Robust automation and reporting, together with its small footprint and low cost of ownership make the Explorer 4 Analyzer the best solution for operations looking to improve their production processes and quality while also maximizing operational budgets. The Explorer 4 Analyzer rapidly provides full morphological and chemical characterization of each individual inclusion. 

The Explorer 4 Analyzer with Recipe Automated Feature Analysis (RAFA), provides a fast, accurate way for the metals industry to monitor and control the presence of nonmetallic inclusions that affect product quality. For example, inclusions in the steel making process can promote nozzle clogging, which leads to downgraded quality. Monitoring the number and type of inclusions lets steel makers adjust the production process to reduce the number of interruptions and improve the quality of their products. The powerful RAFA extends the proven Aspex algorithms to accurately and reproducibly analyze large sets of production data. The data sets can be reviewed to identify and correct process issues. The ability to monitor and optimize an industrial process is critical for maximizing production efficiency, cost savings, and the ultimate profitability of the operation.
