Abstract [en]

The active radio frequency identification (RFID) technique is used for in-situ measurement of acceleration and temperature in the distribution chain of iron ore pellets. The results of this paper are based on two experiments, in which active RFID transponders were released into train wagons or product bins. RFID exciters and readers were installed downstream in a harbour storage silo to retrieve data from the active transponders. Acceleration peaks and temperatures were recorded. The results imply that in-situ data can aid the understanding of induced stresses along the distribution chain to, for example, reduce pellet breakage and dusting. In-situ data can also increase understanding of product mixing behaviour and product residence times in silos. Better knowledge of stresses, product mixing and residence times are beneficial to process and product quality improvement, to better understand the transportation process, and to reduce environmental impacts due to dusting.
