From Idea to Prototype on Resource Challenges in just a Weekend
This competition has finished.
THE CHALLENGE Using sound to optimise process efficiency. For this challenge we used SAG mill noise to demonstrate that machine learning of sound can be used to optimise process efficiency. OUR APPROACH As SAG mill speed is increased, mill noise also increases as a result of high energy impacts of the grinding media on mill liners. We have applied machine learning to identify and learn the acoustic sweet spot of the SAG mill, where overthrowing of mill charge is minimal.
