Announcing New White Paper: CiDRA CYCLONEtrac™ Particle Size Tracking System Versus Traditional Particle Size Measurement Techniques

Wallingford, CT – February 13, 2017

CiDRA today released a new white paper, “CiDRA CYCLONEtrac Particle Size Tracking System (PST) Versus Traditional Particle Size Measurement Techniques,” addressing minerals processing plants using grinding mills in closed circuit with hydrocyclones to produce a product with a specific particle size distribution for optimum downstream process recovery. Existing instrumentation that provides particle size measurement is considered standard in most modern concentrator plants. However, instrumentation availability is often very low, mainly owing to high maintenance requirements of the analyser and associated sampling system.

This white paper, written by Dylan Cirulis, covers:

  • Technology comparisons
  •  Benefits of controlling particle size
  • Benefits of measuring individual cyclones
  • Savings per year with active cyclone control

CiDRA has developed a novel and robust technology that provides a highly reliable and low maintenance system for on-line measurement of the particle size in the overflow of individual cyclones. The system is based around a wetted sensor design with no moving parts and provides a real-time trend of the desired target grind size parameter, such as a percentage retained on screen (e.g. % +100mesh). The system does not require sampling and associated sample transfer piping that is prone to plugging, thus avoiding high maintenance requirements.

The white paper is also available from CiDRA, at www.cidra.com.
