Achieve Maximum Separation Efficiency
IntelliSense.io’s Thickener Optimization application guides metallurgists and operators on how to best move the key process variables to their optimal setpoints, stabilizing the product stream, improving water recovery and minimizing flocculant usage.
Made for Your Mining Challenges
Difficulty to Hit Target Underflow Density or Overflow Clarity
Metallurgist struggle to keep Thickener circuits stable in the face of constantly changing ore properties and upstream process performance.
Different operational modes threaten efficiency depending on the operator’s shifts and experience.
How It Helps
Real-time Information and Performance Prediction
Provide operators with proactive recommendations on how to maintain operational stability and desired performance from solid-liquid separation for underflow density and overflow clarity.
Adapt to variable ore properties to avoid rises in rake torque or bed pressure.
Users can simulate and predict performance by stipulating process objectives and operational limits that guide what “optimal” means for a specific thickener circuit.
The Added Chemistry from our Partnership with BASF
BASF is a world leader in the supply of process chemistry designed to achieve the most from a thickener. They have significant experience in the operation of thickening circuits and have a deep understanding of the upstream and downstream impacts that influence their operation.
We have embedded that knowledge and chemical interaction directly into our Thickener Optimisation Application, which when combined with our advanced data analytics and AI has produced a synergy of effect unlike anything in the industry today.
What You Get
Optimum and Stable Process, Consistently Achieving the Desired Underflow Density
Maximize your water recovery by achieving stable underflow with a high % of solids.
Prevent isolation events and stoppages, and reduce maintenance costs from rake and pump damage.
Ensure optimal flocculant usage that leads to a reduction in chemical spend.
Thickener Circuit Optimization in Action
The IntelliSense.io Thickener 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.
Significant progress in the stabilization of our thickeners operation was achieved by deploying the application
reduction in rake torque
reduction in flocculant
