|Current Physical Separation '17 sponsors|
Saturday, 11 February 2017
The increasing importance of physical separation in mineral processing was discussed in the posting of 16th January, which highlighted how electronic ore sorting is becoming increasingly used, due to the development of rapid sensors in such sorters. So we are pleased to announce the sponsorship of another leading player in this field, TOMRA Sorting Solutions of Germany.
The mining industry consumes 2%-3% of the world’s energy, the same amount of energy used by the entire airline industry. TOMRA Sorting, which originated from CommodasUltrasort, claim that their sensor-based sorters can reduce that energy consumption by 15%, as well as reducing the amount of water used by three to four cubic meters per ton of ore.
We also welcome back Jens-Michael Bergmann, TOMRA's Sales and Project Manager Europe, who will present a paper in the fine technical programme, describing TOMRA's latest multi-channel laser sorting machine, which opens new opportunities for mining companies.
