    LAB – SOLIDSIZER

    The CANTY SolidSizer™ is a vision-based sensor used with the CANTY Vector System image processor for dry particle size measurement in a laboratory environment. The CantyVision™ Software accurately measures multiple aspects of the particles from area / perimeter / minor and major axis / etc.  In comparison to a sieve which measures only minor axis the CantyVision™ software can correlate directly to a sieve so the customer does not have to change any QC documents.  The SolidSizer™  can correlate within 2% of a sieve.  A typical sieve analysis takes anywhere from 20-30 minutes including cleaning and setup for a 70-100 gram sample.  On the SolidSizer™  that same sample takes less than 2 minutes.  Also multiple screen distributions can be setup to accommodate multiple customers or areas in the process, hence eliminating the need for multiple runs on the same sand for different size distributions.  After correlating to current methods of minor axis, customers find benefit in comparing minor axis to major axis and comparing shape factors.  Reduce lab time and make sure production samples are not skipped over due to lack of sample time available!

FLOTATION TANK
Within the flotation tank, monitoring of the froth characteristics at the surface is highly critical in order optimize yield of the mineral. Canty provide a modular camera light combination unit to provide a remote continuous view and control by detection of froth bubble size, velocity and stability.
  • Froth Analysis Camera

    FROTH CONTROL SYSTEMS

    An Ethernet camera is used to provide the measurement image to a customer supplied PC.  The image from each camera is dynamically analyzed for bubble size, froth velocity and stability. CantyVision™ software is included with each camera.  4-20mA or OPC output to a PLC or DCS for complete automated control.

FLOTATION TANK
THICKNER CLARIFIER
In order to analyze the performance of the thickener/ clarifier, Canty provide a direct inline color, turbidity and percent solids analyzer, to analyze the fluid discharged from the clarification process, in order to determine if it is within specification. Combining Canty’s imaging, fused glass and lighting technologies, the color of the liquid can be analyzed on a number of color scales (YUV, RGB, Lab), which can be taken as a direct measurement, or related to a specific NTU or FTU turbidity value. The image analysis software has the ability to filter out any air bubbles from the analysis, meaning only a true color / turbidity measurement is performed on the fluid. For immediate detection of any problems within the clarifier, Canty supplies an immersion turbidity / color and percent solids analyzer that can be mounted at various immersion depths to monitor the fluid.
  • IMMERSION PARTICLE SIZE MEASUREMENT SYSTEM

    .7 um – 4800 um Particle size analysis range.  This system is designed to be submersed into the product for real time highly accurate process measurement.

THICKENER CLARIFIER
In order to monitor crusher performance, Canty provides Industrial SolidSizer or 3D Rocksizer image analysis systems, which determine if the mining aggregates outputted from the crusher are the correct size and shape. The systems can be run at line through the use of a sweep sampler, or offline as laboratory instruments. In order to know the quantity produced from the crusher, it is important to have an accurate volume measurement. Traditionally, volume belt scales are used, but there can be significant time spent on maintenance of this equipment due to the nature of how the measurement is performed. The Canty Volume Flow system is a non-contact visual measurement of the product area profile on the end of the conveyor. This area measurement can be combined with the velocity of the belt (separate measurement required) in the operators control system, to provide an accurate volume flow measurement.

LIME KILN
CANTYVISION can be used to monitor the temperature of the flame and also give visual verification of size. The rotation of the kiln plays a key role in making sure the product is distributed correctly and that the product is not creeping up the side walls too high or too low as that will affect the rate at which the limestone is heating up and ultimately affect the calcination process. CANTYVISION can be used to give visual verification of product.
  • LIME KILN

    A LIME KILN is used to produce quicklime by the calcination of limestone that is calcium carbonate.  The rotary kiln that is used operates around 900°C-1000°C.  This operation needs to be monitored and reported on to make sure the producers are making good usable product.  If the product does not reach the required state to make the chemical reaction then is just stays as limestone.  If the kiln over heats it will start to make unusable burnt product.

    A key feature that must be maintained is the fire in which they are using to cause the calcination of the material.  This can be achieved by monitoring the fire by its temperature.  Another key item to monitor on the fire is its size and shape to make sure the kiln is having uniform heating.  CANTYVISION can be used to monitor the temperature of the flame and also give visual verification of size.  The rotation of the kiln plays a key role in making sure the product is distributed correctly and that the product is not creeping up the side walls too high or too low as that will affect the rate at which the limestone is heating up and ultimately affect the calcination process.  CANTYVISION can be used to give visual verification of product.  This will be a critical feature for the operator.
