Webinar overview

  1. A PowerPoint type presentation covering:
    • What is sensor-based particle sorting?
    • The history and development of the technology
    • Comparisons to other technologies including screening, bulk/belt sorting…
    • What minerals does it work on?
    • Mechanical platforms
    • Sensors
    • Sorter setup and classification
  2. Then a real demo in the test centre using the full capacity sorter. 1 tonne of material – full video coverage
  3. Analysis and discussion of sorted fractions including macro video of rocks and minerals n product and waste fractions.
  4. Q&A
