A mining company was losing potential revenue as a result of sub-optimal throughput and efficiency in the milling circuits. It implemented GE software for process optimization on one of the milling circuits to stabilize the circuit.
The GE solution proved that it could control the milling process to better handle disturbances within operational and physical constraints. Using the software, the mill obtained more consistent performance and higher, more stable throughput.
Since the solution controlled the mill at its most optimal operating point, it also helped decrease specific power consumption and improve grind.
