MINING CONCENTRATE THICKENER

As extracted ore moves through the slurry feed line, the Red Meter Toro measures the slurry density in order to determine the optimal amount of chemical thickener to inject into the Concentrate Thickener.

DESCRIPTION

As extracted ore moves through the slurry feed line, the Red Meter Toro measures the slurry density in order to determine the optimal amount of chemical thickener to inject into the Concentrate Thickener.

As the slurry moves from the Concentrate Thickener, the Red Meter Toro measures the density of the underflow to validate that the correct concentration has been achieved.

DISRUPTION

Without the measurement of slurry feed density, there is no method by which to optimize the addition of thickening agents. If an insufficient amount of agent is injected, the footprint of the tailings pond will increase, thereby exposing the mining operation to increased risk of contamination. If too much agent is injected, the cost of expensive chemicals is inflated, compromising the efficiency and bottom line of the operation.

Intramedia density measurement instruments such as nuclear and ultrasonic devices must be regularly calibrated, and have wide margins of error. Nuclear devices incorporate additional costs such as import and transportation fees, as well as personnel costs associated with safety, certification, and maintenance.

ADVANTAGES

+  No need to calibrate instruments for specific media characteristics
+  Eliminates regulatory or safety concerns that surround on-site radioactive materials
+  No maximum percent solids
+  Easy to use and install

Plug & Play

Each Red Meter Toro is calibrated on the factory floor before shipment. It is not necessary to recalibrate due to changes in your media characteristics.

Data Quality & Accuracy

Rather than inferring density, the Red Meter Toro takes data from multiple integrated sensors which are used to calculate density in real time.

Process Control

When using multiple Red Meter systems, process data is collected from multiple points within the process which enables statistical process control.

Easy To Use & Install

Designed to be simple and easy to use, the Red Meter Toro is a plug and play system which just works – empowering you to focus on what you do best.
