Process Mill / Concentrator

Refining that raw ore into concentrate is an energy intensive process. Even the slightest inefficiency or unnecessary outage will impact the bottom line.

Common electrical challenges in a mining process mill:

  • Voltage problems when starting large mill motors.
  • High power harmonics injected by variable frequency drives.
  • High arc flash hazards due to high energy levels.
  • Circulating ground currents and other unusual sources of equipment heating.
  • PLC / DCS controls that require continual adjustments or maintenance.
  • Transformer tapchangers and capacitor banks that fight with one another.
