Good morning all.

You all know in the Mining Industry we get measured on all our KPI's.

Currently at our mine we have a problem with ore delivering to the plant.We only have one weightometer at the end of our main belt system which means the more pressure you put on your employees the more disonesty you get. The traditional weightometers that get installed underneath the belt is to expensive and we are looking for something else that is cheaper and easy to install, ea. a type of laser above the belt. 

I am situated in South Africa, I would appreciate if somebody could assist.

  • Hello Leon,

    I design ultrasonic sensors. Please if you can provide more technical details (belt materials, length, environmental conditions and so on), I will try to provide with possible ready made solutions in the field of acoustic/ultrasonic sensors.


  •  Hi Leon,


    I'm curious, what do you mean with employee dishonesty when you have a weightometer installed? Improper calibration, throwing in some extra tonnes of waste?


    Regarding the scanner, I guess you're after something like what these folks are offering?




    Note: I'm not affiliated with them and have no experience with this tech. There are other, possibly local companies out there with similar products I'm sure but I haven't checked.
