Mining Sorting and Blending
SGS is a leader in innovative and technologically advanced services related to real time measurement systems and on-line analysis.
We can provide the knowledge and equipment base that allows you to sort or blend bulk products in real time to exactly meet operational specifications. SGS has earned the trust of concentrate handling facilities and power generating stations when they need sampling and sorting systems that will constantly meet specifications.
For instance, when raw material can be sorted on lack of impurity, grade or other quality measure, material that meets product specifications can bypass preparation or pre-concentration plants. This increases overall plant yield and results in a more efficient and profitable operation.
As well, the ability to reliably blend various qualities to arrive at a specific product allows you to:
- Blend poorer quality material with high quality material to more precisely meet contract specifications at minimum cost
- Avoid quality penalties and rejected shipments
Typically on-line analysis is used to allow real-time control of sorting and blending systems. We can help you evaluate your various options and design a complete system that includes sampling systems and on-line analyzers.
Most sizeable operations can benefit from using real time measurement systems. SGS offers you world-class technical expertise and experience in real time measurements – partner with us to optimize your operations.
