Company Profile

Welcome to Realtime Instruments (RTI).

RTI is Australian company that specialises in on-line analysis of bulk materials.

From our beginnings as instrument technicians servicing the Australian coal industry, RTI has steadily grown and diversified.

Today we are a high-tech manufacturer and supplier of on-line measurement equipment to the global coal mining, mineral processing, power generation, cement, and food manufacturing industries.

Whist our headquarters are in Australia we have business partners on all continents providing on-the-ground sales and customer support.

RTI’s on-line analysers incorporate sophisticated technology that accurately measures the quality of a bulk material as the product is transported on a conveyor belt.  We also measure product conveyed by other means; for example, in a hopper, screwfeeder, chute, and pipe.

Our signature product, the AllScan® PGNAA Elemental Analyzer, measures the chemical composition of cement, coal, iron ore, and most minerals. MoistScan®, the world’s most popular online microwave moisture analyser, measures the moisture content in a very wide range of materials. Our AshScan® coal quality analyser measures total ash content in coal.  The GammaScan® also measures total ash content but does not require a nuclear source.  RTI’s DD-1000 Digital Density Gauge measures the density of liquids and slurries in a pipe.  RTI also is the exclusive distributor and service agent in Australia for Process Automation’s range of high performance Belt Weighers, Tectron’s Tramp Metal Detectors, and the MARS Tramp Metal Removal System.  Our product range is as follows:

RTI’s customers range from small food processors to large multinational mining companies on all continents.

Underpinning the company is our commitment to customer service in the field.  We started as a service-based company and on-the-ground customer support firmly remains in our blood.  Our technicians are in the field daily installing and commissioning our equipment and undertaking general product support.  Our engineers can easily attend to any customer concerns by remotely accessing our equipment to perform routine maintenance and calibration checks, or analyse data as part of our popular product support agreement.

The success of our analyser range we attribute to our real world practical experience in the field and a philosophy of continuous product improvement.  It’s the lessons we learn and feedback we receive while working with our customers in the field that drives practical improvements to our products, be it making a mechanical modification to an analyser to make it easier to install, integrating the latest communications, or developing a simplified calibration procedure.

RTI is a member of The Realtime Group of companies which also includes Tanktel; a company that specialises in the remote monitoring of levels in tanks and silos.
