Grupo Mexico’s mining plant in Charcas, Mexico is mining and processing copper, lead, and zinc ore. The primary objective for applying the Rhosonics SDM ECO is to regulate the slurry density in the underflow of a tailings thickener. Accurate density measurements are needed to evaluate and improve the pumping performance.
The SDM ECO system was properly installed and tested to read water and slurry accurately. Throughout the performance period, the SDM consistently demonstrated reliability and accuracy in its measurements, transitioning back to reading water after the slurry was pumped.
