Real-time online dissolved copper monitoring solution was tested both in laboratory and in field conditions at FQML Pyhäsalmi mine, where the solution was integrated to EHP-Environmental buoy. Tests were conducted in summer 2017.
The purpose of this research was to understand the uncertainty factors affecting the dissolved copper monitoring and the reliability of the monitoring. Measuring ranges in the study were 4-20 ppb and 20-200 ppb.
This validation research was done as part of the EnviMon project (Environmental Metal Monitoring Solution for Heavy Industries, www.envimon.com).
