Thermo Scientific CB Omni


Cross-Belt Online Elemental Analyzer for the Mineral and Metallurgical Industry

The Thermo Scientific CB Omni cross-belt elemental analyzer provides reliable and accurate analysis of bulk materials. Providing minute-by-minute composition analysis of ores and concentrates will reduce process upsets, therefore increasing your mill throughput. The modular design allows for quick, low cost installation and maintenance.


  • Increases mill throughput
  • Reduces the effect of process upsets 
  • Yields consistent product quality
  • Extends mine life
  • Reduces energy and refractory consumptioin pyrometallurgical process
  • Removes the need for continuous sampling and lab analysis 
  • Low installation costs and requirements


  • No need to cut existing structure 
  • Modular design for easy of installation
  • Modules are moveable without the need for heavy lifting equipment 
  • Belt widths from 600 mm (24 in) to 1800 mm (72 in)
  • Variable tunnel heights to accommodate process conditions 
  • Superior, robust accuracy (ABLC) 
  • State-of-the-art electronics
  • Flexible plant connectivity
  • Comprehensive user interface

The Thermo Scientific CB Omni is a Prompt Gamma Neutron Activation Analysis (PGNAA) system designed to integrate into either a new or an existing conveyor structure and analyze, in real time, the composition of bulk materials being transported by conveyor belt. The system analyzes the entire material stream, providing a representative analysis of the material conveyed.

The CB Omni incorporates the best and most innovative technology from the industry leading PGNAA supplier. The result is a unique system that provides unparalleled ease of installation, performance and reliability for bulk material analysis and control.

The CB Omni represents tried and proven technology that has become the standard over decades in cement, coal, and recycled metals applications.
