Crusher optimization

Business Problem

Crushers are known for frequent unplanned downtime, affecting both short and long term machine health and productivity. They also use a lot of energy.

Challenge

A varying feedstock as well as the distribution of ore puts a lot of pressure on the crusher and operators to maintain the right particle size, quality, quantity and uniformity. All while reducing energy and maintaining the machine’s health. Operators often revert to the use of gut predictions when calibrating set-points.

SentianController solution

SentianController utilizes real-time material sizing data to provide improved process control through setpoint optimization as well as predictions to improve workers’ abilities to anticipate disruptions and cut costs through less downtime and extended equipment life.
