SysCAD is used in a wide range of industries. A few are highlighted here followed by a more detailed list.

Industries Alumina

Alumina

SysCAD Alumina Add-on includes a detailed industry specific precipitation unit operation for predicting crystallization of the hydrate. The Bayer Properties model is used for calculating thermodynamic properties of liquors within an Alumina refinery.

Industries Potash

Potash

SysCAD Potash Add-on includes an industry specific Evaporator and Crystallizer unit operations. The Potash Properties model is used for calculating thermodynamic properties and solubilities of solutions within a Potash circuit.

Industries Sugar

Sugar Factories

SysCAD Sugar Add-on includes multiple industry specific unit operations such as Cane Shredder, Crystalizer, Juice Screen and Vacuum Pan. The Sugar Properties model is used for calculating thermodynamic properties and solubilities of solutions within a Sugar factory.

Industries Base Metals

Base Metals

SysCAD has been used extensively to model hydrometallurgical process plants including circuits for the recovery of base metals. In studies, design and operations SysCAD has provided value for production of base metals including Copper, Lead, Nickel and Zinc.

Industries Speciality

Speciality

SysCADs development and history has led to a focus on mining and recovery of some specific, often strategic, metals such as those listed below. SysCAD is used to design, develop, analyse and optimise different circuit designs and technologies for the recovery of these elements such as Lithium, Rare Earth Elements and Uranium.

Related Processes

Related Processes

Many mineral processing plants include significant “utility” processes such as integrated Power Plants, Acid Plants and Water Treatment circuits. Get the whole story by modelling all of these processes in SysCAD.┬áThese can be modelled stand-alone or as part of a full refinery model.

Other

As a general purpose processing simulator, SysCAD can be used for modelling any type of refinery for extraction or production of minerals and compounds.
