A quantum leap in quality and process control
Results in under 60 minutes instead of at least 24 hours. The polab® Cal system automatically prepares cement samples and analyzes them on the basis of parameters defined by the plant operator. polab® Cal can weigh the sample, set the water-cement ratio, blend the samples, load them into the calorimeter, and automatically evaluate the data. polab® Cal is of modular design and can operate one or more calorimeters. polab® Cal closes the gap between process and product quality control.
