Company Profile

FCT ACTech manufactures and supplies the revolutionary Continuous On-Stream Mineral Analyser, or COSMA. COSMA is an on-line X-ray diffraction (XRD) analyser, which reports continuously the quantitative composition of crystalline phases in dry material passing through the instrument. The information from COSMA allows operators to see the quality of cement or ground clinker in real time, thereby allowing them to make process changes in the most timely manner for plant and product control purposes. COSMA has proven extremely effective in the real time analysis and control of cement and clinker manufacture, thus driving improvement in product quality, plant productivity and plant profitability.

FCT ACTech is part of FCT International, a global supplier of leading edge equipment and services to the cement and mineral processing industries. Established in 1984, the group comprises three wholly owned subsidiary companies: FCT International web site

FCT Flames specialises in the design, manufacture and operation of spectacular flame effects for ceremonial, sporting and other events. FCT Flames also supplies permanent flame features for buildings and other structures as well as smaller flame effects. We have a proven track record in successfully delivering projects around the world, carrying out projects in every continent except Antarctica.

Many FCT staff have extensive cement industry background, having worked in senior positions for cement manufacturers. As such, FCT personnel collectively have an intimate knowledge of the industry in areas including plant design, plant operation, plant maintenance, quality and cost issues. FCT's broad experience in the design, operation and maintenance of cement plants means that we optimise the equipment that we deliver from a total plant perspective.

FCT does approximately 90% of its work overseas. In most countries we work with local associate companies and partners, which possess the technical and project management expertise necessary to ensure that our customers receive the support that they require, both during and after project execution. We manage our projects and support our customers in the Americas via our Philadelphia registered company, FCT Inc and in Europe via German registered company, FCT GmbH.
