Optimization and Expert Control

Grinding

We specialize in SAG mill, AG mill and Ball mill control. Our tested and proven strategies will:

  • Increase Throughput – Typical results are 1.5% to 4% increase or more. We have achieved double digit increases in many projects.
  • Increase Efficiency – Typical results are decreased kWHrs/ton 0.5% to 2% or more.
  • Reduce Upsets – We will reduce overloads and grind-outs that cost production and create down stream disturbances.
  • Tighter Particle Size Distribution – We will tighten the range of product particle size produced. Our process optimization will have your cyclones producing the best particle size for your downstream processes.
Flotation

By using our best in industry flotation strategies, together with our PlantVision image analysis software we can provide:

  • Increased Rougher Recovery – Typical results are 1.5% to 3% increase.
  • Improved Cleaner Grade – Produce higher grade product.
  • Optimized Reagent Usage – Reagent costs will go down with optimized use.
Crush and Convey

In both traditional dry crushing plants, and in SAG plant recycle crushing applications we consistently deliver:

  • Maximized Crusher Power Draw – Keep your crushers choke fed.
  • Finer Product – Allow for a tighter gap to produce finer product.
  • Managed Circulating Load – Optimize crushing and transport to manage circulating load.
