It sounds impossible to increase a crushing plant's performance without investing in new machinery. But what if you could run all your existing equipment at optimal setpoints. Wouldn't it increase your production at no cost?
Few crushing plants have investigated and optimized the setpoints for all crushers and screens used. Generally, because it is not economically feasible as testing many different setpoints will negatively affect production. Maybe, you can try a few, but systematically testing many is an overwhelming task. Therefore is the likelihood that a crushing plant is running at optimal setpoints low.
The solution to the problem is to build a digital copy of your crushing plant and simulate different setpoints. The digital copy will not interfere with production, and simulation takes only fractions of time to perform compared to a real-life test. To build a digital copy may also sound like an overwhelming task. However, using our process simulator Plantsmith is simple, fun, and fast. And you can try it out for free. Build a digital copy of your crushing plant in our web-based crusher plant simulator by:
pick your different machines from the dropdown menu and drag them to the board
set your current operating setpoints
run a simulation, and plant performance will be calculated.
