Made for Your Mining Challenges

Struggle to Keep Grinding Stable at the Desired Setpoints

Lack of transparency on what is happening inside the mills (overloads, charge level, line wear) and variable feed conditions often threaten the best performance, besides requiring frequent mill inspections and stoppages, reducing efficiency.

How It Helps

Receive Guidance on Setpoints for Key Process Variables

By using Scientific AI to create Virtual Sensors (to track linear wear, overload prediction, ball, and mill charge), it provides real-time values of key properties inside the mill such as charge volume, slurry density, charge trajectory & particle size distribution.

This insight caters to variable feed properties and guides operators with optimum setpoints with alerts of potential mill events long before they happen.

What You Get

Increased Mill Throughput and Performance

Maintain your grinding circuit’s stability and increase optimal operating conditions by reducing unplanned liner replacements and unnecessary stoppage checks.

Decrease maintenance energy and costs by safely pushing the mill to its optimal operating point for the current feed conditions.

Grinding Circuit Optimization in Action

The Grinding Optimization application has been developed and refined over several years at multiple customer sites, creating an ‘out-of-the-box’ product that can be rapidly deployed to deliver value within weeks.

We achieved a 1% throughput increase by maintaining productivity and reducing shutdowns, delivering a $1.3M economic benefit
