SPARTA Particle Size Analyser

The particle Size Analyser (PSA) solution provides real time automated analysis of particle size distribution on the conveyor belt, with interface capability to almost any devise or system.


The PSA (Particle Size Analyser) features a camera with onboard ultra-fast processing power to analyse the product on the conveyor at a suitable point in the process. Illumination of the material enables the camera to capture crisp images of the product to suit all conveyor belt requirements. The cameras image grabbing technology and inherent built in intelligence performs accelerated inspections such as presence, absence, defect detection, shape analysis, particle size and many more real time functions.


The prime objective is to increase the processing efficiency in the comminution circuit. Particle size has a critical impact on various aspects of the process and on the process efficiency and, therefore, its measurement is of key importance. By being able to monitor the particle size on-line this will allow valuable minerals to be extracted in subsequent downstream processes.

On-line Analysis Benefits

  • Liberation of minerals downstream
  • Energy efficiency
  • Control excessive reagent use
  • Filtration and thickening capacity
  • Tailings disposal
  • Useful information for automated control
  • Realtime process behaviour


The Way Forward
