For this pre-treatment method, the level of ore slurry needs to be monitored continuously to guarantee safe and optimized utilization of the autoclave. Due to the temperature (200–250 °C) and pressure (approx. 35 bar) conditions, the walls of those autoclaves are too thick (around 300 mm) to apply conventional measurement solutions. Radiometric level measurement is the only technology to provide long-term, reliable results under these extreme conditions.
The SENSseries LB 480 detectors are certified for use in SIL2 applications. SIL3 is achieved with homogenous redundancy. The certificate covers all measurement applications, including high and low level alarms, continuous level measurements, and density measurements. Thus safe operation of critical processes is guaranteed.
