Process optimization and controls for mining equipment

Improving performance using technology and expertise

Mining processes are interrelated. The performance of one impacts the other. While it is critical that each individual process runs efficiently, it's also important to take a step back and look at the big picture. Metso is here to support you from quick fixes on single processes to full pit-to-port optimization.

Why consider mining process optimization

Optimization in mining is a flexible practice, which can focus on bottlenecks, downstream impact or adapting to market trends. It all starts with your goals:

Increase production: common during market booms, activities are centered on debottlenecking to improve availability, throughput & recovery
Reduce costs: whether for one unit or the entire system, activities include reducing energy consumption, chemical cost, water use & adapting to ore types
Improve stability: achieving consistent output is key in each stage, focus is on reducing variability and stabilizing processes across the plant
Decrease environmental impact: enabling sustainability initiatives while maximizing productivity & profitability

How mining process optimization works

No matter the size of the project, we apply our proven four step method:

  1. Consultation: Together, our experts help to define specific goals and uncover areas of opportunity. Detailed analysis and benchmarking is typically performed, using our state-of-art laboratories. Projects are always tailored to suit individual needs, usually centered on a key focus area:
  2. Solution development: Metso has developed a number of process monitoring, analysis, and control tools to help maintain optimum operations at mine sites. Utilizing these tools, custom solutions are engineered and tested through simulations.

  3. Implementation: All recommendations are performed safely and efficiently with the complete support of Metso experts. Risk mitigation and safety are the core focus of this stage.

  4. Continuous improvement: Remote monitoring can be integrated into solutions, as well support in standardizing operating procedures and training to sustain benefits over time.
