Flotation Optimization

Increase Flotation Recovery & Stability Using Scientific AI

IntelliSense.io Flotation Optimization application uses real-time Scientific AI to expose how individual flotation cells & columns perform in response to changing feed properties and other process changes, allowing proactive process changes that keep the circuit stable and increase recovery.

Made for Your Mining Challenges

Lack of Visibility of Underperforming Cells

Operators face a reactive and manual approach, often responding to the appearance of the froth.

Constant changes in feed properties, limited real-time visibility, and best-guess setting of control variables decrease grade and recovery.

How It Helps

Real-time Insight into Individual Flotation Cells Performance

Use Scientific AI to constantly adapt to changes in feed properties to achieve your throughput, grade, and recovery goals.

Show and recommend optimal set points and ranges of key control variables that directly influence the flotation grade and recovery, including reagent dosages, air flow rates, and pulp levels.

Simulate and predict the impact of changes in material inputs (ore mineralogy and PSD) on the flotation circuit performance.

What You Get

Increased Metal Recovery and Greater Stability

Explicit operational guidance to proactively make changes and maintain your desired grade and recovery irrespective of upstream changes. 

Better manage setpoints to optimize your flotation circuit, and reduce inefficiencies by highlighting underperforming cells.

The IntelliSense.io team implemented their process optimization application for our complex flotation circuit comprising more than 100 cells. It is forecast to generate more than a 3% increase in metal recovery.
