    Introduction to Process Water Recycling and Treatment in Mineral Processing
    Saara Hagnäs and Piia Suvio D.Eng., Product Manager and Director Water Treatment Solutions, Industrial Water Treatment Recorded: Feb 22 2018 37 mins
    Introducing a series of webinars on tailings dewatering, the third webinar will introduce water recycling and treatment in mineral processing. Each webinar will cover the topic from equipment to plant, taking a holistic view of the issues that enable and constrain the technology.

    In water recycling and treatment, we review the basics of water in mineral processing, and then expand the concept to water recycling and treatment in mineral processing plants.

    Water recycling in mineral processing plant can significantly increase the amount of water available for processing. Recycling of water leads to increase in constituents present in water, leading to accumulation of impurities that can impact the recovery of metal within the flotation and reverse flotation processes. Review on testing of the impact of certain impurities has been carried out and results will be presented. At the end of the webinar we will outline recommendations for process water treatment that can improve the recovery.

    Boosting Adoption of Smart Water Networks through Policy
    Tim Braun, EMNET, Chris Rezendes, IoT Impact Labs, Jeffrey L. Lape, EPA, Peter Mulvaney, West Monroe Partners, Frost&Sullivan Recorded: Jun 8 2017 56 mins
    North America is in a period of transition with new political directions. This includes the drive to constrict the EPA and reduce regulation in the midst of national worries over water quality, the adoption of new technologies and business models, an increased need for partnerships at the local level, and incorporating private partners and practices. Now more now than ever, water utilities must build a framework to adopt policies and directions to improve local efficiencies and management. Data-driven smart water technologies are poised to be at the center of this transition, helping North American water utilities manage current and impending challenges, and form the bridge between today's utility operations and successful navigation of the changing policy landscape.
  • Power and Petrochemicals Dominate the Mobile Treatment Market
    Power and Petrochemicals Dominate the Mobile Treatment Market
    Seth Cutler, Senior Industry Analyst, Energy & Environment Recorded: May 16 2017 34 mins
    Without mobile water and wastewater treatment systems, end users across all industries would incur sever service disruptions, regulatory non-compliance issues, and an inability to cater to agile needs for mobile activity in select industries, such as Oil & Gas. The critical nature of products and services in this market presents growth opportunities at all levels. Despite three key market participants, GE Water & Process Technologies, Evoqua, and MPW Industries, the range of technologies used and low customer loyalty present market openings for many organizations. Those that cater to industry needs and understand their demands can make strong inroads in the future.

  • Water balance monitoring and management for mine sites
    Water balance monitoring and management for mine sites
    Laura Nevatalo, Eija Saari Recorded: Jun 14 2016 27 mins
    Water is an essential component in mineral processing. It is a valuable resource and medium for transport, as well as a potential source of risk to the environment and operation. Real-time information about water quality and quantity is a valuable resource for any mine site seeking to optimize process operations and reduce environmental concerns. This information is often saved to various different data management systems, making it difficult to monitor, report and analyze.

    In this webinar we describe the benefits of collecting and combining all water related data from the mine area and mineral processing plant. Outotec presents a solution for water quality and quantity management linking on-line measurements to its advanced dynamic modeling. Combining real-time data from site with dynamic modeling provides mining companies with the opportunity to evaluate different operating scenarios and make informed decisions for selecting the best candidate for an efficient process. The solution also gives a holistic view to all water related information at the mine site, providing the site with the capability to react to changes that could influence productivity or otherwise jeopardize operations. With automatic data transfer, the solution minimizes manual reporting work and provides the necessary key performance indicators (KPI) to all stakeholders.
  • 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 Recorded: Jun 3 2016 53 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.

    Optimización del área de espuma en la celda de flotación
    Rodrigo Grau, Senior Manager Beneficiation process, Outotec Recorded: May 13 2016 59 mins
    El tema a presentar será ‘Concentración de la cama de espuma y diseño de launders (canaletas)’, así como su influencia en el rendimiento de las celdas de flotación.

    Frecuentemente, las compañías ignoran la importancia de una correcta concentración de la cama de espuma y el diseño de los launders; sin embargo, ambos aspectos adquieren un rol de crucial importancia para el correcto rendimiento metalúrgico de las celdas de flotación, y en consecuencia el de la planta en su totalidad. Las celdas de flotación de distintas funciones dentro de la planta requieren distintas configuraciones del cono de espuma y las canaletas de concentrado para su operación óptima. Outotec explorará las distintas opciones con los participantes y demostrará cómo identificar la mejor configuración para una planta. La duración de la presentación es de aproximadamente 45 minutos con 15 minutos para preguntas al final.
  • Optimizing froth area of the flotation cell
    Optimizing froth area of the flotation cell
    Jason Heath, Technology Leader Flotation, Outotec Recorded: Apr 29 2016 50 mins
    The topic in focus will be ‘flotation cell froth crowding and launder design,’ and its’ influence on overall performance of a flotation cell. Companies often overlook the importance of crowding and launder design; however, both play a critical role in good metallurgical performance of an individual cell, and therefore the overall performance of the plant. Flotation cells with different duties and in different positions will require different cone and launder configurations; Outotec will explore these options with participants and demonstrate how to identify the correct arrangement in a plant. Duration of the presentation is approximately 45 minutes with 15 minutes Q&A at the end.
