Check out the benefits of O_Blend CEMENT

Master strongly varying input material compositions during blending in cement plants.

Sort the incoming input material feeds.

Ease recalibration of on-line analyzers.

Increase raw-mill production.

Test our fully-functional trial version. Decrease significantly your risk of buying a new software.

What is it all about?

Based on on-line analyzers (e.g. PGNAA, PFTNA, LIBS, NIRA) or off-line analyzers (e.g. XRF), O_Blend Cement helps

  • visualize the tonnage and quality of stockpiles and silos,
  • sort an incoming feed onto stockpiles with distinct grades,
  • optimize the quality (e.g., targets for LS, SR, AR; upper limits for Fe2O3, Al2O3) of a blend batch (blendpile, train, ship, silo/bin) or a blend tonnage window by adjusting the proportions of the input material feeders or reclaimed materials,
  • optimize the raw-mill throughput.
O_Blend Cement Features

Visualization:

    • Visualize tonnage and quality maps of stacked (sub)piles and predict the quality of the reclaimed material

Sorting:

    • Sort automatically or assist in sorting an incoming feed from a train, ship, quarry or mine onto stockpiles with distinct grades

Blending:

    • To reduce the variability of blend quality, automatically blend or assist in blending several input material feeders of stockpiles, raw mills and cement mills
    • Handle large unknown variations of the input material compositions with no need to update the compositions by the user
    • No need for maintenance contract or on-site expert as O_Blend is based on novel measurement-based optimization (MBO) technology
    • Compensate for large time delays (40 min and more) between feeder actions and XRF analysis in the absence of an on-line analyzer
    • Apply customized strategies to reduce the effects of stockpile or silo changes and large perturbations in raw materials
    • Use alternative feeds when a feeder reaches a limit
    • Adjust production  when a feeder deviates from its setpoint
    • Compute an optimal raw material for each feeder
    • Use transparent feeder actions

Optimization:

    • Maximize the raw-mill throughput

And more:

    • Reduce the need for recalibrating on-line analyzers thanks to O_Blend Cement Compensator
    • Fast commissioning thanks to a dynamic simulator
    • Connect easily to a customer PLC (ABB, Rockwell, Schneider-Electric, Siemens, Yokogawa, etc.)
