Help Extend the Life of your Mining Assets with Condition Based Monitoring
Mining production reliability is essential. Mining systems such as crushers, mills, conveyor belts, smelting, and more use large power assets that are essential to keeping production moving. Monitoring power assets can provide mining operations with the ability to see real-time data that shows the condition of their assets which can prevent unplanned outages and save millions of dollars.
Reduce the Risk of Unplanned Outages
Each power asset is critical in the mining process. If you stop one part of the plant, you stop production and lose millions of dollars per hour. Monitors collect real-time data on power assets which helps reduce the risk of unplanned outages or unexpected failures. Data helps effectively manage changing load conditions and contingency events. Monitors evaluate the assets across your network (switchgear, transformers, motors and pumps and more) and measure their performance to make sure everything is working properly. If something looks out of place, an alarm will notify you of the problem allowing mines to keep their sites working at optimal performance levels and reducing unnecessary downtime associated with time based predictive maintenance.
Delay Asset Replacements by Extending Their Life
Loss of electrical service can result in a huge loss of revenue. Online monitoring helps you see the condition of your assets so that you don’t have unexpected failures. This allows for the extended life of your asset, improving the return on original equipment investment.
Asset monitoring is easily managed on a visual dashboard to ensure ease of use.
Condition-Based Monitoring for Mines
There are many areas on a transformer that can be monitored. Dynamic Ratings’ experience and global expertise can help you determine the solution that meets your needs. We offer a variety of transformer monitoring options such as temperature, bushings, partial discharge, OLTC, key gas, through faults, harmonics, voltage control, and more.
Switchgear is a key asset in the substation and is links directly to the reliability of the power supply. Monitoring is easy to implement and will increase reliability, efficiency and safety in the workplace.
It is important for mines to have reliable motors. Online condition-based monitoring collects data generated during the assets normal operating conditions to get real-time awareness of problems.
DynamicMetrix® incorporates the experience of the Dynamic Ratings team to consolidate all your condition data, analyze the data in real time and deliver a complete fleet assessment while giving you the ability to obtain detailed information, make timely decisions and take the appropriate actions to maximize reliability, performance and the life of your assets.
Setting up proper communications is essential to the success of online monitoring. We have an option that is affordable, easy to install and secure. Our monitors have a variety of communication protocols available for your convenience.
Mining Production Facilities are a huge asset, distributed over a wide area. With the introduction of distributed energy resources (DERs), reduced budgets and high performance expectations a new paradigm shift has been required to address the growing challenges. Mines now need data more than ever to make best use of their assets.
