Mipac ShortMeter™

Increase productivity in your tankhouse

Managing operations at a mineral processing plant presents a constant juggle of pressures. Tankhouse managers are challenged with reducing costs, maximising the use of resources and tools to increase productivity, as well as improving the quality of production.

Automating key processes in your tankhouse operations can help you greatly improve the performance of your whole plant.

Through simple, practical technologies that monitor, control and automate key aspects of the electro-refining and electro-winning process, you can achieve significant increases in your overall productivity and profitability.

Detect shorts quickly and easily

Our ShortMeter is a hand-held, easy-to-use monitor that enables quick and easy detection of short circuits and dead plates in an electrolytic tankhouse operation.

A low cost and low maintenance device, the ShortMeter will help you increase productivity, improve production quality and ultimately, grow your profit margins.

The device operates on the Hall Effect principle for magnetic field detection. It detects short circuits by monitoring the magnetic field strength directly above a shorting plate and presents results instantly in a hand-held LED display.

The LED display highlights strong shorts, less severe shorts and dead plates, illuminating accordingly. The more lights that illuminate, the more severe the short. Similarly, a decrease in the number of LEDs illuminated will normally indicate a ‘dead’ plate that’s carrying low current.

Cost effective and low maintenance.

Easy setup and maintenance.

Simple, ergonomic design.

Scanning is made quick and easy with the light-weight, hand-held device.

Visual LED display.

The ShortMeter’s display instantly indicates fault severity with an array of 10 LEDs, arranged as a bar graph, to help your operator to quickly locate short circuits and dead plates.

Optional test station.

You can check operability through the use of a simple testing station.
