Mineral processing faces intrinsically complicated processes and recirculating loads. Production can often be disturbed by unexpected events and recurrent maintenance operations. Today’s mines must also process more complex ores due to declining ore grades. All of this adds up to complicated process operations. We can provide a better way.
Model predictive control (MPC) strategies improve complex, multivariable processes and can simultaneously track and optimize multiple applications, handle restrictions and constraints, and manage variability. MPC consistently delivers better process stability, increased recovery, less reagent consumption, lower energy usage and costs, and better throughput.
