Optimize Mill Performance
System utilizes dedicated instruments and high speed data acquisition to collect and analyze mill operating variables.
APR-Based Diagnostics and Detection
Advanced pattern recognition techniques are used with existing process instrumentation to characterize normal operation and detect anomalies. The system can detect:
- Collapsed or broken spring
- Improperly adjusted rolls
- Spalled material from roll or table
- Excessive wear
- Vertical shaft and roll bearings and drive train issues
- Unbalanced table loading
Provides visualization of potential issues with grinding issues not observable from outside the mill or by any other process data.
Maximize Mill Life
Reduces fatigue loading on vertical shaft, monitors spring anomalies, wear, and component geometry.
Optimize Pulverizer-Related Boiler Impacts
Optimized mill operation will have a cascaded effect on the boiler, improving combustion, LOI, NOx, slagging, and partial derates.
