In 2006-2007 SRI delivered a total of 6 Detmaster pinhole detectors to Tata Steel Ijmuiden. This year Ijmuiden will add another Detmaster MPH system to their Detmaster pinhole detector fleet, as they build new lines to enlarge their portfolio of packaging steels products. Tata Ijmuiden is a major steel producer in Europe and also one of the largest packaging steel producers.
The new Detmaster MPH system will be implemented on a brand new polymeric line. The line is delivered by RDI Fagor, who is also the contractor for SRI. The new Detmaster MPH1400 pinhole detection systems expected installation is in early 2017.
Tata Ijmuiden chose again several popular system options including the roll-out function, ISO9001 compliant verification disc function and KIS test tool option. All based on their needs and positive 10 year user experience with Detmaster pinhole detectors. These options have been found very useful and increasing the user value of the system.
TataSteel has now increased the total number of Detmaster MPH pinhole systems they have to 20 systems!
