Iron Control Benefits

The operation of the FENIX Iron Control System can deliver the following benefits:

  1. Improved Copper production through reduced iron levels increasing the Electrowinning plant current efficiency
  2. Reduced losses of reagents, cobalt and high purity acid, water and anti misting surfactants
  3. Reduced burden on Solvent Extraction through reducing the amount of copper reprocessed due to a significant reduction in EW circuit bleed volumes
  4. Reduced lime neutralisation costs – particularly relevant for an acid generating operation which has to neutralise any solution bleed from it’s circuit
  5. Minimal site operator interface, unit operates as a PLC controlled stand alone unit with modem link enabling remote monitoring.
