LTM Probes in Flotation
Banks, Tanks, Columns and Sumps

LTM probes are typically installed in flotation banks, individual flotation cells or in columns and sumps to provide consistent accurate pulp level measurement. The conductive LTM pulp level monitoring probe technology dramatically reduces the complication of slurry level interface monitoring under a wide range of froth and flotation conditions.

Economical Benefits

  • No moving parts
  • Increased recoveries (payback can be weeks)
  • Consistent concentrate grades (lower shipping costs, increased NSR)
  • Lower housekeeping issues from tank overflow
  • No bracket maintenance necessary
  • Consistent plant stability

Customer Experiences and feedback

  • Reliable signals
  • Consistently accurate pulp level detection
  • Good readings even with solids buildup (buildup has no influence on measuring results)
  • Circuit stability: less pulp level fluctuation, less surging
  • Ease of maintenance
