Abstract [en]

This article describes how active radio frequency identification (RFID) technique can be used to measure accelerations and temperature that iron ore pellets endure along parts of their distribution chain. Increased knowledge about the accelerations and temperature can help the mining company reduce pellets breakage and dusting. In this work we have studied the distribution chain between the pelletizing plant and the harbour. The article reports on two experiments with active RFID transponders released into the product flow after the pelletizing plant. The transponders measured the temperature and peak accelerations. Transponder data were then captured by RFID readers in the harbour. The results show that active RFID technique can be used for in-situ measurements of accelerations and temperature in the pellets distribution chain although further research is needed to study the segregation behaviour of the active transponders
