Alsys International operates in various industries. The company started automating fertilizer sample preparation 33 years ago. Alsys is nowadays active in the fertilizer, soil nutrients, soil pollution, fat and oil, routine food analyzes industries
Alsys International has been active in the industry for many years and has already provided more than 25 companies with a robot.
The Alsys RB-247 Robot analyzes Kalium, Potassium and Nutrients in fertilizer.
Our RB-247 Robots uses Metrohm Titratiors, Mettler moisture analyzer and Metrohm Ion chromatography (IC) with MagIC Net Software. The RB-247 Lab robot is fully automated.
One thing to to do is bringing the samples to the Robot
Kalium, Potassium, Nutrients
Soil analysis is a set of various chemical processes that determine the amount of available plant nutrients in the soil, but also the chemical, physical and biological soil properties important for plant nutrition, or "soil health". Chemical soil analysis determines the content of basic plant nutrients; nitrogen (N), phosphorus (P2O5), potassium (K 2 O), pH, humus content, total CaCO3, available lime, organic matter, total sulphur (S), trace elements, and other physical characteristics (capacity, permeability, density, pH - value). Soil analysis imply:
· Taking soil samples
· Laboratory analysis of samples
· The interpretation of the results by the issuance of fertilizer recommendation.
Which are the aims of soil analysis? The aims of soil analysis are:
· To determine the level of availability of nutrients or the need for its introduction
· To predict the increase in yields and profitability of fertilization (poor soils do not always provide yield increase due to fertilization because of possible limiting factors)
· To provide the basis for calculating the required fertilizing of each crop
· To evaluate the status (supply) of each nutrient element and simultaneously determine the compensation plan (nutrient management).
According to the content of nutrients in the soil obtained by chemical analysis and the requirements of the culture for a certain yield, it is easier to determine the amount of required fertilizer to achieve high and quality yields. In determining the amount of nutrients should be noted that at the best condition in the soil plants can adopt up to 80% of nitrogen, 40% of phosphorus, 60% of potassium and 40% of magnesium. High quality soil analysis is basis of planning of fertilizing, and thus the quality of the entire production cycle, which results in a high quality and yield and better farm management. When to make a soil analysis? Taking soil samples for analysis is done after harvesting of crops and before any fertilizing, at optimum soil moisture. The soil must not be depressed, along the edge of the plot or where mineral fertilizers are unevenly scattered, because the sample will not be representative and the resulting data will not be a reflection of the real situation. In the case of permanent crops (orchards and vineyards) analysis is carried out every 4-5 years.
Alsys International develops pre-processing robots to analyze small metal particles in used oil. Our robot does the entire sample preparation, after which these samples go into the analysis equipment.
Elemental analysis is a fundamental tool in used oil analysis. Used appropriately, trends in different wear metals can indicate a problem, allowing corrective action to be taken before catastrophic failures occur. However, the effectiveness of elemental analysis in pinpointing a problem and isolating it to one specific component or group of components can be greatly enhanced by taking some time in advance of the lab reporting “active machine wear” to identify the specific metallurgical composition of all oil-wetted components.
For example, high copper in an oil sample could indicate a host of potential problems. Seen in isolation, the copper is likely due to wear of a purely copper containing component such as a cooler core - baring any copper-containing additives in the oil. However, observed in conjunction with elements such as tin, zinc or aluminum, the copper is more likely to originate from a copper-containing alloy such as brass or bronze.
In order to make the most of elemental spectroscopic data, it is a good practice to spend some time gathering information about the metallurgy of each and every component, and compiling a reference, such as that shown in Table 1 in advance of the lab reporting a problem.
Fat and Oil (Wetchem)
Alsys International have built serveral robots for the fat and oil or Wetchem industry. These cover the following analyzes: Acid value, Saponification value, Iodine value, Hydroxyl value, Peroxide value, Carbonyl value, Bromine value.
All analyzes use heated stations and if its necessary reflux stations. Complete fully automated and use well know titration brand equipment (Metrohm) included the titration software (Metrohm Tiamo).
Make your 24/7 laboratory analyzes without the human factor and correct reaction times.
Weighting in via Mettler balances.
Spectrophotometric analyzes have also been successfully automated via Avantes.
Interfaces to all LIMS possible and done.
