Truck load measurements
The characterization of feed into any processing plant/unit is vital for determining process parameters and ensuring the material is processed in an optimal way. Material characterization early in the process stages (earth movement/mining) allows more time for plant preparedness. Currently material is only characterized once it is processed by primary crusher, attempts have been made to characterize material still in the mining pit and during haulage however contestant calibration made this approach difficult to execute. Image analysis at the crusher inlet was a viable option but does not allow sufficient time for corrective action. New haul truck technology include scales that can measure the tonnage of material being transported. Can your team supply realistic feed material characterization?
