Albemarle’s ribbon cutting ceremony

Malvern Panalytical announced that a ribbon cutting ceremony marking the successful installation of the Claisse® rFusion system for Albemarle Corporation was held on May 2, 2018 in Bayport, TX (USA). This event celebrates the achievement of a major project that will provide customers with efficiencies and higher levels of productivity.

The ceremony marks the successful culmination of months of effort and strong collaboration among different experts at Malvern Panalytical. These experts worked together, and with the customer’s team, to smoothly integrate the rFusion system, SamTracs software, and two Axios XRF systems to optimize the customer’s global analytical process.

Christian Marcoux, General Manager of the Québec supply center explains "The Bayport laboratory serves many departments within Albemarle and processes many types of samples. We were able to develop a versatile solution that can fulfill all their needs, and I’m very happy about that."

With the global solution provided by Malvern Panalytical experts, productivity and capacity in the Bayport laboratory increases without adding any additional work force or operating costs, with a less-than-3-year payback period. The SamTracs software optimizes the flow of samples to each XRF system with the priority indicated for better efficiency. Accuracy from consistent sample preparation and improved safety for workers are additional benefits as to why Albemarle decided to buy the rFusion.
