Best practices for auditing the performance of your screening process (1 reply)

This is notice of a webinar on Thursday about auditing screening process. I can't attend due to a conflict. If someone else is interested and participated, I'd appreciate hearing your thoughts / learning.



What does a screening system audit entail and why is it a recommended best practice? A screening system audit is an analysis of the separation performance of the screening equipment.  Ideally, the audit will include a particle size analysis of the incoming feed material and separated fractions, and will confirm the fractional yields to get a complete picture of the screening equipment performance.  The audit also includes a review of how the screening equipment is configured and what screen media is being utilized to make the separations.  Additionally, the screening equipment’s mechanical condition and operation is checked to confirm it is being run as recommended by the manufacturer.  Conducting an audit is a recommended best practice because, when it is completed, the audit should determine the separation efficiency of the screening circuit and identify any areas of inefficiency where improvements can be implemented to increase productivity.

Audit a screening process is the review and analysis of equipment installed in the crushing circuit and engineering design. It is necessary to involve the performance of the crusher and conveyor belts because they feed and move the crushed material under certain conditions. This kind of analysis is usually accomplished by an experienced metallurgist followed by taking sample and reviewing the design parameters to make sure the operation of the crushing circuit is acceptable. Obviously, a bad performance of the crushing circuit has a significant impact in the next circuits of the process plant.
