TT he APIC underbed air-pulsed jig effectively produces clean saleable products

from raw materials by separating particles of different densities. It can now be

equipped with JigScan to further enhance performance and ease of operation.

JigScan is a fully integrated and PLC-based automatic jig control system which:

reduces or eliminates much of the operator attention needed for efficient operation of a jig;

provides improved control over product quality;

provides higher yields of ‘on-specification’ product;

automatically raises an alarm if separation efficiency drops; and

automatically sequences start-ups and shut-downs to optimise production.

JigScan has been used industrially with great success in the coal, ferrous ores and wastes industries. It is supplied exclusively with new APIC Jigs.

How JigScan works

PP articles of different densities in a homogeneous bed of solid material are stratified by water

pulsed through the jig’s bed plate. JigScan ensures that optimal stratification, steady product quality and highest possible yields are obtained by:

Maintaining a steady water-pulse shape even when the feed or throughput of material changes

Adjusting the pulsing energy function of the bed mass

Closely controlling the discharge of heavy material from the stratified bed.

Every time JigScan’s powerful high scan frequency PLC system reads the jig’s sensors, it issues algorithm-based control commands. The system can control the jigging air pressure, the opening and closing times of the valves, the average water levels in the air chambers and the density cut-point at the jig discharge gate. A measurement and graphical display can be provided of the water and air pressures in the jig, the variation of air pressure and the water velocity pulse waveform in each compartment and the variation of bed density during each pulse at a chosen position above the bed plate.

APIC Jig / JigScan development

TT he APIC Jig is the key equipment around which the BATEMAN process for coal cleaning,

upgrading of ores and recovery of metal from slag is based. The jig was initially designed and produced by FCB in France, and is now part of the BATEMAN range of products. Over decades it has been developed and proven in industry and represents the current state-of-the-art in jigging technology. The JigScan jig control systems are the result of 15 years of development by JKMRC, and are now sold exclusively by BATEMAN.

BATEMAN and its partners

BB ATEMAN entered into a partnership with other leading organisations and experts in jigging so as to bring the best possible solution to the

client. This partnership collaborates fully in the development of jigging technology and offers jigs with various levels of control, depending upon

client requirements and the type of materials to be treated.

BATEMAN is a process engineering and project management company with a significant track record in the design and construction of specialised equipment and production plants for coal washing, the upgrading of ores and the recovery of metal from slag using gravity-separation techniques. It acquires new technologies while improving its own technology and promotes complementary relationships in order to maintain a competitive advantage.

Mintek, South Africa’s national minerals-research organisation, works with industry and other research organisations worldwide to research, develop and implement new and improved technologies in the minerals and metallurgical sectors. Many advances in extraction, refining and manufacturing technology that originated in South Africa have been successfully exported and Mintek has become an international player in this field.

JKMRC (the Julius Kruttschnitt Mineral Research Centre) is an internationally renowned self-funded research institute and consulting organisation in The University of Queensland. It works closely with the mining industry in Australia and overseas to develop and apply new knowledge in mining and in mineral and coal processing. It has for many years been a world leader in the application of modelling and computer simulation to mineral process design and optimisation.
