  • Best maintenance practices to give best metallurgical performance in flotation Best maintenance practices to give best metallurgical performance in flotation Ben Murphy, Senior Sales Manager, Outotec Jun 3 2016 2:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Often the mechanical and maintenance of a flotation operation is overlooked when focusing on plant metallurgical performance, causing loss of “easy recovery percentages”. For this reason, the topic in focus will be ‘flotation maintenance practices.’ Common mechanical issues together with spare and wear parts have a big impact on the efficiency of a flotation plant. These points will be discussed with the participants, as well as an overview of some of critical areas that directly affect the overall performance of the plant. Well-defined regular maintenance can limit downtime, increase availability, and lead to better overall performance of the individual components of the flotation cell. Duration of the presentation is approximately 45 minutes with 15 minutes Q&A at the end.
  • Levelling the intermittency of renewables with coal - costs and risks Levelling the intermittency of renewables with coal - costs and risks Dr Lesley Sloss Jun 8 2016 11:00 am UTC 45 mins
    Countries are setting ever higher goals for producing power from clean, renewable energies and some are actively turning their backs on fossil fuels. However, many of these regions are discovering the real challenges of trying to produce baseload power for public consumption from renewable sources which are, at best, intermittent, and, at worse, unpredictable and unreliable. Until large scale energy storage is available and affordable, baseload power from coal, gas, and/or nuclear will remain necessary in many regions for several more years. Obviously this baseload power is required when renewable output is low (when the sun doesn't shine and the wind doesn't blow). However, it is also still required to make up the balance of power in a diverse energy mix. Under the new energy policy regimes in many regions, renewable sources have priority into the grid and sit in the guaranteed dispatch mix in the base region which coal used to occupy. Coal has now been nudged into the dispatchable area of the mix, being asked to ramp up or down or even to idle or run beyond normal capacity, sometimes at short notice, to produce the balance of power required to maintain grid output. And whilst coal plants can run relatively flexibly, this does not come without cost. Most older coal-fired units were designed to run at steady output. Asking these plants to cycle and ramp puts stresses on the plant which can result in added cost, less efficient production, increased wear and tear and, in some cases, damage causing enforced outages for repair and/or upgrade. This webinar, looks at the stresses placed on coal-fired plants as they are asked to help levelise and counterbalance the intermittency of renewable sources, concentrating on the risks and costs. Case studies and examples of issues being encountered in the USA, the UK and Germany are included.
  • Scopus: Using the right metrics Scopus: Using the right metrics Norman Azoulay, Product Manager, Scopus Jun 16 2016 4:00 pm UTC 60 mins

  • Efficient IT Survey Results 2014-2016 Efficient IT Survey Results 2014-2016 Julian Kudritzki Jun 16 2016 5:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Three years of Uptime Institute Survey Data illustrate the organizational shift in IT Infrastructure Efficiency Prioritization and Accountability. There are new faces at the IT table. And one of them is sustainability. Two years ago, a place at the table for sustainability would have been provocative, and perhaps evoked derision. In 2015, less than a tenth of enterprise IT stakeholders had confidence in corporate sustainability to affect IT efficiency and costs. One short year later, 2016 is a vastly different matter and the data suggests that the time of corporate sustainability in IT is here now: 70% of enterprise IT organizations actively participate in corporate sustainability efforts. Join us as we reveal additional insights from our Efficient IT research.
  • Mayor rendimiento en flotación a través de mejores prácticas de mantenimiento Mayor rendimiento en flotación a través de mejores prácticas de mantenimiento Arturo Salazar Martinez, Process Metallurgist, Outotec Jun 17 2016 3:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    A menudo las prácticas apropiadas de mantenimiento mecánico de una planta de flotación son descuidadas debido a un fuerte enfoque en aspectos relacionados al rendimiento metalúrgico, conllevando a la pérdida de recuperación fácilmente accesible. Por esta razón, el tema a cubrir será el de ‘Prácticas de mantenimiento en flotación’.​

    Estos problemas comunes de mantenimiento en conjunto con el desgaste de las piezas de refacción determinan en gran medida la eficiencia de una planta de flotación. Estos puntos serán discutidos con los participantes, así como una revisión general de algunas áreas críticas que afectan directamente al rendimiento de la planta. Un mantenimiento regular y bien definido puede prevenir paros inesperados, incrementar la disponibilidad y promover un mayor rendimiento en general de los componentes de la celda de flotación. La duración de la presentación es de aproximadamente 45 minutos con 15 minutos para preguntas al final.
  • Dodging Data Center Operations Disasters Dodging Data Center Operations Disasters Thomas Baehr Jun 30 2016 5:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Conventional wisdom blames “human error” for the majority of data center outages: operator mistakes. The responsibility falls to the operator for failing to rescue a situation. But failure in most cases, can be attributed to poor management decisions (design compromises, budget cuts, staff reductions, vendor selection, a lack of appropriate procedures and resources) disconnected from the incident. What decisions led to a situation where front line operators were unprepared or untrained to respond to an incident and mishandled it?

    In this session you will learn about:
    •What causes data center outages
    •Management and Operations Deficiencies
    •A management framework to address behaviors and risks—independent of design
  • Boosting flotation profitability with modern technology Boosting flotation profitability with modern technology Sherwin Morgan, Process Manager, Outotec Jul 8 2016 7:00 am UTC 60 mins
    The topic in focus will be ‘flotation modernizations and upgrades,’ and their vital importance in improving plants and processes operating under the current pressure of the mineral processing industry. With over 100 years of development, advances in flotation technology and controls have been substantial. New technology can be used to replace or improve existing equipment, leading to greater levels of efficiency, usability, reliability, stability and flexibility. Changes in ore bodies mean that subsequent changes in equipment are also required – Outotec will explore these changes and latest developments with participants, introducing some simple tools that the audience can use to make preliminary assessments. Duration of the presentation is approximately 45 minutes with 15 minutes Q&A at the end.
