Ore Extraction and Mining

Ore moisture measurement and moisture measurement in other mined minerals can be key to product control and preparation for further processing. Minerals processes such as copper require moisture measurements at various stages such as:

  • Pre-leaching
  • After leach
  • At the exit of the filters
  • Before the furnaces
  • Prior to loading the vessels

The CM710e Industrial Moisture Gauge from NDC Infrared Engineering can be applied for moisture measurement at various locations in the ore extraction process and configured for high, low and intermediate moisture ranges. In addition, since the process environment at point of moisture measurement may be hot, dusty or steamy,  the gauge can be configured with a choice of temperature controlled and ruggedized housings.

Moisture measurement of mined ores includes:

  • Bauxite, crushed (aluminium oxide)
  • Calcium fluoride (fluorspar), crushed
  • Copper Concentrates
  • Copper/Nickel ore Granules
  • Copper/Nickel ore Powder
  • Copper Tailings
  • Dolomite, crushed (calcium magnesium carbonate)
  • Gold ore
  • Gypsum (calcium sulphate)
  • Illminite
  • Kaolin granules
  • Molybdenum Sulfide
  • Phosphates
  • Potash (Refined)
  • Potassium  Fluoride
  • Talc
