Appliquette was approached by Magotteaux to develop them an app for mineral processors that provides the user with three functions:
- Troubleshooting guide providing useful hints on what to do if the user encounters certain problems (Tailing grades too high?)
- Support giving more information on unit process
- Calculations allowing the user to plug in numbers and get an answer
This app has been designed by Magotteaux’s grinding and flotation specialists to give the user useful information relevant to their normal duties, or when responding to operational problems in the plant.
Dot point troubleshooting guides are clear and concise, making them easy to follow when trying to generate a corrective action plan for a particular plant issue. Support for common plant processes provide the user with a fundamental understanding of the operation of grinding mills, cyclones and flotation circuits.
Calculators covering a range of fundamental tasks from the plant to the metallurgical laboratory are included and are designed to easily input data and clearly display the result.
Mineral Processing Support – by Magotteaux is a quick reference tool providing a practical troubleshooting and support guide as well as useful calculators for metallurgists and plant operators.
Always available offline allowing the user the freedom of using the app while trying to resolve an issue in the plant.
