Abstract [en]

The dynamic behaviour of μm-scale ferromagnetic particles in suspension is of interest for various mineral beneficiation processes. It is, however, difficult to experimentally study such processes at the particle-level. In these instances it can be advantageous to resort to suitable particle simulation methods.Stokesian dynamics is a mesh-free numerical technique developed for suspensions of nm to mm size particles. The method inherently considers hydrodynamic interactions, but additional interaction models can be included depending on the system under investigation. We here present a Stokesian dynamics (SD) implementation, which allows for simulation of the motion of suspended magnetic particles in presence of an external magnetic field. The magnetic interaction model includes particle-field interactions as well as pairwise interactions between magnetised particles.Simulations are compared with experiments using a laboratory-scale flow cell. The method is shown to be realistic for studying ferromagnetic suspensions in mineral processing applications, and can be useful in understanding and predicting the efficiency of mineral separation processes.

Abstract [en]

In this work an ultrasound-based measurement method is used formonitoring suspension velocity and build-up of magnetic material inside awet Low-Intensity Magnetic Separator, a process used e.g. inbeneficiation of magnetite ores. Today the only available option is tomonitor material transport between unit operations; i.e. flow rate,solids concentration, and particle size distribution of suspension flowin pipes are measured online using standard equipment.An Acoustic Backscatter System is fitted to the tank of a separator, andused to monitor the internal flow. A method called Ultrasonic VelocityProfiling is used to capture internal velocity profiles. Simultaneously,the backscatter signal intensity is used to get indications about localsolids concentration of the flow, and build-up of magnetic material. Themethods are evaluated in realistic conditions, where the effect ofvarying factors relevant to machine performance is investigated. Theincluded factors are; the slurry feed rate, the slurry solidsconcentration, the magnet assembly angle, and the drum rotational speed.The presented method gives useful information about the internal materialflow inside the separator. The velocity measurements capture the,sometimes complex, internal flow patterns, for example the presence andvelocity of a recirculating flow in the dewatering zone. Additionally,keeping a balanced material loading in the concentrate dewatering zone isimportant to separator performance. Using the signal backscatterintensity it is possible to qualitatively monitor this material loading.Generally these direct measurements can aid in improvements to machinedesign, process optimization, and process control.

Abstract [en]

In the mining industry, ferromagnetic particles (e.g. magnetite) are concentrated using wet low-intensity magnetic separation (LIMS). The performance is to a large extent controlled by the internal flow conditions in the separator. In previous work, it was shown how an ultrasound pulse-echo setup can be used to simultaneously measure particle velocity profiles and local solids concentration variations in laboratory conditions. In this paper, a real-world case is demonstrated where the system is installed on one of the wet LIMS at the LKAB R&D facilities in Malmberget, Sweden. For the pilot scale experiments a setup with two ultrasound transducers, mounted at the bottom of the separator tank, is used. The design of experiments method is used to study the effects of the feed solids concentration, drum rotational speed, position of the concentrate weir, and the magnet assembly angle on the measured flow patterns. The results show that it is possible to detect changes in the flow velocity patterns and the local solids concentration, as the operational conditions of the separator are varied. Of the factors studied, the drum rotational speed has the strongest influence on the overall flow velocity in the dewatering zone. Also, the presence of a recirculating flow transporting gangue particles away from the concentrate is confirmed. The factor with the strongest influence on this recirculating flow is also the drum rotational speed, together with the magnet assembly angle. Using this method it is possible to make high quality measurements of internal flow velocity profiles. It is also possible to monitor material build-up on the separator drum, and e.g. detect overload of magnetic material. The insights gained, and the methods developed, have generated new possibilities to control, optimise, and develop the wet LIMS process.

Abstract [en]

Ultrasound based flow measurement methods have a large potential for the mining industry and its processing plants. Ultrasound travel through dense suspensions and is not affected by the magnetic fields sometimes present in this type of equipment.A cross-correlation based method is used for localized particle velocity measurements in one and two dimensions. Simultaneously, using the same data, information about local particle concentration is extracted from the power spectral density of the backscattered signal. Experiments are carried out both in simplified geometry and in full scale equipment in an iron ore pilot benefication plant.In the simple geometry it is possible to assess the precision of the methods by comparing the measurements to theory and numerical simulations. The results from the pilot plant experiments show that these methods can be applied to real world processes

Abstract [en]

This paper presents an ultrasonic pulse-echo technique for on-line monitoring of variations in solids concentrations in particlesuspensions. The method is based on time-frequency analysis of the backscatter signals, exploring variations in spectral content ofthe backscatter as function of depth in the suspension. Experiments on a settling of magnetite particles in water, at varying solidsconcentrations, show that the settling process can be followed by studying the energy of backscattered ultrasound.

Abstract [en]

Modelling the pulp fluid and its simultaneous interactions with both the charge and the mill structure is an interesting challenge. The interactions have previously been modelled for dry grinding with a combination of discrete element method (DEM), smoothed particle hydrodynamics (SPH) and the finite element method (FEM), where the DEM particles or SPH particles represent the grinding balls and FEM is used to model the mill structure. In this work, the previous model is extended to include fluids with SPH. Wet milling with water and a magnetite pulp, for graded and mono-size charges are numerically modelled and validated. The internal working of the charge and the physical interaction between the charge and the mill structure is studied. The combined SPH–DEM–FEM model presented here can predict the classical DEM results, but can also predict responses from the mill structure, as well as the pulp liquid flow and pressure. Validation is conducted by comparing numerical results with experimental measurements from grinding in an instrumented small-scale batch ball mill equipped with an accurate torque metre. The simulated charge movement is also compared with high speed video of the charge movement for a number of cases. Numerical results are in good agreement with experimental measurements
