Temperature and pressure instruments for metal and mineral extracting or processing operations

Applications of Measurement and Monitoring Technology

The metal and mineral industry encompasses numerous processes—ranging from resource extraction to raw material processing—many of which rely on precise and accurate pressure and temperature conditions. Industry professionals often employ measuring and monitoring technology—e.g., temperature and pressure instruments—to ensure operating parameters in extraction and processing equipment remain at optimal levels for the greatest effectiveness and efficiency.

Our pressure and temperature instrument solutions are found in a wide range of extraction and processing equipment and systems for metals and minerals, including: 

Mining water treatment equipment and systems for measuring and controlling conditions in water level monitoring, treatment, and recycling operations

Importance of Measurement and Monitoring Technology for the Metal and Mineral Industry

There are many reasons to integrate measurement and monitoring technology into metal and mineral extracting and processing equipment, such as:

  • Better compliance with regulatory requirements. Metal and mineral industry operations are highly regulated to ensure operator and environmental safety. Temperature and pressure instruments help machine operators keep operating parameters in check.
  • Greater operational effectiveness/efficiency. Measuring and monitoring technology provides an assessment of system performance. By tracking these values, industry professionals can identify if and when system modifications are required to improve performance and productivity.
  • Larger cost savings. Sensors monitor system conditions (e.g., temperature, pressure, and flow levels). Switches initiate an appropriate system response if and when the sensors detect a problem. Together, these instruments catch problems before they become bigger, resulting in a lower risk of component or system damage and, consequently, less money spent on repair and replacement costs and lost due to downtime.
