Reduce your production costs with thickener optimization
Integrated online monitoring improves concentrator performance
In the thickener process there are many critical key performance indicators – all of which need to be measured accurately and reliably. The challenge for the customer is to have all data monitored and controlled to gain an efficient thickening process.
Reduced risk of tank overflow
Cost reduction in flocculent dosing
Precise measurements of slurry underflow rates
Accurate online calculation of solids content
Better water utilization
Optimize the performance of your thickener
The thickening process is a fundamental step in modern mining separation processes. Thickening is the separation of suspended particles from a liquid by gravity settling. For effective thickener control, six measurements are critical: bed mass inventory, bed level, underflow density and flow, flocculent dosing and overflow clarity. As the plant conditions are very dirty, these measurements are not easy and require a lot of attention to select and install the proper equipment.
