How to Choose the Right Mining Control System – Perth, WA

Mineral processing is a key part of a mine’s production, so you must choose a mining control system (MCS) that’s right for your operation.

In this post, we’ll cover the basics of how a MCS works and how to choose the right one for your mining operation. 

Contact our Perth based team at SG Controls to hear about our experience with the top-rated mining control systems.

How to Choose the Right Mining Control Systems

There are different types of mining control systems in the mining industry, each with its own application.

This post will discuss the different types of mining control systems available and give you an overview of each.

We’ll also cover each control system type’s advantages and disadvantages and how to choose the right one for your organization.

How to Choose the Right Mining Control Systems

As the cost of mining equipment increases, so does the need for effective control systems to ensure that a mine’s operations are running smoothly. In this article, we’ll cover the different types of mining control systems used in the industry and discuss how they can help you make the most of your mining project.

Selecting the Right Mining Surface Sampler

For mining, perhaps the three most essential things in designing a successful mining project are sampling, sampling, sampling.

There are many differences between the operations of successful mining companies and ones that become financial failures. 

Still, one of the consistent vital differences between them is their sampling programs. 

When a mineral resource company needs to do surface sampling, it can use various surface samplers. 

Our team at SG Controls will help you choose the right one for your mining activities.

How Mining Control Systems Can Help Your Operations

Think about all the different elements that go into a mining operation. First, there’s the equipment, including the pumps, compressors, conveyors, and other pieces of machinery. 

Second, the people who operate the equipment—from the mining engineers to the mining technicians to the miners themselves.

Then there’s the rock, sand, and other materials that make up a mine.

Finally, environmental and safety concerns are always a part of mining operations. That’s where mining control systems come in.

A mining control system is a piece of industrial technology that helps a mine run more efficiently by coordinating the movement of equipment and people to minimize potential safety hazards.

The best mining control system is the one that’s right for you, so we’ve rounded up some of the best methods that have been designed specifically for the mining industry.

Last Friday 28th, saw SG Controls play host to our very own, “Not So Corporate Golf Day”.  A select few clients, staff and suppliers alike made their way to Joondalup Resort for a relaxed day of food, drink and a spot of golf!

I am pleased to report, the feedback was only positive as everyone was allowed to forget the office for the day and partake in some healthy competition with no small amount of heckling thrown in for good measure!

The format: 2 ball Ambrose, the standard…mixed.

Well done to the winners Martin Mackay and Russell Swinbourne and commiserations to Rob Humphryson and Anthony Bowman who valiantly finished last!

To all, thank you for coming, have a great Christmas and see you next year.

At SG Controls we are continually optimising processes & encounter many different automation systems. Some of our clients are using PLC/SCADA platforms and are happy with their flexibility, speed and functionality whilst others opt for DCS appreciating its stable framework, extensive mathematical and process control functionality housed in the standard library.

As many PLC and SCADA manufacturers are offering products that look and feel more like DCS systems and DCS systems are offering more flexibility to the formerly rigid structure, the age long debate of which offers the best solution persists.

What are your issues? How have you cured problems and are you completely happy with your PLC or DCS?

Architecturally, the two systems are now very similar to each other and both provide a sound solution in terms of operational requirements, both offer sophisticated analogue control abilities, specialised I/O cards and PID functionality. The manufacturers claim both offer excellent HMI functionality, data management and configuration tools along with efficient alarm management and a single tag database.

Previously the view of many was that the integration of various vendor packages to an existing plant may be cumbersome and expensive with a DCS whilst PLC systems facilitate this type of integration with relative ease, is this still the case or can DCS also achieve this flexibility?

Can a PLC solution align with the DCS capabilities processing large IO counts and complicated algorithms? Are maintenance and upgrade costs still a huge problem with DCS installed plants as the only support would be from the vendor? SG Controls would like views and experiences of past and current issues, how you have cured the problems and are completely happy with your PLC or DCS? Which PLC or DCS platform would you recommend after good and bad experiences? Ultimately we would like to establish who currently is the front runner as both claim they now are competitive both technically and financially.

To enter into the draw, simply ‘Like’ our business page and give your opinion on this long standing debate.

The prize includes 2 tickets to the Perth Melbourne Cup Day 2014 and complimentary food and drinks at the venue.

The winner will be drawn on the 24/10/14 so be sure to answer before then.
