There is a resurgent demand for nickel due to its use in electric car batteries, yet it can be a challenge to accurately conduct density measurement in nickel mining operations.
What makes measuring nickel density tricky is that the metal is often found in a muddy paste. The mud-like substance is later pumped around the plant and refined. Once any waste has been removed, a density measurement needs to be taken of the liquid that remains.
Accurate density measurement in nickel mining not only ensures that order volumes are met, but to also avoid any inaccurate readings that can lead to costly damage of equipment.
