Real Time
Instruments

RTI is an Australian based company specialising in on-line elemental and moisture analysis of bulk materials providing operators with process data to make pro-active real-time control decisions to improve plant efficiency and bottom-line profitability.

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

Our Signature

Our signature product, the AllScan® Elemental Analyser, measures the chemical composition of raw material 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 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 service and distributes a large range of high-performance Belt Weighers, Tectron’s Tramp Metal Detectors, and the MARS Tramp Metal Removal System.
