FIELD: minerals dressing.

SUBSTANCE: the offered inventions concern to dressing of minerals, in particular, to dressing of a ground mineral material. The technical result of the inventions is improved selectivity of separation of a source material by a choice of efficient way of separation and elimination of an effect of noises of a channel of registration and instability of the excitation system operation; improved automatic adjustment of the registration and excitation systems, reduction of an amount of used hardware and the time necessary for performance of the prestarting inspection and also provision of the automatic prestarting and periodic inspection and an increase of its reliability. For this purpose the separator contains means of delivery and transportation of the source material in a zone of inspection; a source of an exciting radiation; a photo-receiving device, and means of treatment of a signal of the luminescence including an analog-digital converter (ADC), a unit of the random-access memory (RAM), a register of a separation threshold and a microprocessor. In addition the separator is supplied with a register of delay and a synchronizer, the first output of which is connected to the input of the analog-digital converter start; the second output is connected to the input of the RAM; and its third output - with the input of the record of the microprocessor. The reading inputs of the random-access memory, the register of a threshold and the register of delay are connected accordingly to the first, second and third outputs of the microprocessor. The method of control over operation of the separator is based on a periodic use of its indicators in absence of a separated material for registration of intensity of their luminescence. In the capacity of an indicator they choose the air filling the volume of the separator, in the capacity of the way of separation - the normalized autocorrelation function (NACF) of a luminescence signal. At that they normalize the value of the NACF signal of the luminescence by its division by the result of integration of a square of a registered signal of a luminescence. Determine a threshold of separation equal to a threshold set at operation in a mode of separation. The value of the parameter of separation they choose so, that the value of NACF at the chosen value of the parameter exceeded the threshold.

FIELD: woodworking industry; production of multilayer wood materials, plywood or layered materials.

SUBSTANCE: the invention is pertaining to the field of woodworking industry, in particular, to a method of increasing strength and-or decreasing its deviations in the multilayered wood materials, plywood and the similar wood materials. The method includes measuring of the density (ρ) of the dry substance of the wood veneer sheets by means of a high-frequency electromagnetic resonance and additionally - the analysis of uniformity and-or a fibrous structure of the indicated sheets using darkening (R) their surfaces. In the case when a sheet of the wood veneer contains some number of the local first areas, which are more dark than the main darkening of the wood veneer sheet surface, such sheet has its own calculated density (ρc) of the dry substance set on the more low level as compared with its originally measured value (ρm) of the dry substance. On the other hand, if the wood veneer sheet has essentially homogeneous darkening, for this sheet they estimate the longitudinal and transversal distribution of its density of the dry substance. If these parameters are essentially uniform, then for the process of sorting the calculated density (ρc) of the dry substance of the indicated wood veneer sheet is set higher, than its originally measured value (ρm). the wood veneer sheets assort On the basis of the indicated calculated dry substance densities the wood veneer sheets are assorted at least into two different categories of density. In the first such category (A) the density of the dry substance is higher, than in the second category (B). The wood veneer sheets are laid face to face for forming a laminated wood, plywood or any other laminated material. At that, the wood veneer sheets referred to the first and the second categories of density serve accordingly as the surface sheets and the middle sheets.

EFFECT: the invention ensures an increase of strength and/or a decrease of its deviation values of the dry substance in the multilayered wood materials, plywood and the similar wood materials.
