PDCS Upgrade Improves Electrolyte Purification System Performance

ASARCO's copper refinery in Amarillo, Texas, is capable of refining nearly 500,000 tons of copper anode and scrap each year. Built in 1974, the refinery installed its electrolyte purification facility in 1993 to improve the quality of the refining process. Twenty years later, the purification system was in need of an upgrade.
Challenge
The ASARCO refinery houses 2,400 cells to carry out conventional electrowinning in which thin, pure copper cathode sheets are suspended in tanks filled with electrolyte solution and the anodes are inserted. When the anodes are charged with electric current, their copper atoms plate the cathode sheets. After 14 days, the cathodes reach a salable weight and are removed. A new cathode sheet is inserted and the process begins anew. "The primary outcome of the process is the pure copper cathode," said Jim Williams, project manager, ASARCO. "But there are also byproducts-small quantities of other metals and minerals-that vary depending on the composition of the ore body.
Solution
ASARCO called on Prime Controls, a Rockwell Automation Solution Partner, to design the new purification control system. "Our goal was to design a control solution on a single platform that could handle every phase of the bismuth recovery process", said Trinidad Cruz, regional manager, Prime Controls. To replace the existing DCS system, Prime Controls designed and installed a PlantPAx process automation system from Rockwell Automation
