PASTE BACKFILL MONITOR

DESCRIPTION

RST’s Paste Backfill Monitors are used in mine paste backfill to achieve improved extraction and to increase safety. They provide useful engineering feedback to allow paste and stope design to be optimized.

A typical Paste Backfill Monitor consists of 3 or more vibrating wire total stress sensors (orthogonal), 1 vibrating wire piezometer to measure pore water pressure, a biaxial tiltmeter and optional magnetic compass to measure “as-placed” orientation, matric suction and volumetric water content sensors, and conductivity sensors. A compact and sturdy stainless steel frame surrounds the unit and is designed to withstand the rigors of installation.

Because stope geometries vary depending on the mining situation, Paste Backfill Monitors are typically customized for the situation, including orientation sensors for suspended placements, different pressure sensor ranges depending on geometry, extra total stress sensors for a more complete stress tensor etc.

All sensors are connected to a single, Kevlar® reinforced, multi-conductor cable that can be extended outside the mining area for remote data acquisition.

QUICK SPECS

Durable, compact design for excellent portability and field installation.


Customized options (at time of ordering) to suit various project parameters.


Ideal for use with RST’s flexDAQ data loggers.


Compatible with bulkhead Total Pressure Cells, Deformation Sensors.

APPLICATIONS

For underground mines, in mine paste, where a need for improved extraction and increased safety measures are required.


Feedback to allow paste and stope design to be optimized.

BENEFITS

Increase Productivity


High Accuracy


High Reliability
