SMART DOG MININGTM

It takes a smart dog to find hidden treasures

Software Tools

Currently available tools:

  • SDM Sluice Calculations: Perform basic sluice calculations. Depending on the slope and water depth flowing through the sluice, determine what length is needed for different particle sizes.  download

 

  • SDM  Bins & Stockpile Calculations: Calculate stockpile capacities, bin sizes, and optimal plate arrangements.  download

 

  • SDM Mill Calculations: Perform ball, rod, pebble, AG, and SAG calculations (currently in imperial units only).  Also calculate gross grinding energy requirements from Bond  work index , feed and product size.  download

 

  • SDM Cyclone Sizing: Cyclone Performance calculation spreadsheet.  Calculate hydrocyclone performance by desired capacity, cyclone diameter, or specify cyclone dimensions.  Now US or SI units. download

 

  • SDM Screen Sizing: Vibrating screen sizing and analysis spreadsheet.  By specifying desired performance requirements determine the appropriate vibrating screen area needed, for up to size (6) decks.  download

 

  • SDM Pipe Calculations(ANSI): Determining the dimensions and characteristics of ANSI pipe sizes, and determining the economical pipe size for a set of conditions.  Also V and Rectangular weir calculations. download

 

  • SDM Pipe Calculations (SI): Determining the dimensions and characteristics of ANSI pipe sizes, and determining the economical pipe size for a set of conditions.  Also V and Rectangular weir calculations. Download

 

  • SDM Pulp Calculations: Perform pulp calculations (English units) and determine free and hindered settling rates. download

 

  • SDM Process Sim: A manual spreadsheet for predicting coal preparation plant performance, it goes with Predicting Plant Performance under the Mining Engineers Notebook. Download
