With more than 40 years of experience in the design and production of neutron tubes and neutron generators, Sodern is the global specialist in neutron analysis systems using an electrical source. Sodern has developed a real-time raw material analysis technology through neutron activation in the cement, coal, minerals and waste industries.
The CNA is an analyzer that allows to quantify in real time the elementary composition of raw material carried on a conveyor belt. It is used mainly in cement plants but there are also applications in the mining industry (iron ore, nickel or copper ore) and in coal. Installed on the production line, the machine is capable of continuously measuring in real time the elementary composition of the material. Today, more than 70 Sodern CNAs are in service worldwide.
