AMS Instrumentation & Calibration is your number one source for process instrumentation solutions for the mining industry.

Mining control operations utilize various types of equipment that often operate using different formats and interfaces. Instrumentation further increases the efficiency of automated mining operations by allowing you to monitor numerous processes including crushing, milling, flotation, concentration, and loading.

Instrumentation Used In The Mining Industry

Mining instruments provide real-time monitoring of materials handling equipment including crushers, mills, pumps, flotation cells, and cleaners. They are also used to monitor fill levels in transportation vehicles, silos and storage tanks. Types of instrumentation frequently used for mining control and monitoring include point level instrumentation, continuous level instrumentation, non-contact level measurement instrumentation, pressure and temperature gauges, and automation control.

  • Flow Meters: Measure the flow rate of liquids and are useful for dispensing
    applications. These instruments can be tailored to your exact needs
    whether you need to measure gallons per minute or liters per second to
    ensure repeatability and product consistency.
  • Level Instrumentation: Continuous and point level instrumentation includes a range of floats, probes, and switches for measuring and monitoring fluid levels in holding tanks and other vessels.
  • Temperature Instrumentation: Maintaining proper temperatures is critical in the production and storage of food and beverages. We provide a range of temperature instrumentation including sensors and heaters for monitoring cooking processes and ensuring ingredients and finished products are produced and stored at the appropriate temperatures.
  • Pressure Instrumentation: Various types of gauges, transmitters, and sensors are used to measure and display density, flow rates, fluid levels and more. These instruments help improve safety and quality control by monitoring critical functions and sending a signal where pressures reach low or high levels.

Nickel & Cobalt Mining

With new technologies emerging more raw material, such as Cobalt and Lithium need to be mined. These materials are widely used in the manufacture of Li-Ion batteries.

Cobalt is also used to create many other things, including powerful magnets, cutting tools and strong alloys for jet engines.

Lithium is one of the key metals driving the current hi-tech revolution. This light silvery metal, found in hard rock mines and salt lakes, is a vital component of lithium-ion batteries. These batteries power cell phones, notebooks and many other electronic devices. It is also the primary element in the larger batteries that charge hybrid and EV’s.

In addition to the traditional mining this offers more opportunities for AMS to supply our range of instrumentation and calibration equipment.

Benefits of Mining Automation

By automating processes, mining operations can:

  • Improve the efficiency of individual processes
  • Monitor and analyze processes for improved quality control
  • Reduce raw material waste and contamination
  • Provide a safer work environment
