Industrial Minerals NA Technology Workshop 2015

Buena Vista Palace & Spa / Orlando / Florida / USA

09 - 11 March 2015

The Industrial Minerals Technology workshop is organized by the Industrial Minerals Association North America. The program comprises topics focusing on safety, health, environment, operations and engineering.

Harold Cline, our sales manager for Americas, and A.J. DeCenso (Preferred Process Solutions, LCC) will hold a presentation with the title "New sensor technology enables ore sorters to "see" invisible rock features".

Sensor-based sorters have been used for years to upgrade ore based on various mineral characteristics. While traditional methods such as optical sorting or X‐ray sorting are quite effective, in certain applications, such as the sorting of quartz or rock salt, these methods cannot reliably discriminate between “good” and “bad” rocks.

TOMRA Sorting has recently introduced an all new sorter that uses a revolutionary laser scattering technology to scan each individual rock and determine if the rock meets product grade criteria.

The presentation will provide an overview of the technology behind this new sorter and demonstrate its capabilities in some common industrial minerals applications.

Presentation on 10th March 4:00-4:20 PM.
