Rock Size Management to Increase Profitability
In pit, online measurement of post-blast muckpile particle size from mobile digging equipment such as cable shovels and hydraulic excavators. The Split-ShovelCam® system provides the key metric of particle size that can be keyed to location. The system automatically captures images so that you are immediately updated with rock fragmentation results.
- Optimize blasting: Measurement of primary crusher rock fragmentation feed provides feedback to the blast plan if truck is tied to the bench location. Relate ore type variation feeding the comminution circuit to help forecast crusher throughput.
- Fragmentation Profile: Size at the muckpile influences dig rates, shovel maintenance and overall production in many different ways. Get on the path to understanding what is happening at the muckpile.
- Run of Mine: Perhaps the best and only feasible place to measure, automatically and online, the post-blast fragmentation before it hits the leach pad.
