Hycal Mini
For Hydrogen Content Analysis

The HYCAL Mini has been specially developed to meet the requirements of the production environment - both for the aluminium-producing industry and for foundries. 

The HYCAL Mini is a portable hand-held measuring device for the real-time measurement of dissolved hydrogen in liquid aluminium alloys. The technology is based on a novel ceramic material (CaZrO3-In), which is able to conduct hydrogen ions at elevated temperatures and measure them in the hydrogen concentration cell.

  • Quick and easy determination of the melt quality by the caster in approx. 5 minutes.
  • Real-time measurement in the crucible.
  • The sensors used are characterised by good service lives and are able to perform roughly 100 measurements.
  • Measuring range >0.03 ml/100gr and <0.50 ml/100gr.
  • The technology is calibrated by IDECO as standard with a certificate and seal.
  • Designed as a hand-held device for flexible use in production operations.
  • Optional data backup is possible with HYCAL PC software.

  • HYCAL Mini with integrated software for 5 stored alloys and predefined measuring parameters
  • Data memory card for documenting the measurements
  • Transport box with loading device
  • CE conformity
  • Tested according to DGUV provisions
