Sintering plants combine iron ore with other "fines" at a high temperature to produce a sintered cake.

The sintered material is then charged into the blast furnace. Successful sintering also removes unwanted Sulphur and makes for a more efficient process in the blast furnace. An ARC thermal imager is used to ensure that the sinter is homogenous throughout the cake.  

Data processing is performed within the ARC itself, while real-time visualisation of the thermal information allows rapid, informed decision-making.
