Vulcan case study, future proofing a scrap yard

“Quality second generation analyzer that is well built, robust and fast. Perfect for what we need in the scrap yard.”

As a start-up scrap yard, Romuta wanted to build an advanced, digitalized scrap yard of the future. They met with Hitachi High-Tech Analytical Science team to test the Vulcan laser induced breakdown (LIBS) analyzer, being impressed with its speed in accurately identifying alloys and data management. Now with a Vulcan, the team has been able to start to achieve their vision.


Founded in 2017 near Oulu in Finland, Romuta deals with mixed general metal scrap. This includes iron-base, stainless steel, coppers, brasses and aluminium alloys. Alloys are sorted and sold again to metals producers or larger scrapyards. As alloys are commonly sorted into groups rather than based on individual grade, speed is essential.  The team also wanted to use the latest data management technology that would enable the storing of results, including photos, in the cloud...
