 Automatic monitoring and control of iron-ore dressing technology parameters in the process of magnetic separation

N.V. Osipova

The author presents a brief overview of the metallurgical sector prformance. The description is given of various types of separators for iron-ore dressing. The structure of a magnetic separator automatic control system is presented with the description of sensors for monitoring of the content of useful components in concentrate, their losses in tails, and of an industrial controller for this machine. The article discusses the system operation in case of iron weight percent deviation in concentrated products from the desired values.

Key words: magnetic separation, final tailings, concentrate, classifier, water cyclone, deslimer, industrial controller, induction motor, thyristor converter, DC motor.
