Main benefits

Improves milling productivity

Ensures correct fragmentation to be properly prepared for the extraction process and downstream activities, such as mining, crushing and milling.

Gets a key D&B step right

Correct fragmentation means easier digging, reduced shovel cycle times, reduced rework and less oversize causing downtime at the crusher.

The Split advantage

Measures particle-size distributions from mine-to-mill, to manage blast design, optimize fragmentation, and increase productivity and profits.

Fragmentation analysis expands your life-of-mine vision

Hexagon Split’s image processing technology delivers high-quality information that enables you to manage your processes from drill to mill and improve mine profits.

 

  • Split-ConveyorCam for primary crusher, secondary, tertiary, pebble crusher and screen decks provides an online measurement of the particle size distribution information for any conveyor belt location.
  • Split-TruckCam measures in real time the PSD of post-blasted rock delivered to the primary crusher, effectively and efficiently managing the transition from pit to plant.
  • Split-ShovelCam monitors shovels, conveyor belts and truck tips into the primary crusher in real time to deliver the key metric of particle size, quantifying post-blast fragmentation.
  • Split-Desktop delivers manual, off-line coarse rock fragmentation size analysis of muck piles, leach pads and more.
  • Split-Net leverages experienced personnel to process your images for you and provides a size distribution report.
  • Split-FX is a point-cloud processing software that provides geotechnical analysis using modern 3D imaging technologies.

Post-blast muckpile images captured, processed in real time

Immediate feedback to the mine on blast performance; feed forward to the plant on what is coming from the mine; correlation of PSD to shovel maintenance and enhanced process control decisions; the only place to measure run-of-mine leach ore.

Run-of-mine material from haul trucks captured, processed

Automatic and real-time feedback to the mine on blast performance; feed forward to the plant on what is coming from the mine; correlation of PSD to operational performance and enhanced process control decisions.

Image processing for any conveyor belt or feeder location

Continuous, automatic, non-invasive monitoring system employing image processing technology for particle size, shape and color for any conveyor belt or feeder location. Immediate feedback to crushing, screening, and milling in the comminution circuit.
