Port Integrated Systems

IMP has designed and delivered a number of port integrated systems where the laboratories used for entire process from sampling to analysis and cargo certification is fully automated. IMP's port integrated systems has provided solutions for time based sampling as well as mass based sampling.


The process of drying, splitting, particle size determination, moisture determination and chemical analysis is automated by port integrated systems. Bulk composites are also produced through port integrated systems.


In the case of iron ore sampling, for example, primary cuts of up to one ton are taken. Each cut is split within the sampling system to produce a sample for the automated laboratory. A portion representing each primary cut is transported automatically to the robotic laboratory via a conveyor system or using IMP’s monorail sample transport system.


These aliquots are composited and split to produce sub lots. Particle size analyses and moisture are determined on each sub lot. Some clients carry out sub lot chemical analysis while others analyse the final composite.


The entire process complies with the guidelines of ISO3082.


IMP has provided these port integrated system laboratory facilities on a turnkey basis. Our clients include Anglo American (Kumba), Fortescue Metals, Rio Tinto (Cape Lambert) and Roy Hill. Designs vary from single robot cells to multiple robots operating on a track.


Automating the entire process from sampling to analysis results in the fastest possible turnaround times of analytical assay, significant improvements in accuracy and precision and much improved operational health and safety.
