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.

Benefits

  • 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.

Find the best-fit instrumentation

For the best outcome in the thickening process, Endress+Hauser offers an integrated package that optimizes concentrator efficiency. The recommended combination of the main instruments (Prosonic T FMU30, Promass F 200, Cerabar M PMC51, Promag 55S, Liquiline CM44x, Turbimax CUS71D, Orbipac CPF81D, Indumax CLS50D and Oxymax COS51D) make all the difference. Also, an all-inclusive service portfolio helps support you locally in securing the availability of your plant.
