Quality benchmarking and auditing
MQP has entered into a co-operation with N-Tec and Technical Strategy Consultants (TSC) to provide enhanced melt quality measurement and control services under the Meltclean programme. These include:
- Remote benchmarking and analysis at N-Tec’s Oxford University laboratory to identify inclusion curves and benchmark inclusion levels against the N-Tec international data bank.
- On site benchmarking and quality auditing programmes to upgrade and monitor quality levels.
- Provision of Premetz analysis of Prefil curves and calculation of melt cleanliness values providing correlation of Prefil curves to Podfa measurements with a 99% fit.(Fig.6)
- Establishment of a statistical process control system for the in-line control of liquid metal quality in real time.
