sample weight (resolution 0.1 g)
