IMPLEMENTATION OF OPTICS AND XRAY SEPARATORS AND EFFECTS ON COST
The term sensor-based separation is the detection of particles and separation according to their various properties by mechanical, hydraulic or pneumatic processes (Wotruba & Harbeck, 2012). It is possible to come across various types of sensors in the mineral and recycling industries. Inhedron Optic and Xray Separators have been developed by a team specializing in the mining sector with 100% local opportunities. Inhedron Optik and Xray Separators are included in the ore preparation flow charts to carry out operations such as rough concentrate production, stone throwing, salable concentrate production and different ores separation. When release is achieved after primary or secondary crushing, effective separation is achieved by supplying in narrow size groups.
Research shows that tufted ores contain 30% by weight waste between 10-100 mm. With a pre-enrichment process with Inhedron Optical and Xray separators, the amount of material transported is reduced, reducing energy and water consumption in grinding processes. It helps to increase the efficiency of concentration by providing cleaner waste. Pre-enrichment produced with optical and Xray separators plays an important role in sustainable mineral processing operations. In the process of sensor based separation, a breaker, sieve, optical or xray separators with an appropriate size reduction ratio are generally used. When the flow chart of the Optical or Xray separators is examined, it is seen that the materials are fed in gradual and narrow size groups in order to make high efficiency separation. Initial investment and operating costs are 50% less in systems using Optical or Xray separators compared to systems with heavy media separation. Since the ore grains are separated in the sensor based separators, the separation efficiency of the optical and xray separators decreases as the maximum grain size fed increases. The grain size to be fed is also very important economically. While the liberalization size of the ore determines the upper dimension, the thinness of the ore causes the economy of the ore to be negatively affected. (Wills, 2016)
To summarize, if extrication in large sizes of product or waste is possible, the number one choice with low costs should be Inhedron Optical and Xray Separators.
