How to extend the life of Industrial pumps - repair, rebuild and reclaim

Pumps are a critical component of any mining and manufacturing operation. When pumps are not running efficiently, the plant is not running efficiently. This webinar prepared by the LOCTITE team at Henkel Australia will discuss the most common causes of pump failure in industrial applications and application solutions that specifically address these problems. Their goal is to provide you with a best practice guideline on how businesses can improve the proficiency and life cycle of their pumps thought the effective use of appropriate product solutions.

The Five Most Powerful Data Science Techniques to Unleash Value in Your Resource Project (And it’s not all about Machine Learning!)


We’ve heard it all before, to get value from your resource project you need Machine Learning. 

Whilst Machine Learning has an important role to play, there is much more that can be used to gain full value from data across the lifecycle of a resource project. Whether this is managing multiple ever-changing scenarios at feasibility stage, single silo /cross silo process control optimisation, short interval control optimisation or techno economic modelling linking market supply to operational demands; this webinar will provide context and insights. It will explore what is possible and also provide an introduction to the most powerful and relevant data science techniques required to solve each of these challenges.

The thought-leaders will also discuss the secret sauce, without which many data science projects unfortunately will deliver underwhelming outcomes. 

The webinar will be presented by world class experts in their respective fields and know from experience what actually works.
