Sensor Based Sorting Technology
Sensor-based sorting has become an effective means by which to de-stone and de-bulk run of mine and dump material, as well as beneficiating discard low grade material. The method has also proved extremely useful when dealing with municipal solid waste and electronic waste recycling. At CRONIMET Mining Processing, sensor-based sorting is an integral part of our business, a technology which has been successfully implemented in the following applications:
- separation of basalt and waste rock from kimberlite in the diamonds industry
- beneficiation of low grade wolframite or tungsten ore material
- recovery of ferroalloys from ferronickel and ferrochrome slag material
- beneficiation of low grade base metal sulphide ore and waste rock
- separation of copper sulphide and molybdenum sulphide ore from waste rock
- recovery of copper matte from copper slag material
- separation or de-stoning of shale and coal
- coke and coal separation
- chrome ore sorting
Our wide range of experience in the realm of sensor-based sorting has led to our team initiating a number of key projects in the industry, some of which are available in the form of case studies for more specific information.
The beneficiation of waste material using sensor-based sorting technology is one of our core concerns. Not only does our team boast extensive experience in this niche field, but we also insist on nurturing our relationships with key equipment manufacturers and suppliers. As we have embraced this superior technological approach across various applications, our sensor platforms have expanded to include X-ray transmission (XRT), electromagnetic (EM) and near infrared (NIR) platforms. Of course, we also make use of combination platforms, where we incorporate multiple sensor types in a single separation. It is just another way we endeavour to remain at the forefront of industry innovation.
