MINING - ORE SORTING

Mining involves the extraction of valuable materials from vast amounts of raw deposits. An essential stage in the mining process is sorting and classifying the identified valuable material, which can be done with X-ray technology.

The sorting process is especially important when it comes to achieving targeted profitability thresholds. Sorting through raw material and being able to discard low-grade material early on in the process reduces refinement costs.

APPLICATIONS:
  • Real-time during:
    • Sorting of ore
    • Classification of ore
    • Identification of undesired objects

X-ray technology is used for real-time analysis and the classification of raw ore content. X-ray monitored conveyor belts located at the extraction sites make sorting extremely efficient.

SYSTEMS SUITED FOR ORE SORTING
COMET X-ray inserts and tubes are well-suited for sorting applications - either as a part of the iXRS modules or as systems like the PXS EVO series and the ION series. The key is the right combination and configuration.

The PXS EVO water-cooled systems are perfect for around-the-clock operation, and their compact size makes it easy to integrate into sorting systems for the mining industry.
