While raw material is being conveyed, Perth-based METS Engineering believes operators should simultaneously perform analysis and then use the information to prevent o grade material from being shipped.
The information can also be used for process control.
“Operators can have full control of the process plan using the inputs from the online analysers to make decisions regarding dosing, equipment settings and the process options available,” METS Engineering metallurgical manager John Visser said.
According to Visser, the deployment of this kind of automated decision making will improve the e ciency of the plant, reduce the variability of nal product grades and improve the overall production rate of a plant.
