Advanced process control enables smarter mineral processing

Artificial intelligence (AI) is fast becoming a part of everyday life and an expected part of industrial process optimisation solutions in mining. To meet this growing trend, FLSmidth has launched the latest version of its advanced process control solution, ECS/ProcessExpert® V8.5 software, which now includes the ability to integrate new AI cognitive technologies and functions.

The ECS/ProcessExpert V8.5 software facilitates predictive modelling of process data signals that can be unreliable or unavailable. These are then used to create a more accurate model and controller of the actual process conditions. The benefits? An improved ability to maintain optimal setpoints and a faster response to conditions that may result in undesirable situations. 

ECS/ProcessExpert V8.5 software also incorporates new features to promote collaboration and cooperation. Customers can integrate their own machine or deep learning algorithms into the software’s applications and control strategies via a new module known as PXP DataBooks, bridging the gap between automation engineer and data scientist.

Another new feature of the ECS/ProcessExpert V8.5 software is a range of sustainability dashboards that contextualise the system’s performance in terms of environmental KPIs. With these dashboards, operators can clearly see how process improvements, such as higher energy efficiency, translate into lower CO2 emissions.
