Ore concentration

Business Problem

In copper concentration plants, long standing operational best practice utilizing “standard recipes” leaves plenty of room for optimization. Early optimization efforts result in 10% production increases with room for more.

Challenge

The ore-concentrating mill is an operationally challenging environment with operators responsible for manually setting and tuning dozens of control settings. Applying one or a few longstanding standard recipes is current best practice for operators to cope with overwhelming complexity.

SentianController solution

SentianController utilize plant performance predictions to optimize control settings to adjust the standard recipe to variation in ore properties, resulting in significant production gains.
