Remote non-destructive elemental analysis for various applications:
- ore sampling in situ without sample preparation
- elemental composition control of the ore on the conveyor
- explosives detection inside large shipping containers
- non-distructive diamonds within the kimberlite ore without destroying it
by tagged neutron method
How does it work:Explain in 5 minutes
The operation principle of tagged neutron method (TNM)
In June 2021, trial operation of the AGP-K-1 flow analyzer began at sinter plant No. 2 of the coke-sintering blast furnace production of PJSC Severstal (Cherepovets). The analyzer determines the elemental composition of the sinter mixture in real time, without sampling.
In September 2021, operation of the AGP-K-2 flow analyzer began at the underground mine of the Oleniy Ruchey mining and processing enterprise of North-West Physics Plant JSC. An elemental analysis of apatite-nepheline ore moving along the conveyor is being carried out. Every 40-60 seconds, data on the concentrations of Al, Ca, C, Fe, Mg, Na, P, Si, Ti, and the corresponding oxides is provided.
