Simulation of the Kalgoorlie nickel smelter flowsheet using METSIM
MetadataShow full item record
A steady state heat and mass balance simulation of the Western Mining Kalgoorlie Nickel Smelter (KNS) flowsheet was developed within the framework of the commercial software METSIM. The KNS simulation can achieve all plant setpoints through the adjustment of controlled process inputs, and provides a useful tool for the evaluation of the current flowsheet and potential flowsheet developments. The simulation model and a number of applications are discussed in this paper.
