Leaching gold with cyanide is the most common method of gold recovery from ores and requires precise electrochemical control of a number of reagents. Alkaline environments are a must for safety; incorrect pH control can cause over-use of reagents and create highly dangerous process environments with the evolution of Hydrogen Cyanide. We have supplied accurate, long life sensors for pH, ORP and cyanide into numerous gold processing facilities throughout Australia, Asia and Africa for almost 25 years.
Every process has its own specific challenges, and the ability to customise our sensors depending on specific ores has meant that we get the highest level of accuracy and the longest lifetimes in any gold mining environment. Dissolved gas resistance, cyanide-resistant, tough pH glass elements and customisable body plastics are just some of the solutions we have come up with over the years. This popular sensor configuration utilises our superior, slurry resistant RADEL body plastics which provide extra durability in high impact and high abrasion environments. The 3/4" thread on the front end provides a quick and convenient means to install directly inline, or alternatively utilise the 1" MNPT back-end connection to install onto an immersion rod or standpipe. The high capacity triple junction polypropylene reference provides exceptional resistance to sulphides and other dissolved gasses.
This sensor is available with our digital smart sensor technology. This plug and play sensor has a quick connect fitting, eliminating the need for hard wiring to the analyser. Onboard sensor memory allows the storage of calibration data, analyser configurations and sensor service history. This allows the sensor to be conveniently maintained and calibrated off-site or in the laboratory and pre-programmed with calibration data and analyser configurations. This stored information automatically uploads to the analyser upon connection and eliminates the need for any interaction with the analyser, greatly simplifying the change-out of sensors. A service log stored on the sensors is ideal for maintenance and quality assurance records.
