MIPAC in western Africa

Tuesday, September 06, 2011

MIPAC recently completed a project for an international mining company with a gold mine in western Africa.

The mine's SAG mill needed attention so MIPAC's engineers undertook a discovery mission, followed this up with a feasibility study and then control optimisation.

Our client is delighted with our efforts. Just a week after MIPAC launched the new control system, there was a five per cent improvement in throughput, equating to a $10-15 million a year increase in revenue.

Don't Overlook DCS or PLC for Optimisation

Tuesday, July 13, 2010
MIPAC is often approached by customers seeking solutions to improve stability of their flotation circuits or to make their SAG mills operate at optimum capacity. A common reaction when things are not running at their best though is to purchase new software or systems.

MIPAC's Andrew Thornton has had lots of experience that proves advanced control strategies can be built using your current DCS or PLC.

In many cases, he believes that processing operations can avoid the need for additional capital expenditure and simply apply some optimisation strategies to get more out of existing plant.
