ULTRASORT has released a wide-belt, random stream nickel sorter. The Em machine has belt speeds of up to 6m/s.
The machine accepts rocks anywhere on the belt. A matrix of sensors combined with laser scanning technology allows it to sort material from 6mm-300mm with feed rates of up to 250t/hr with up to 99% accuracy.
The equipment runs under computer control, using an MMI system. Operations staff can adjust and monitor the machines remotely. Engineers can run diagnostics on the equipment. A menu-driven system allows operators with minimal training to adjust the machines for various conditions and for high grade or low grade product streams.
A full scale demonstration and test unit is available for bulk testing rocks up to 65mm at UltraSort’s Sydney facility. Rapid bench tests are also available.
