Modernizing mineral processing power and analytics is critical – Rockwell Automation

18 May 2021

Are disturbances and recirculating loads pushing the limits of a processing plant? How do you lower energy costs and reduce the use of consumables? Traditional control strategies can only take you so far, states Juliano de Goes Arantes, Pavilion Account Executive at Rockwell Automation, a global leader in industrial automation and digital transformation.

“Mineral processing plants are inherently complex, facing disturbances, recirculating loads and more. Additionally, miners are looking to achieve significant process objectives to lower energy and plant costs while improving energy utilisation and water consumption, all while meeting regulatory requirements and dealing with workforce challenges,” he adds.

So how can you meet these process objectives in such complex operations? Join Rockwell Automation for a live discussion on Thursday, 20 May, at 2pm, with de Goes Arantes.

The webinar will focus on Pavilion8® Model Predictive Control (MPC) from Rockwell Automation, which is reducing process variability and enhancing stability over and above what is currently possible with more traditional control schemes. For mining customers, this ultimately delivers increased throughput, lower reagents consumption, better recovery, optimum water and energy usage, and improved process stability.

Key takeaways from the webinar:
• Learn about the main control challenges in mineral processing.
• Learn about model predictive control and how it will help reach process objectives.
• See how MPC is contributing to process improvements in specific mining applications.
