Moisture Control For Minerals Processing
Advancements in research and analysis of the methods by which minerals are extracted from their ore deposits or gangue are credited to the field of extractive metallurgy.
The process of ore dressing includes a number of methods and techniques such as comminution to crush, grind or pulverize the larger pieces into a smaller granular form, sizing to separate particles of differing sizes and enrichment to increase the concentration of the desired material and upgrading the value of the product.
Mineral Moisture Control
Other aspects of the upgrading or enriching process include a dewatering process to recover suitable solids for further processing or other purposes. Maintaining a target moisture level helps to support dust suppression and its associated hazards. Real-time continuous moisture measurement is ideally suited for these and similar applications.
