Problems reconciling CHPP vs Railing vs Shipping analyses?
The fundamental basis for reconciliation is to ensure valid samples are collected. Even the most precise and accurate analyses cannot remediate a sample that is not collected in accordance with established criteria that ensure every particle in the sample stream has an equal opportunity to be collected.
At A&B Mylec we have been conducting Sample Plant Compliance Audits as a NATA accredited Type A inspection body (that is, an independent body that neither owns, maintains, or operates the inspected sample plants) since 2008. Importantly, Type A inspection bodies can exercise professional judgement of audit observations as distinct from assessing compliance against a list of technical requirements.
We focus on a “Beyond Compliance” approach, meaning that ensuring your mechanical sample plants are compliant to the standards is only the start of the process that we have developed for achieving the best precision and accuracy of the production and operational analysis.
A combination of Compliance Auditing, Variogram Assessments, Bias Testing, Statistical Analysis (of production, railing and port data) and Laboratory Auditing are all important factors for obtaining best practice data to improve decision making.
Through this approach, A&B Mylec can assist in enhancing confidence in achieving production specifications, operational targets, and the overall coal quality management decision making.
