The two businesses have many synergies, and both have extensive experience in the iron, steel, and aluminium industries. The new agreement means foundries in Spain will be offered a clear route for acquiring the highest quality non-contact temperature measurement products. 

Inaki - HeadshotInaki Araquistain, AMETEK Land Sales Manager for Spain & Portugal, explains: “We are confident that this collaboration will bring major benefits for both existing and new customers. SPECTRO Hispania is well known and respected within iron and aluminium foundries, and this new agreement will make our extensive product range more readily available to the metals market in Spain.”

Guillermo Lecumberri, SPECTRO Hispania’s Director of Commercial & Marketing, said: “We are very pleased to have secured the new distribution agreement with AMETEK Land. It will enable us to expand our existing product portfolio by offering non-contact temperature measurement products to our extensive customer base.”  

SPECTRO Hispania is an authorised SPECTRO representative and supplies SPECTRO’s world-leading analytical instruments used for the elemental analysis of materials in industry, research and academia. SPECTRO is part of the Materials Analysis Division of AMETEK, Inc.

AMETEK Land offers highly accurate non-contact temperature measurement instruments for iron and aluminium foundries, including the Auto Pour Pyrometer System and Cyclops L Portable Non-Contact Thermometer.

AMETEK Land’s Auto Pour Pyrometer System is renowned for accurately measuring liquid metal stream temperatures during pouring into moulds and castings without disruption to the process. The innovative Auto Pour delivers these readings by providing one accurate value, measured and calculated for each pouring. The system generates readings by detecting the start and end of the pouring process and covering the stream’s entire area without disruption. It also monitors and outputs these readings for further analysis and storage.

The Cyclops 055L-2F Meltmaster is a portable non-contact thermometer from AMETEK Land that offers accurate temperature measurement of liquid metal while providing a much higher operator safety level and achieving significant savings on consumables. It also offers high accuracy, even while taking the temperature of the pouring of the last mould. The instrument is renowned for its ability to measure real liquid metal temperatures, regardless of high-temperature sparks, low-temperature water vapour, dust and smoke, which can cause errors in temperature measurement.   

Because of the non-contact nature of its measurement, there are health and safety benefits to using the Meltmaster, which is much safer from an operational point of view. The temperature readings are triggered from a distance of 3 to 4 metres away from the molten metal, providing a much higher level of operator safety. 

Its rugged instrument casing is designed to withstand harsh environments for extended periods. It also features a lens protector that keeps the optics in good condition. The ergonomically-friendly equipment is designed for single-hand operation, with contact-free measurement for better safety and easier use in hazardous environments.
