Abstract: An image analysis system for extracting on-line quantitative geometric and densitometric information from images of ore samples is described. The apparatus employs a pulsed semiconductor laser as the light source for illuminating of a flowing stream of particles and a non-interlaced solid-state TV camera as size measurement device in a shadowgraph imaging system. The problem of the sampling volume is discussed and several size distributions of solid particulates are presented. The particle size measurement range is 2-400 mum.
