WO/2016/179715 MONITORING SYSTEM FOR ANTICIPATING DANGEROUS CONDITIONS DURING THE TRANSPORTATION OF A CARGO OVER LAND||WO||17.11.2016|
||PCT/CL2015/000034||GONZÁLEZ MÉNDEZ, Pedro Renato||GONZÁLEZ MÉNDEZ, Pedro Renato|
The invention relates to a monitoring system for anticipating dangerous conditions during the transportation of a cargo over land, comprising a device and method for the detection and reporting of instability and the risk of tipping of a cargo. The invention measures, registers and analyses the physical dynamics of a cargo transported over land, and generates anticipatory alarms specific to conditions of risk of instability and of tipping associated with the route via which a vehicle is travelling. These alarms, generated by the measuring equipment, are displayed in the cabin of the vehicle itself so that the driver can perform actions to reduce the condition of risk, and accidents or conditions of risk are thereby prevented. This technology has a modular configuration and permits the installation thereof in any vehicle.
WO/2016/179718 AGGLOMERATION DRUM FOR PRE-TREATING MINERALS||WO||17.11.2016|
||PCT/CL2016/050023||K+S CHILE S.A.||ENGDAHL TOLEDO, Oscar|
The present invention relates to an agglomeration drum and to a mineral agglomeration method performed inside the drum for, pre-treating minerals, both used principally in hydrometallurgy. The drum and method use a gas recirculation system and a gas recirculation step as part of the invention. Furthermore, the agglomeration method includes the process of chemical reactions that occur inside the agglomeration drum. The agglomeration drum, the agglomeration method and the reactive process allow uniform, stable agglomerates having low degradability and a greater contact surface between the reagent and the agglomerate, to be obtained. The uniform agglomerates produced in the agglomeration drum and in accordance with the method of the invention, increase the extraction yield of the subsequent leaching process, reducing the creation of preferential pathways of the leaching solution in leaching heaps. Additionally, the drum and method of the invention prevent the release of gases into the atmosphere, having a gas recirculation system which, when sealed, keeps the gases within the agglomeration drum and the process. This gas recirculation not only prevents the release of the gases into the atmosphere, but also reduces operational costs, since the recirculated gases are used as part of the agglomeration process.
