Minerals and Mining Particle Size Analyzers
Particle size is critical in mineral grinding, where the target is to reduce the particle size of mined ore sufficiently to enable liberation of the mineral in a downstream separation process.
Particle size is critical in mineral grinding, where the target is to reduce the particle size of mined ore sufficiently to enable liberation of the mineral in a downstream separation process. Thanks to its robust performance, wide dynamic range and flexible options for both wet and dry sample dispersion, laser diffraction particle sizing is widely used in: • Monitor grinding processes – to reduce costly over-milling and minimize energy consumption • Classification – the separation of materials based on particle size • Quality control of mineral products – to ensure correct specifications are met • The reuse and recovery of rejects – for more sustainable mining solutions This sector includes a wide variety of different materials and a diverse range of laser diffraction applications, including those specifically applicable to calcium carbonate.
