PSI 300 particle size analysers from Outotec are on-line sizing systems for mineral slurries. Taking samples from one to three process streams and measuring slurry particle size in the range of 25-600 µm (28 – 500 mesh), these particle analysers are especially optimized for measurements above P40 size.
The particle analysers are compact stand-alone devices with various application specific options. To ensure the representativeness of the sample as well as the trouble-free operation and transportation of the sample to the analyser, primary sampling from the process stream is normally engineered as part of the analyser delivery project using the range of proven Outotec primary samplers.
For real-time process monitoring and control, the analyser system reports the analysis results to the plant automation system and a variety of particle size distribution characteristics can be selected as outputs.
Operating on a continuous basis, 24 hours a day, the PSI 300 particle size analysers require minimal maintenance. Weekly maintenance routines checks involve checking the sampling system and cleaning any trash build up in the secondary sampler.
