Industry: Mining Coal
Location: Central QLD Australia
Media: Coal Fines, Magnetite
A coal mining site required flow measurement of a mixture of coal fines and magnetite through chromium and steel, rubber lined pipes. Due to the highly abrasive process slurry combined with highly corrosive chemicals a clamp on intrusive flowmeter was tested. Process solids varied from 20% up to 50%. The flow included a large concentration of MAGNETITE .Lack of suitable meters prevented proper process control on the plant. During a flow survey conducted on the site most of the existing slurry lines were measured within a few hours.
Aquip Flowservices installed a portable high power Compuflow Doppler flowmeter and consistent and accurate flow readings were achieved within minutes.
