Mineral processing technology provider, Haver Australia, will showcase its new mineral processing optimisation service at AIMEX next month, demonstrating the system’s ability to improve productivity in processing operations.
The new service, known as Pulse, is a vibration analysis service that enables mining and aggregate companies to test and then optimise the performance of their vibrating screens to enhance productivity.
Pulse was developed by Haver Australia’s sister company Haver & Boecker Canada (formerly W.S. Tyler). W.S. Tyler processing equipment is in use at mineral processing operations across Australia.
Pulse monitors the health of vibrating screens to ensure optimum screening performance and equipment durability.
Changing screen media products, unbalanced machines and machine damage that is undetectable to the eye are some of the key contributing factors to machine wear and damage and inefficient operations. By using Pulse, processors can significantly extend service intervals and improve performance, minimising downtime and maximising productivity and profits.
The system consists of an industrial-grade tablet computer that uses wireless technology to connect with sensors attached to key areas on the screening machine. The sensors send 24 channels of data to the tablet to immediately illustrate the machine’s orbit, acceleration, deviations and more.
If the results of the test are good, the client has reassurance that the machine is healthy. If improvements are required, a service call is scheduled for a Haver technician to examine the machine in person.
The system was developed to be easy to operate and components were specifically chosen and engineered for the harsh environments where screening takes place.
