The Mining and Minerals Processing industry is an industry with many challenges. Not only does it need to be flexible to the internal problems arising from changing ore bodies, it must be able to respond to the pressures put on it by global competition, global prices and highly mobile capital and people. Yokogawa's core operating platform, CENTUM VP, empowers users in the Mining and Mineral Processing industry to compose workflows ensuring maximum efficiency and profitability, always allowing total insight and control of the process chain. From mining, materials handling, mineral processing, smelting, refining and recovery, all production capabilities and statistics are easily available.
Yokogawa's commodity capabilities include:
- Ferrous Metals (Chrome, Iron, Steel & Manganese)
- Base Metals (Aluminium, Copper, Nickel & Zinc)
- Platinum Group Metals (Platinum, Palladium, Rhodium, Ruthenium, Iridium & Osmium)
Kyushu Mitsui Aluminium uses the UPM100 Power Monitor for its overall factory operations, and the DX1000 Paperless Recorder for its high-purity aluminum refining furnaces.
- Smooth and safe migration to CENTUM VP enhances production efficiency at major Australian gold mine.
- The HMI stations instaled at the central control room, training system, primary crusher, workshop, and office are all connected via thesame communication bus.
- Configuration of complicated procedures in Exapilot leads to operational excellence.
- DENKA wanted to standardize the operation, reduce workload and prevent operator errors.
- FDT technology gives users centralized access to all devices.
- FDT technology provides a common environment for configuring, operating, or maintaining any devices.
CENTUM VP was selected to increase production output of a gold refinery in Australia.
The unprecedented reliability and availability of CENTUM ensured zero unplanned downtime.
Most zinc are produced at hydrometallurgically, where a high-grade zinc product can be obtained and valuable metals mixed in the raw material can be recovered. In the hydrometallurgy, the raw material of zinc concentrate is roasted and then dissolved in sulfuric acid to remove impurities. The process called leaching and pH control of the leachate is important.
Magnetic Flowmeter dual frequency excitation provides immunity to slurry noise by good stability and accuracy, determining the maintenance timing can be recognized by monitoring of electrodes.
Data critical for quality control in aluminum casting is monitored and recorded by the DX1000/DX2000. Various kinds of data from a holding furnace are batch recorded, and data during occurrence of alarms is recorded separately.
A belt conveyor fire detection solution employing the DTSX distributed optical fiber temperature sensor can greatly reduce crises that can threaten a company's survival.
With industrial and economic development comes increasingly large and advanced power plants and factories. Nevertheless, we find many cases where the original cables, cable tunnels, and other components of the power infrastructure have languished under continuous operation.
The world of process automation is governed by procedures. While we like to refer to the process industries as being largely "continuous", this could not be further from the truth. Process manufacturing is constantly in flux.
The automation suppliers that will be successful in the long term will be those that effectively address application or industry specific problems for end users with a value proposition that cannot be ignored. These problems exist throughout the process industries today, and they won't be solved by simply offering a product, but through a combination of hardware, software, services, application expertise, and knowledge.
