BLENDSCAN software options for cement plant blending control are provided to maximize the real time benefits of measurement and active control to achieve the best performance from your plant.
The software is used to automate and optimise quality control of conveyed materials. In the cement industry, BLENDSCAN PILE OFFLINE and BLENDSCAN PILE ONLINE optimise limestone or marl pre-blending while BLENDSCAN MILL optimises raw mix blending.
In conjunction with our GEOSCAN-C PGNAA analyser, this software will help you minimise any variation in the material quality being sent to the stockpile, kiln or mixing silo;
- BLENDSCAN PILE ONLINE / OFFLINE will help reduce LSF standard deviation at an early stage in the process, building a more consistent stockpile and therefore improving the pre-homogenisation.
- BLENDSCAN MILL will help reducing LSF standard deviation before the raw mill. It will automatically optimise the quantity of additive required for achieving a given material quality.
""The economic benefit gained from use of the Coalscan on-line ash monitors in most cases results from control of mining and plant operations closer to the required specification ash content. A number of independent studies have estimated the benefits of on-line ash analysis to average more than A$500 000 per year per installed gauge.""
