:: Heading Towards a Predictive Full Thickener Model

The proposal for AMIRA's P266G, the new phase of the successful “Improving Thickener Technology” project, is now in circulation. Over its 20+ year life, the project has delivered considerable benefits to sponsoring companies. Sponsors have acknowledged direct financial benefits of AUD$500+m (NPV) from implementation of P266 project outcomes within their operations.

P266G will build upon this success.

Sponsorships are available. In an overall project budget of AUD$5.3m, the leverage on research investment for individual sponsors will substantial; up to 25 times for an operating sponsor.

The project scope is broad, with the over-riding goal being the completion and application of a full thickener model, able to fully predict shifts in output properties on the basis of feed, flocculant or operating condition changes. Technology Transfer is a strong component of the project and sponsors get exclusive access to the research team and their measurement/modelling capabilities for optimising operating conditions, design evaluation and problem-solving. Web-based resources include the Online Thickener Self-appraisal tool, Knowledge Base, and Sedimentation and Rake Torque models.

Work is expected to commence in Quarter 2 2012.
