Online course: modeling and simulation of mineral processing with USIM PAC software
Need to adapt over and over the mine-to-mill process? Do more with less? Don’t know how to begin, what process parameters to adjust? Process modeling and simulation constitute the most powerful methods to design, scale-up and upgrade processing plants.
Learn in this self-paced online course how to design and optimize step-by-step mining, mineral and metals processing plants
with USIM PAC, the most well-known mineral processing simulation software. Go to the next level with this practical online course in modeling and simulation of mineral processing!
Identify the best opportunities to meet current and future mining production requirements
Today, mining industry is facing many challenges: lower grades, more complex deposits, market demands variation… In an over changing environment, mineral and metal processing companies are pushed to experiment new operational strategies without impacting the production.
These require analysis tools to estimate different configurations and also skilled people who have a general overview of processes across the entire value chain, from ores to metal.
What you will learn in this course
- Mineral processing flowsheeting
- Process simulation
- Circuit mass balancing (grinding, flotation…)
- Equipement sizing (rod mill, ball mill, hydrocyclone…)
- Investment cost calculation of a future mineral processing plant
A 100% online course based on case studies
- By enrolling in this premium course, you will learn how to use modeling and simulation
approaches to design and optimize your processes from real-world case studies.
- During this training, you will have the opportunity to use USIM PAC engineering
software, a tool not developed for the chemical industry, but one dedicated to your
processes, those of the metals and mining industries. One 60-days USIM PAC education
licence (standalone) is included in the course.
- Above all, this pratical training course give you the keys to understand and analyse
complex processes, to minimize investment costs, to optimize plant production
performance (recovery, product quality, etc.) and improve energy efficiency. Get the big
picture, make informed and reliable decisions!
