  • Beschreibung: The main objective of OPTIMORE is to optimize the crushing, milling and separation processing technologies for tungsten and tantalum. Optimization is realized by means of improved fast and flexible fine tuning production process control based on new software models, advanced sensing and deeper understanding of processes to increase yield and increase energy savings. The results explained in this work show this fulfilment with developed or simplified models for crushing, milling, gravity, magnetic and froth flotation separations. A new control system has been developed in this last part of the project, using the developed process models and advanced sensor systems. Validation of models in the simulation environment has been carried out. A pilot plant and real plant validation is planned for the end of the project. Knowledge transfer throughout the project between the Tungsten and Tantalum industry and the project partners has resulted in a strong relation between both which will continue to grow as the project concludes.
