Peruvian Mine Purchases the Largest CiDRA Flowmeter in Peru


CiDRA Minerals Processing Inc. announced today that Southern Copper Company’s Cuajone mine in Peru has awarded CiDRA a contract to supply, install, start-up and commission a 48” diameter SONARtrac flowmeter, the largest to be installed in Peru. The system is required to measure water flow in one of the plant’s principal feed lines. Including the two systems that were recently installed in a mine in Northern Chile, Cuajone becomes the second client in South America that has chosen SONARtrac technology for their large diameter water feed lines, mainly due to the growing need to monitor flow rates and thereby improve the water balance, in compliance with internal company regulations.
