On-Conveyor MR Analyser (MRA)

About the On-Conveyor MR Analyser

The Conveyor System Ore Analyser provides real-time mineral grade data on conveyed ore. The Analyser utilises cutting-edge magnetic resonance technology to delivers the quickest, most accurate bulk mineral grade data of any technology.

One Time MR Calibration

Mineral resonance is highly specific to each mineral. Because there is no interference or overlap in signal from other minerals or elements, and because the technology is unaffected by particle size or moisture content, analysers do not need recalibration in regular operation. Analysers operate for years at a time without the requirement to recalibrate.

In bulk sorting, confident in measurement is crucial and reliability of grade measurement is a core advantage of magnetic resonance systems.

MR systems operate nominally within the “high frequency” (3-30MHz) and “very high frequency” (30-299MHz) radio frequency bands. Other technologies using this range of frequencies are radio and television broadcasting, radar and 2-way radios. These technologies have been in use for tens to hundreds of years and health effects both well understood and minimal.
