Refining to your full potential

Mineral processing plants today face myriad challenges, from declining ore grades, ores becoming more complex, substantially increasing operational costs and increases in environmental constraints and considerations.

Optimising the efficiency of each step in mineral processing is crucial to help you reduce environmental impact, increase profitability and produce a high-quality output, safely and efficiently.

A common phenomenon in electrorefining (ER) and electrowinning (EW) processes is the most damaging metallurgical short circuit. These circuits produced in the electrolytic cells can drastically affect the efficiency of the EW and ER process.

A cell voltage monitoring system is an essential tool for refineries. It provides a key performance indicator by detecting short circuits and monitoring the overall health of a cell, it makes an ER or EW operation realise its full potential.

Easy, wireless monitoring

CellView is our wireless, early short detection system that continuously and accurately monitors cell voltage in EW or ER tankhouse operations. It helps you minimise your production losses, improve efficiency, reduce maintenance costs and simplify your operations.

The device serves as an early warning system and increases your fault detection capabilities in cells simply and easily. Specifically designed for aggressive chemical settings, CellView has been built to withstand harsh tankhouse environments to help you achieve a sustainable, high standard in your electrolytic refining process.

Continuous, real-time cell information

Customise your operator interface and configure your detection settings to accurately monitor your cell voltage. CellView enables historical data storage for trending and analysis as well as the option for temperature measurement.

Easy, wireless, scalable installation

Easy to install and maintain, CellView enables you to significantly reduce your cabling, construction and ongoing maintenance costs and add more cell monitors when needed.

Efficient allocation of human resources

Use your resources efficiently and effectively for shorts detection and correction.

Connectivity

Connect to your existing plant systems (OPC interface).

Redundant mesh networks

Perfect for harsh and noisy environments.

Long battery life

CellView has a battery life of five to ten years.

Glencore Technology considers cell voltage monitoring to be an important feature of its refinery technology offerings…With CellView® we have a proven system that is easy to install and maintain, and the custom-configured operator interface ensures refining cells with short circuits are readily identified
