Data processing is critical in optimizing production and gaining a deeper knowledge about processes. Since the PI System was installed at CLC, the use of PI System applications such as PI DataLink, PI ProcessBook and PI ActiveView enabled a huge leap in optimizing operational and technical processes. Essential benefits can be seen in both production optimization and information management.
The PI System has been utilized at Cobre las Cruces since February 2010. Since that time, CLC has experienced a large increase in data processing. This presentation discusses the faster results available for different purposes, ranging from operation monitoring, process efficiency tracking on real time and process analysis aiming at future improvements.
Joaquin Gotor is head of the Process Control department at Cobre las Cruces. The Process Control department is responsible for technical process tracking and analysis, metallurgical accounting and production information reporting. Gotor graduated as a Chemist at the Universidad de Sevilla. He worked previously as a metallurgist in different copper mines and hydrometallurgical operation plants and with the Spanish engineering company Técnicas Reunidas.
