Minpraxis Tester signal processing automation and validation

The most energy intensive component of mineral processing is comminution (crushing and grinding), consuming, on average, about 50% of the total electric energy of a mine site. To optimize and thereby improve the energy performance, accurate measurement of the ore hardness is critical. The proposed study is aimed at developing a new test apparatus that represents an improvement over existing methods. The test apparatus has the ability to generate data for larger sample sets than present methods and thereby represents a significant improvement.
