Callidan Instruments is located in the heart of Australia's Bauxite, Gold, Zinc, Lead, Nickel mines and refineries, and hence it made good sense that the analyser would be designed to suit many applications so close to home.
Depending upon the material to be analysed and/or bed depth upon the conveyor, Callidan offer the standard MA-500 and the MA-500HD (for high attenuating material and/or bed depths). Both analysers provide accurate repeatable results.
Typically the MOISTSCAN obtains an instrument precision of 0.3% for most of these product types. The main applications for the MA-500 include:
- de-watering circuits such as belt filters, drum filters, de-watering screens, etc
- product applications for process feedback
- ROM applications for metallurgical accounting
- Loading Ports and train load outs for commercial and contractual purposes.
Clients involved with the MOISTSCAN Moisture analyser currently include, MIM Ltd, BHP Billiton, Rio Tinto, and SGS.
A MOISTSCAN MA-500 was installed in BHP Billiton's Cannington Mine for the control of moisture for it's paste plant. This application has a very large moisture range ( 10% - 30% ), and also has high levels of lead and zinc.
