Abstract

Homogenization yard is used for holding dust ore and ore concentrates. The raw materials for agglomeration are transported to the industry premises usually by railway and with help of spreader machine are stored on so called homogenization yards. The goal of this article is not the description of homogenization yard function, but describe proposed method to estimate its actual proportions and capacity. Proposed system usage several cameras, which convert real image of homogenization yard to its digital form. Used algorithm is then capable to estimate its proportions, shape and capacity. This information is accessible online, so there are only a few seconds difference concerning real state. Up to date informations can increase effectiveness of logistic processes concerning blast furnace raw material base control and also homogenization yards loading.
