Process Control in Flotation Plants

2011-12-1  The processing of ores often entails use of unit operations such as grinding and flotation. Typical production requirements in mineral processing plants include the maximisation of throughput, maintenance of desired product quality and reduction of operating costs. For optimising plant performance, redesigning a process route is often impractical* and the problem is best addressed through on-line optimisation which involves controlling key process parameters to achieve the desired production requirements. Process control,
