Ball mill

Business Problem

Mills consume large quantities of energy and play an important role in getting the right quality and uniformity in the size of the grind.

Challenge

The challenge is to maintain the right rotation speed, feed, water level and ball load at all times given the variation in the feed and the desired output.

SentianController solution

SentianController learns from the available operational data to predict the particle size distribution to enable closer control for increased quality and reduced costs. As the model learns and grows, so does SentianController’s capabilities, continuously providing the operator with optimization setpoint recommendations and corrections towards current quality and production targets.
