Mining Solutions Company Launches New Acoustic Level Interface Transmitter for Flotation Cells

Press release date: Jul 22, 2014

FloLevel Technologies' level interface transmitter is able to accurately measure solutions consisting of two densities

MELBOURNE, Australia -- FloLevel Technologies, an innovator of level measurement products, launches a new self-cleaning acoustic level interface transmitter for Flotation Cells. This new technology accurately measures most liquid/slurry solutions where an interface of up to two densities exists, that need to be monitored continuously.

The level interface transmitter tracks liquid to liquid interface, liquid to paste interface, liquid to granular interface. It is a hi-powered Ultrasonic self-cleaning transmitter that is not affected by conductivity and dielectric of the solution. The pulse amplitude is great enough to cause a phenomenon called "rarefaction," which causes cavitation to be produced from the array transducer diaphragms as they pulse. The cavitation bubbles oscillate in front of the diaphragm, which cause implosions that generate high energy levels.

"With over 30 years of experience from many different applications in the mines we have developed a level transmitter that will optimize the mineral recovery in Flotation Cells and significantly cut costs for the mining industry," says Robert Stirling, Owner and inventor of FloLevel Technologies. 

The FloLevel system is easy to install from the top of the Flotation Cell and easy to calibrate. It comes with adjustable 316SS bracket, with flange mounting options and a colour display controller mounted in a stainless steel enclosure. They can measure all types of Flotation Cell, with a maximum control range of 6400 mm (250") and resolution accuracy options available are 15mm (0,5") and 25mm (1.00"). Various output capability options are available, like 3 x 4-20Ma, Modbus, ProfiBus, Foundation FieldBus, DeviceNet, and Ethernet.

The FloLevel Array is suitable for all mineral recovery, eg: Copper, Molybdenum, Gold, Silver, Lead, Nickel, Iron Ore, Coal, Potash, Oil Sands, Zinc, Gypsum, etc.

About FloLevel Technologies
FloLevel Technologies develops and manufactures level and flow analyzers for Flotation Cells. The FloLevel products optimize the mineral recovery process in Flotation Cells and significantly cut costs for the mining industry. The FloLevel transducers are not affected by colour, density, dielectric or by the type of mineral that they are working in, they are self-cleaning and self-checking. They accurately measure pulp, slurry and froth height as well as froth density and froth flow rate and provide instantaneous feedback on ore characteristic changes.
