Non-Contacting Flow Solution for Heap Leach Mining - Case Study
How do you measure the flow rate of a highly corrosive solution in a partially full pipe?
Minera Escondida, the world's largest single producer of copper, was faced with this challenge in their heap leaching process in the Atacama Desert of northern Chile. Finding an accurate, reliable non-contacting flow meter was a difficult. But Greyline Instruments developed a unique area-velocity flow meter to fully meet the mine's needs.
