Fragmentation Analysis


Comminution accounts for ~53% of mine site energy consumption, so optimizing blast parameters presents significant opportunities for productivity improvements. This white paper explains how ShovelMetrics™ and PortaMetrics™ work in concert to improve blasting parameters for efficient comminution.

In this article you will understand:

  • How an opencast coal mine in Canada used ShovelMetrics™ to reduce powder factor by 11% (5.7 millions kgs) for a total savings of over CDN$10 million.

  • How PortaMetrics™ complements ShovelMetrics™ as part of a comprehensive fragmentation analysis solution.

  • Why more than 80 mines across six continents trust Motion Metrics to deliver the data they need to improve their bottom line.
