Common Material Flow Problems in mined minerals

Mineral commodities may be common, but that doesn’t make them easier to handle. Their characteristics can affect their flow, and pose challenges during storage, processing and packaging.

Mined Materials

Material segregation

of particles with different hardness, grade and size.

Mined Materials

Ratholing

in stockpiles can affect a bin’s “live” capacity.

Mined Materials

Flooding/ flushing

of fine powders and concentrates.

Mined Materials

Plugged outlets

slow down or even stop production.

BEST FLOW AID FOR MINED MINERALS

Mined Materials

AirSweep’s powerful air pulses can improve the flow of any mined material—from fine gypsum to large, heavy rocks.

Unlike air cannons and vibrators, AirSweep will not cause metal fatigue. (Your bin already gets a beating from rocks and other heavy minerals. Hasn’t it gone through enough?)

PREVENT MATERIAL PILE UP WITH DAZIC ZERO SPEED SWITCH

How long would it take you to clear any material that would pile up if your conveyor or feeder malfunctions?

Could a malfunction lead to worker injury or equipment damage?

All these problems can be avoided with a DAZIC speed switch. It alerts operators if equipment moves too fast, too slow or stops completely.
