X-ray luminescence sorter LS-OD-6

Sorter LS-OD-6 is designed for pre-final and final treatment of dry concentrate with grain size – 5 + 2 and – 2 + 1.

The sorter operation concept is based on the use of diamonds’ property of luminescence under X-ray impact and on the difference of those properties with diamonds and associate luminescent minerals. The mode under reference term “luminiscence and absorption” when the X-ray tube and photo detectors are located on both sides of the material flow is implemented. The effect of difference in X-ray absorption by diamonds and associate luminescent minerals is used.

The sorter includes a sorting machine (SM) and an automated control rack (ACR).
