The Blue Cube MQi technology meets the need for rapid data acquisition by process control systems. To optimise the mineral beneficiation performance of modern plants, Some Blue Cube MQi models can be installed in the slurry lines typically found in flotation plants, while others are built for dry streams such as in dry magnetic or electrostatic separator circuits. The MQi Hydromet can be installed in a liquid stream to measure minerals in solution. Response times for all models are typically less than 20 seconds.
All Blue Cube MQi units come with an Internet link to facilitate remote calibration, diagnostics and to upload program updates. Apart from collecting samples for calibration, no human intervention is required to acquire the data stream. A reasonably priced product support service includes remote calibration and an extended warranty for all core technology components.
