The Mining Industry is Booming!
If you are not using quality components in the mining industry, then you are going to miss out.
Quadbeam’s sensors are top drawer and here is why:
Quadbeam Technologies Sensors are products that can be relied on, due to its accurate, rugged construction, and repeatable signal.
It’s excellent performance means you have control of Suspended Solids and Turbidity in the Mining Processes.
What are the S Series bodies manufactured from?
Polypropylene or PVDF are the main ingredients, and they give excellent chemical resistance for challenging chemical environments, often found in mining applications.
Their Application usage for the mining industry is broad-
- Raw Water intake monitoring
- Water Treatment processes
- Control of flocculate dosing
- Clarifier overflow monitoring
- Filter breakthrough monitoring
- Tank Profile monitoring
The Key Benefits are-
- Provides excellent chemical resistance
- Repeatable, reliable and accurate signal
- Long lasting
The Products to look out for are:
The S10-IMM, S20-IMM and T30-IMM
We have a nice story from the mining industry for you. Quadbeam, based in New Zealand, had a client, situated in one of the largest rock quarries, who had a problem in their sand and aggregate washing plant. The problem was with the recycled waste water.
Following a very painful manual process, and umpteenth errors, where the waste water was being fed back to the sand washing plant, they had a Quadbeam S20 suspended solids sensor installed in a vertical section of the pipe. This measured, on a continuous basis, the suspended solids in the recycled water.
The flow and suspended solids measurements were sent to a PLC, where it calculated the mass flow of the solids and adjusted the dosing pump so that the correct level of chemical addition was achieved.
After the flocculation process, the solids settle out in 3 large cone clarifiers. Then, the clean recycled water is sent back to the plant.
For the last 2 years, the plant has produced consistently clear recycled water, with minimal maintenance involved.
Should this be a situation you wish to rectify, please contact us for more info on Quadbeam’s sensors.
