COALSCAN 2100 is the latest generation of Scantech’s DUET ash gauges and incorporates over 40 years of accumulated operational experience gained since COALSCANs were first developed. Major improvements in electronics, software and efficiencies have resulted in significantly reduced price but at vastly superior performance.
When combined with a TBM Microwave module, the COALSCAN 2100 can provide Moisture and Calorific Value.
Earlier models of the COALSCAN 2100 were the COALSCAN 2500 and COALSCAN 2800.
The optional SuperScan output display system is available or the results may be displayed on the plant process control system. The very high speed response of the COALSCAN 2100 makes it suitable for such applications as sorting (bypass) and run of mine monitoring, as well as product monitoring.
COALSCAN 2100 still rates as the premium product globally in terms of combined performance, reliability and value for money for this technology. The original and best with the benefits of recent enhancements!
"When commodity prices were strong and rising, mining companies could afford minor inefficiencies in their plants. That is rarely the case in these days of lower-grade deposits, lower metal prices and economic pressure from every direction. “We have to do better with lower costs,” said Philip Thwaites, manager of process control for XPS Consulting & Testwork Services. “If you’re not efficient, you’re not going to be around. And our industry can be a lot more efficient.” According to Thwaites, measurement is the cornerstone of control and efficiency. “If you have a poor measurement, or no measurement, you can’t do good control,” he explained. But this is changing. More and more mining companies are conscious of improved measurements and endorsing control, automation and next-generation technologies. What is more, there has been significant progress in automated instruments recently. These measure crucial parameters in the processing circuit and equipment to allow operators to monitor and adjust process control as needed."
