Optimizing the Productivity of Mines with Bulk Material Simulation

Live Webinar – Wednesday, October 28th | 09:00am (PDT)

The performance and reliability of conveyor transfer points and feed chutes, reclaimers, crushers and grinding mills are a critical factor determining the productivity of mines and plants. Raw materials are at the core of the mining process and efficient handling and processing of these materials is key to optimizing operational efficiency and equipment reliability.

Altair EDEM is a Discrete Element Method (DEM) software for bulk and granular material simulation. EDEM enables companies to analyze the flow of rocks, ores and coal through each segment of their equipment or operation.

EDEM is used to evaluate and verify the design performance of transfer chutes and address key design challenges such as spillage, blockage and wear. It is also used to optimize comminution equipment, by predicting the effects of crusher and mill geometry, ore characteristics, and operating conditions on grinding efficiency, mill yield, and power demand.

In this webinar we will introduce EDEM software, explain how it can be used to optimize the performance of bulk material handling and processing equipment, and go through examples of applications in the mining industry.
