Large material, such as rocks, in a hydrotransport system of fine particles can damage pumps and equipment. A reliable, non-intrusive, and on-line acoustic method was developed for the detection of this large material. Analysis of signals recorded by microphones attached to the pipe wall allows for the reliable detection of rocks of different sizes and shapes, with no false positives.
