Highest Weighing Accuracy
Weighing plays an important role in metal mining, such as for exact precious metal content determination using the well-established gravimetric fire assay or for weighing-in large amounts of ore samples. METTLER TOLEDO balances are highly reliable and offer high-precision weighing both in the lab and when working under harsh and dusty mining conditions.
Reliable Heavy Duty Weighing
Incoming raw ore or refined metals are easily weighed with METTLER TOLEDO’s innovative and reliable heavy duty weighing solutions. Whether transporting the recovered materials by truck or on conveyers, METTLER TOLEDO offers the ideal scales to meet every demand.
Extraction & Concentration
Exact and Robust Process Monitoring
Process monitoring in mines demands robust and reliable solutions. In-line measurement solutions from METTLER TOLEDO master even the most demanding conditions of temperature or pressure optimizing process quality and throughput. Our solutions include several types of sensors, transmitters, housings and cleaning systems.
Purification & Finishing
Optimize Production with Just One Click
Titration is a quantitative analytical method used to determine metal content at various process stages in order to improve the leaching process or minimize chemical consumption in purification. METTLER TOLEDO’s One Click™ Titration Solutions provide accurate results at the touch of a finger.
Convenient and Accurate Regulus Weighing
With our Micro and Ultra Micro Balance, characterized by low repeatability and short stabilization time, weighing of precious metal samples for fire assay becomes reliable and fast. A specially designed funnel set allows accurate weighing of even the smallest samples, such as prill and regulus, in a very short time.
Reduced Rail Car Weighing Time
Weighing coupled railroad cars is time consuming as each car needs to be positioned for weighing. Thanks to the coupled in-motion rail scale and the IND9R86 rails scale controller coupling and uncoupling of rail cars becomes obsolete. Weighing occurs precisely whilst cars are moving at 3 – 5 mph, which is much faster and safer than static weighing.
Sensors that Last
The rugged design and solid manufacture of METTLER TOLEDO’s sensors brings durability and increased resistance to even the most demanding situations. Furthermore, the Intelligent Sensor Management (ISM) technology reduces installation, maintenance and calibration efforts to a minimum.
Increase Productivity in Metals Determination
Only One Click™ on the titrator’s touch screen is required to run a titration analysis for metals. Thanks to this, anyone in the lab can carry out titrations even without long training sessions. Determine up to 60 samples simultaneously with the Rondo Sample Changer and increase productivity.
Simple Density Determination of Liquids Within Seconds
The density of lubricants, oils or process chemicals are tested to ensure reliable mining processes. The LiquiPhysics™ Benchtop Density Meters with their rugged design and ErgoSense™ for touch free operation, provide safe and quick measurements, even for untrained operators.LiquiPhysics™ Benchtop Density MetersPlay the LiquiPhysics™ Excellence Game
QC Lab & Process development
Precise Instruments for an Efficient Laboratory
Stringent quality control for the exact adherence of product specifications is now possible thanks to top performing density meters, particle size- and infrared sensors and sophisticated software solutions.
Simple and Efficient Sample Handling
Tare containers of all shapes and sizes can be securely positioned on the XP and XS balances with ErgoClips – the special tare container holder. This allows direct dosing of precious samples into the desired vessel minimizing sample loss.
Precise weighing of flowing material
METTLER TOLEDO offers a full range of load cells, weighing sensors and weighing modules, which enable the quick and safe conversion of a conveyor system into a scale.
Robust and Flexible Transmitters
Transmitters are an integral part of on-line measurement systems and are used to monitor industrial processes. A wide range of transmitters for diverse applications link the sensors securely to the process control system ensuring highest operation safety. The full diagnostic capability eliminates errors safely and quickly.
Reliable Wastewater Treatment in Mines
pH and ORP measurements to monitor cyanide decomposition requires rugged and solid sensors. The InPro4010 with its internal temperature sensor provides accurate temperature reading and compensation in one single unit. The plastic body makes this a rugged sensor with reliable performance.
Optimize Flocculation and Sedimentations
Flocculation is a common separation technique in mining industries and its effectiveness influences downstream separation, settling, flotation and purification. With In Situ Particle System Characterization, floc distribution can be measured in-line and in real time at full process concentrations without sampling.
Maintenance & Repair
We serve our customers around the globe, even in the remotest areas. A global service network provides technical support, maintenance and repairs in a short response time. Safety and uptime of your operational processes are our priority.

Precision Balances Defy Dust
Weighing in dusty mine environments places high demands on the equipment used. With the XP Excellence Precision Balances, classified according to IP54 safety class, METTLER TOLEDO offers a balance that is perfectly equipped to withstand dust and water and consistently produce accurate weighing results.
Bring Back Accuracy and Increase Profit
With our easy to install conversion kits, worn scales can easily be upgraded to return accuracy and reliability. Moreover, vehicle scale failures and unplanned repair costs can virtually be eliminated when using Powercell® load cells. Their built-in diagnostics feature monitors performance and detects problems well in advance.
Sensor Exchange Anytime
Process interruption for cleaning sensors costs time and money. Retractable housings from METTLER TOLEDO, available in a variety of models, allow the easy and safe insertion and withdrawal of sensors without interruption of the ongoing process. The housings also protect the sensor against abrasive solids in the process medium which enhances their life time.
Manage Filtration Perfectly
In-line turbidity measurement with METTLER TOLEDO measurement solutions is ideal for monitoring filtering. Thanks to forward and back scattered light sensors, METTLER TOLEDO turbidity sensors are best suited to detect filter breakthrough and hence prevent product loss.
Sophisticated Software Solutions
LabX software securely manages the entire application from beginning to end. The software guides the user through the whole process, calculates results, generates customized reports and finally stores everything on a central server. Exactly the same method can be used for all instruments via the network and analysis data can easily be monitored from any office.
