Measurement solutions for mining applications

February 2021 Sensors & Transducers

As a technology leader in radiometric measurements, Berthold provides a wide range of analysers and measurement solutions that have been specifically designed for the mining and mineral processing industry. The product range includes non-contacting radiometric measurement systems for level, bulk flow, density and moisture determination. All measurement solutions are contactless and non-intrusive. Thus, there is no exposure to process media, and therefore, instruments are unaffected by acidic, caustic, abrasive, dusty or sticky conditions. These advantages are used to make critical applications more reliable:

• Online measurement: real-time process information.

• Excellent reading stability: no need for frequent recalibration.

• Ruggedness: no moving parts.

• High reliability: high accuracy with very good reproducibility.

• Outstanding sensitivity: excellent results even with remarkably low source activities.

The processes in which Berthold instruments are used include:

• Measuring the potassium content in the potash industry.

• Measuring the density of slurries and suspensions.

• Measuring the moisture in bulk solids.

• Measuring the mass flow on conveyors.

• Measuring the density for dredging applications.

• Measuring the level in autoclaves.

• Measuring the solids content in the thickener.
