The Beginning

From our beginnings as an instrument service provider to the Australian coal industry, RTI has steadily grown and diversified into a high-tech manufacturer and supplier of on-line measurement and analysis equipment to the global mining, mineral processing, power generation, cement production and food industries. RTI’s customers range from small food processing facilities to large multinational mining and power generation companies on all continents.

With a vast global network of reputable business partners on all continents, we can provide customers with unmatched service and sales support ranging from on-site technical services to remote diagnostic and calibration expertise.

RTI’s on-line analysers utilise the latest technology to measure bulk material’s chemical composition, density, and moisture content as the product is transported on a conveyor belt. RTI’s ability to pivot its onshore manufacturing production line allows for easy customisation of existing products to facilitate the analysis of products in hoppers, screw-feeders, chutes, and pipes, in addition to standardised conveying systems.

Our Signature

Our signature product, the AllScan® Elemental Analyser, measures the chemical composition of raw materials in cement production, steel production, coal, iron ore, and most minerals. MoistScan®, the world’s most popular online microwave moisture analyser, measures the moisture content in a wide range of materials. Our AshScan® coal quality analyser measures the total ash content in coal. The GammaScan® also measures total ash content but does not require a nuclear source. RTI’s DD-1000 non-intrusive Digital Density Gauge measures the density of liquids and slurries in pipes. RTI services and distributes a large range of high-performance Belt Weighers, Tectron’s Tramp Metal Detectors, and the MARS Tramp Metal Removal System.

How Data is Transforming Decision Making in Mining

The mining industry is facing increasingly problematic challenges in meeting the worlds demand for critical minerals. Factors including slower economic growth, more complex ore bodies, ore dilution, sustainability and talent shortages all making the goal of operational excellence far more difficult to achieve.

Unlocking Precision: A Comprehensive Guide to PGNAA Technology

Advancements in Elemental Analysis tech are vital for mining, aiding plant operators in decision-making based on element composition. With ore quality declining and demand rising, real-time elemental data is crucial for process control.

Real Time Instruments Set to Showcase PGNAA Research at SME MINExchange

Real Time Instruments is gearing up to make a significant impact at the upcoming SME MINExchange, an event that brings together key players in the mining and minerals industry. The event, scheduled to take place from February 25th to 28th at the Phoenix Convention Centre, promises to be a platform for industry leaders, professionals, and innovators.
