What we do

We measure iron-ore piles

Konker measures hundreds of tons of ore sustainably, innovatively, and accurately, regardless of weather conditions.

The solution works around the clock and with 97% accuracy, measuring mass, volume, density, and quality of iron ore – as a pile.

The measured information feeds the mining company’s production line, enabling strategic decision-making based on factors, sometimes invisible, such as empty spaces inside a pile, and the quality of the raw material.

Muons – The solution

The solution was built by attenuation of the flux of muons (elementary electron-like particles), of cosmic radiation, that passes through the iron-ore pile.

Our device measures the flow and direction of the arriving particles and enables us to map and integrate the specifics of a pile in the value chain and the IT Processes of the mining companies.

The solution is replicable for any mining company that wants to make a sustainable and innovative measurement of mass and density of ore piles.
