Statistical monitoring of a grinding circuit: An industrial case study
With the increasing availability of large amounts of real-time process data and a better fundamental understanding of the operation of mineral processing units, statistical monitoring of mineral processing plants is becoming ...
Kernel-based fault diagnosis on mineral processing plants
Safe operation, environmental issues, as well as economic considerations all form part of the wide range of driving forces for the development of better fault diagnostic systems on process plants. The continuous search for ...
Optimisation of the lance injection desulphurisation of molten iron using dynamic modelling
Pneumatic injection of calcium carbide and, in some cases, fluxes via a submerged lance has become the accepted way to desulphurise crude molten iron, as tapped from a blast furnace or COREX furnace. A number of complex ...
Physical modelling of slag foaming in two-phase and three-phase systems in the churn-flow regime
Although the principal factors determining the stability of slag foams have been identified, there is little agreement as to the relative importance of these factors. In this paper the fluid properties, the influence of ...
Analysis of electrochemical noise data with phase space methods
Analysis of the apparently random fluctuations in the current and potential of freely corroding systems has long been seen as a promising approach to the development of better corrosion sensors. Apart from the rate of ...

Online measurement of factors influencing the electrostatic separation of mineral sands
Operational factors influencing the electrostatic separation of mineral sands were investigated in a laboratory separator. Measurements were collected online by means of an optical sensor using diffused reflectance ...
