RTD (Residence Time Distribution) measurement in the Mill

DAMA carries out RTD measurement. In a continuous system such as grinding mill, RTD of the system is very important and it determines the size of the grinding product. RTD is the input parameter in designing a continuous reactor (such as mill). However, the measurement of the RTD requires an experimental effort in the plant.  In typical grinding circuit experiments, RTD measurements are done by injecting tracer material into the mill inlet and detecting it in the circuit exit. Then analyzing the concentration of the tracer in the mill exit gives the residence time distribution of the system.
