Ore thickener

Density measurement in the ore thickener

Process data

Measuring task:
Density measurement
Measuring point:
Tank
Measuring range up to:
1000 – 1300 kg/m³
Medium:
Different ores
Process temperature:
+15 … +25 °C
Process pressure:
0 … 0 bar
Special challenges:
Abrasive medium

Application

Extracted minerals are fed to the thickener as a slurry via a trough. The solids are settled out into the bottom of the tank, in a process accelerated through the addition of flocculants. Precise density measurement of the slurry underflow is necessary for effective control of the ore thickener.
