Our 3D scanning provides as-built drawings of your facility with precise measurements and pictures, allowing you to make quicker and better-informed decisions for future expansions or maintenance. Having these plans allows:

  • Alternative analyses for improvements
  • Understanding of how to create a new higher revenue operating system
  • Development of plant upgrade scenarios by modeling different options in Autodesk® AutoCAD® 3D software
3D Surpac Model

However, to be the most successful with the process control instrumentation, we need to make sure the plant evaluation includes:

  • Complete mass balance development
  • Field flow measurement: belt cuts, flow meters, density
  • Unit analysis and performance evaluation: crushers, screens, cyclones, dryers, classifiers, mills, flotation, calciners, magnets, feeders, and conveyors
  • Flowsheet development
  • Prioritization of projects based on ROI
  • Project management and implementation
