Humpback - Sonar Solids Profile Monitoring for Concentrate Thickeners

Principle of Operation

The “HUMPBACK” Sonar Array System utilises the unique acoustic impedance, self-cleaning developments (rarefaction) that were designed for the Flotation Cell process. The “Humpback” Sonar Array System has been designed to monitor the settling conditions in Concentrate Thickeners and provide feedback to help automatically control infeed rate, (Tons per hour/Cubic metres per hour) based on the settling efficiency (solids in suspension/stratified layer) in the region above the hindered layer and dense bed of the thickener.
