Auto flux addition with advanced process control automation to Improve Yield

Challenge Summary

The metal manufacturing industry uses additives termed as flux in order to remove impurities in form of slag from the ore and provide fluidity to the molten metal in the furnace. For each type of metal there are different fluxes used and the optimum quantity is to be added to the given quantity of ore in order to achieve high purity and yield from the ore. Implementation of intelligent and autonomous technologies to compute and automate the addition of flux to achieve the necessary purity and manufacturing according to standards is required.
