Client: Rio Tinto – Cape Lambert Port B
Location: Cape Lambert, Western Australia
Cardno has been engaged by Rio Tinto to provide conveyor laser scanning systems to measure the volumetric ore flow of from their iron ore train unloaders.
The system provides key information on bulk conveyors such as flow rate, belt drift monitoring, ore profile reporting and available belt capacity. These metrics can be used to provide real productivity and throughput gains to material handling operations.
The system provides advantages over traditional belt weigher systems by being independent of ore density or moisture content, and able to better utilise the capacity of the belt.
