How New Technologies Can Reduce Mining Inefficiency

It is necessary to have an optimal size of an equipment to transport and process the largest amount of crushed rocks.

FREMONT, CA: Starting from contact level measurement to ultrasonic, laser and radar sensors, there several types of processes are used for monitoring the levels of material across several mining applications each day. However, non-contact level measurement with radar has proven to be the best solution when it is about the high-accuracy measurement of aggregate in rock crushing.

Finding a dependable level measurement device is of immensely important in rock crushing. To transport and process the largest amount of crushed rock, the best possible size is necessary, with the ore undergoing crushes in both a primary and secondary rock crusher to accomplish this. In this procedure, level measurement makes sure that the best possible results are reached, allowing efficiency and constant operation for miners. Moreover, the possibilities of choking and damaging the crusher also considerably decrease.

Buying the appropriate measurement instrument for rock crushing is a crucial investment because it will provide a considerable amount of savings over time.

Radar Level Measurement for Rock Crushers

One of the demanding operations in mining is rock crushing. The tremendously noisy and dusty circumstances within a rock crusher make it predominantly complicated to acquire reliable, accurate, and readings along with ultrasonic or laser level sensors that are better suitable to other applications.

However, radar sensors like VEGAPULS 69 use lens-shaped antenna so that it can emit radar signal continuously. The instrument can be installed effortlessly at the top of the crushing vessel along with the rock reflecting the signal to the antenna as an echo. The signal’s frequency that is received diverges from the released signal’s frequency that helps the device to calculate the differentiation. With this, they can establish the level of medium in the vessel.

Radar level sensors also do not get affected by the harsh conditions that are created by rock crushing, which makes them the perfect form of level measurement for the application. High measurement accuracy for optimal continuous processing can also be guaranteed with non-contact radar level measurement.
