Abstract: In-Stream Analysis (ISA) systems have been installed in many mineral processing plants world-wide and some of the Amdel systems have been operating successfully for more than 16 years. This paper discusses recent developments in Amdel ISA technology with particular emphasis on the diversification into new applications. The successful application of ISA instrumentation in the dynamic environment of pilot plant operations is discussed. The modular design and ease of rapid calibration, typically within 48 hours of start-up, makes the Amdel ISA system ideally suited for both simple and complex flowsheet pilot plant operations. The development by the CSIRO of a voidage ISA probe, which basically measures the aeration of slurries, means that the system can be used to accurately monitor the %ash and %solids content of coal slurries. The Coal Slurry Analysis (CSA) system provides the means of controlling the process in coal preparation plants.
