Mining talks - instrumentation series EP3: 'Dampening the measuring signals for process control'

Posted on Wednesday, 25 August 2021 at 10:14

In the third episode of our series "Mining talks - instrumentation series", we interviewed Daniel Rioux, who is an instrumentation technologist at a nickel mining operation in Sudbury, Ontario, Canada.

In this third episode of our 'Mining Talks Instrumentation series' we talk about the pros and cons of dampening the measuring signals for process control with Daniel Rioux (instrumentation technologist). Daniel tells Frank (marketing, Rhosonics) that it is important to have a minimum amount of dampening, because too much dampening of the signal makes it hard to make the correct control actions. At the same time, a little bit of averaging or dampening of the signal is advised to avoid unnecessary reactions to process noise.
