This course covers the basics of pilot plant and industrial modelling for water treatment plant design, with a focus on the common treatment processes in the mining industry. The course covers the requirements for running a pilot plant, the expected information that could be compiled by conducting a pilot plant study, and the principle of similarities and dimensional analysis to design an optimal small-scale pilot.

Learning Objectives:

  • Understanding when a pilot study is required;
  • What outcomes are expected from a pilot plant study;
  • What are the key similarities between pilot and large-scale plants;
  • Determining which parameters should be selected to design a suitable pilot plant; and
  • How to identify variable groups and conduct dimensional analysis for pilot plant study.
