Predictive Maintenance Solutions for Mine Inspections

Mechanical failure in mining operations has serious consequences. To ensure high levels of safety, reliability, and productivity, everything from critical run-of-mine equipment to auxiliary components must be regularly tested.

But calendar-based approaches are time-consuming and costly. Often, this results in issues going undetected for months, greatly compromising the safety of mining processes.

Key fact: Mining maintenance costs can account for over 50% of total mine operating costs

Maintenance inspections and process safety management can be carried out with minimal downtime by using predictive maintenance solutions, which automatically assess the condition of assets and components, ensuring overall operating health of the mining site.

Fleet management systems are one solution that’s used to monitor production, maintenance, and safety. Ultrasonic technology also plays a role, such as in the use of short ultrasonic pulse-waves to detect machinery flaws, and ultrasonic cleaners, which efficiently remove grease, oil, char, dust, and mud from heavy mining equipment.

Key fact: Predictive maintenance can take overall equipment effectiveness (OEE) from 50-75% to over 90%

Process safety management measures, like geofencing and PPE detection, also ensure ongoing efficiency in mines by reducing safety risks, thereby minimising the threat of downtime.
