Are Your Process Variables Under Control?

What would it mean to your process if the variation in your key process variables could be cut in half? For example, consider greatly reduced variation in: • Leach circuit pH. • Thickener flocculant concentration. • CIL circuit cyanide concentration. • Cyclone feed density. Do your operators know if variation is random or non-random? If your operators were more familiar with the process control methodology, would it make a difference? What would be the result if your operators could troubleshoot and optimize each process control loop? At Performance Associates International (PAI) we believe that if the process variables in the plant are controlled at or very near their individual target ranges, the plant should be operating at near optimal efficiency. This translates into the lowest operating cost per unit production. This white paper describes how PAI approaches this component of training for your specific plant. We train on your process variables, their target ranges, the method of controlling those process variables, as well as the impact on the process if the process variables are not properly controlled.
