Endress+Hauser is an international group of companies with 60 years of experience in producing and marketing process control devices and systems to monitor and improve industrial processes. Endress+Hauser products include level and limit switches, flow meters, analysis instrumentation, pressure and temperature devices, systems and gauging, as well as data acquisition and field bus communication products.
Thanks to this comprehensive range of systems and products, plant engineers in the mining industry throughout the world rely on Endress+Hauser to assist them in their production and automation processes.
Flow and level measurement
Endress+Hauser has a complete range of instrumentation suited to the rugged applications found in the mining industry. Many flow measurement applications are found in a mine and some of them are quite simple, i.e. the measurement of water or acid. However, the material of the lining and the electrode material must be resistant to acids or alkalis, or the lifetime of a standard magnetic flow meter would be reduced. For slurry applications, special meters with soft rubber linings are needed. The Endress+Hauser Promag 55 S magnetic flow meter has been specially developed for such applications. The brush-like electrode has a significantly increased operating lifetime.
Another example of Endress+Hauser measurement and automation equipment is the Levelflex M level measurement based on guided wave radar technology. This measuring device is used for fine-grained materials that are typically less then 10mm.
Levelflex M Evolution’s unique SensorFusion design helps to maximise copper production. The SensorFusion technology in the Levelflex M FMP55 combines two measurement principles in one device, microwave and capacitance, to guarantee optimum performance in complicated interface applications. To date, there was no solution for the interface challenge in copper extraction tanks and the Levelflex FMP55 was a great opportunity to develop a unique, repeatable and winning solution.
Reliable measurement instruments
Whatever resources you want to unearth, the right instrumentation brings them to light efficiently and economically. Listed below are further applications where reliable measurement instrumentation is of critical importance.
- In slurries (magnetic flow meters)
- In flotation cells (thermal mass flow meters)
- Coal in bunkers (ultrasonic)
- Sulphuric acid (free space radar)
- Flotation cells (ultrasonic combined with floats)
- Autoclaves (nuclear)
- Retractable thickener bed mass transmitter with robust ceramic measuring membrane
- Robust, abrasive and overload-resistant ceramic cell and modular design for various other applications
- In slurries (pH measurement)
- In thickeners (turbidity measurement)
- Pump control in sumps (conductivity switches)
- In slurries (nuclear density gauges)
