Release Notes – Graphite’21

Graphite’21 is thrilled to launch the latest version of Graphite ’21.

“ is a real-time decision-making platform for asset-intensive industries. It is powered by Artificial Intelligence (AI) and the Industrial Internet of Things (IIOT).”

The Graphite’21 release note includes significant upgrades to the “out of the box” Optimisation as a Service (OaaS) Applications.

This current release focuses on three main areas;

  • Utilisation Optimisation

  • Improved Material Influence Integration

  • Value Driver Management

“Due to the variable nature of the mining industry knowing how hard to push each day is difficult. Often a stable minimum is reached. This status is questioned by Process utilization is optimized based on longer and more practical material influence factors. This allows operations to plan for the best. Setting up how defines “optimal” has never been easier. In this release, we introduced unlimited user-configurable value drivers.”- Mark de Geus, Product Director


Digital Plant

Each of the OaaS application now comes with an “out of the box” :

  • Value driver configuration, which increases user flexibility, configuration ability, and engagement; while reducing the implementation time.

  • Performance screen uniquely designed for AI transparency. That explains how the OaaS Applications Predicts, Simulates, and Optimizes the operations.

Gravity Separation

The Spiral Efficiency Prediction enables improved process monitoring and recovery. By minimizing the response time to sudden changes in feed stream properties, such as mass flow and percent solids(density) variability.

Equipment Digitalisation

A scalable real-time cycle analysis and configurable fault checking function. Batch Fault Detection or Equipment Cycle Time allows remote monitoring of batch processes and notifies the user when a piece of equipment or process is underperforming.

Pipeline Pumping

A Pipeline Pumping Optimization application that provides operators with the information to efficiently monitor pumping operations and provides them with an optimized pumping schedule constantly adapting to changing conditions to optimally run operations.

Here’s what’s improved in the Products

Grinding Circuit Optimization

  • Be well informed on the mill conditions with the Dynamic Mill weight thresholds. And receive notification on an upcoming mill under/overload. That is achieved by defining the optimal mill weight to changing feed conditions.

  • Make better decisions on the mill feed changes by knowing the composition of the Mill Charge in real-time. Thereby increasing the throughput and producing a more consistent particle size.

Digital Stockpile

Build better-reclaiming strategies by knowing the age of the material in the stockpiles since it’s stacked and avoids metallurgical recovery losses.

Flotation Optimization

Maximize the metal recovery by optimizing the floatation circuit performance with the Virtual Sensor recommendations on some of the unmeasured properties such as the material flows between flotation sections and the section’s mass pull.

Heap Leach Optimization

  • Adapt to the plant feed in real-time with the Particle size prediction that drives liberation consistency hence recovery.

  • Get an insight into the material property and its influence contributing to the predicted reclaim difficulty. It reveals the noise distribution and helps ensure resource allocation done in advance.

  • When the increased fines affect the leaching kinetics and metal recovery, bi-weekly inference allows optimized crusher products with fewer fines. Hence these prediction allows for more effective production planning and ore blending strategies.
