In mining operations, the comminution process reduces the mined solid materials through crushing, grinding and other means. SAG and Ball mills are one of the most critical pieces of equipment for the process. Mining operators need to optimize grinding mill performance, and reliability to ensure tight shutoff.

Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) also look for ways to drive digital transformations in the equipment they provide to their customers. A great example comes from a Packaging World application note, Machine Condition Monitoring via IIoT.
The intended results of a Center for Operator Performance (COP) research project are to measure operator performance as a function of workload to determine if there is an inverted “U”, where high and low workloads degrade performance.
ARC Advisory Group has a podcast series on Digital Transformation Viewpoints. ARC’s Bob Gill recently interviewed Emerson’s Jonas Berge for his views on technology and digital transformation.
Join Emerson’s Andrew Cureton and Sean Collins-Dippel for an April 20 webinar at 2-3pm CDT. They will discuss ways to prevent unplanned downtime through predictive diagnostics, identify impeller cavitation for operations staff to address before the condition worsens, and recognize abnormal fluid levels in seal pots.
Cristián Doerr notes that many industries have dealt with the corrosive issues of salt water for decades and have learned over the years where they can get away with standard practices, and where they are better off investing in more corrosion resistance.
Thomas Nichley joins Jim Cahill to discuss ways to better control inventory and use data more effectively and efficiently to optimize operations in your terminal.
At Texas A&M University’s Mary Kay O’Connor Process Safety Center’s 76th Instrumentation and Automation Symposium, Emerson’s Greg McMillan presented on Bioreactor Control and Optimization using Digital Twin technology.
The next generation of discrete automation is here, and the future is even more exciting. At the Emerson Users Exchange Live 2021 Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA), Emerson’s Derek Thomas and Vibhoosh Gupta provided an overview of Emerson’s PACSystems™ controllers...
Emerson control technology offers significant benefits to renewable energy manufacturers. At Emerson Users Exchange Live 2021 Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA), Manuel Bonjean, manager of operations/electromechanical engineering at CVA, an Italian renewable energy...
To drive improvements in safety and reliability, it’s important to get real-time insight in the health of the critical mining assets. Not only can additional sensors provide early indication of asset performance issues, the use of preconfigured applications that use machine learning algorithms to continuously analyze process data and condition-based data can alert decision makers to act before failures occur.
. In a Fluid Power Journal article, Bring It On: Digital Transformation in the ‘New Normal’, Emerson’s Shaun Taylor, President of Emerson’s Global Machine Automation, Fluid Motion and Control for the Europe, Middle East and Africa region, describes how these manufacturers are undertaking digital transformation initiatives to address these challenges.
