Process Optimisation

For existing processes, minor changes in feed type or upstream process operating conditions can often lead to significant processing issues in downstream processes and equipment. Such issues can rapidly multiply and cause operational interruptions and equipment damage. We have considerable experience in identifying the causes and mitigating the effects of various process interruptions. By investigating the rheology and material characteristics of the affected streams, RCS can assist with:

  • Thickener operational analysis and flocculant efficiency
  • Analysis of pumping and throughput issues
  • Analysis of mixing unit operations
  • Identification of optimum process conditions
  • Identification of chemical additives to mitigate processing issues
  • Development of alternative processing strategies
