  • Optimise thickener efficiency for profitability PACE

    Jul 13, 2009· Most mining process operators agree that one of their major challenges is to accurately and reliably monitor the bed level and bed mass of their thickeners which together with other critical processes allows optimal thickener efficiency. Bed level. The ‘bed level’ is the interface between the aggregated solid material and the process water.

  • Thickener Optimization in your mining process Endress+Hauser

    The thickening process is a fundamental step in modern mining separation processes. Thickening is the separation of suspended particles from a liquid by gravity settling. For effective thickener control, six measurements are critical: bed mass inventory, bed level, underflow density and flow, flocculent dosing and overflow clarity.
