PSC Advisor

Metso's Outotec PSC Advisor is designed for copper smelting plants operating with Peirce Smith Converters. PSC Advisor provides useful information for operators to stabilize and improve the converting process through advanced simulation results. The PSC Advisor helps to standardize operation between shifts, predict batch endpoints and optimize silica and revert charging, thus leading to more consistent operations and improved process efficiency. Metso’s proven and well-known dynamic mass and heat-balance model is at the core of the system and can be calibrated using process measurements and laboratory assay information. The web-based user interface is intuitive and easy to use.
