Mining & Resources

Mining and quarries are asset-heavy operations, utilising a balanced combination of heavy machinery and measuring solutions to achieve a consistent quality and quantity of product. Every facility adheres to a set of processes specific to the resources or minerals it produces. SRO Technology specialises in designing, configuring, installing and maintaining a wide variety of mining instrumentation solutions, from belt scales to density gauges. Our personnel understand industry- and process-specific needs and are therefore capable of delivering custom, effective mining solutions.

SRO Technology has the knowledge and experience to install, calibrate, repair and service industrial measurement solutions. Our experts approach projects with the attitude that instruments can either make or break operations. The accuracy of a plant’s measuring systems will ultimately dictate its ability to run at an optimal level.

The Instruments the Mining, Quarry & Industrial plants depend on

Our understanding of process-specific needs has enabled SRO Technology to provide clients the correct measurement solutions. For example, the recommended configuration settings for belt scales at recycling plants differs considerably from those at steel production plants. Listed below are just a few out of many devices we can optimise for companies participating in the industrial sector:

Belt Scales & Weightometers

Belt scales and weightometers measure the weight of the material passing along conveyor belts, and allow facility managers to gather data applicable to production rates.

Impact weighers and Flowmeters

Impact weighers and Flowmeters allow Sand and gravel plants to mix different materials to make products specific to particular constructions. The proper mixing and blending of water, cement, sand and gravel is imperative, which makes flow meters equally essential. Such instruments help plant managers control how much of specific materials are processed.

Density gauges

Density gauges measure the exact density of a slurry or fluid in real time. Often used in dredging, processing and coal handling plants, they use ultrasonic and gamma technologies to generate readings.

Weigh Feeders

Weigh feeders ensure that hoppers distribute the appropriate amount of material into processing equipment. While some feeders are better suited to hoppers, others are purpose-built for augers.

Tramp metal detectors

Tramp metal detectors are placed before heavy machinery such as jaw or cone crushers. Located on conveyor belts, they detect unwanted metal to ensure miscellaneous items neither compromise product quality nor damage expensive equipment.
