Mineral processing technology provider Haver Australia will showcase its new mineral processing optimization service called Pulse at AIMEX in Sydney, Australia, next month, demonstrating the system’s ability to improve productivity in processing operations.
Pulse is a vibration analysis service that Haver says enables mining and aggregate companies to test and then optimize the performance of their vibrating screens to enhance productivity.
Pulse was developed by Haver Australia’s sister company Haver & Boecker Canada (formerly WS Tyler). WS Tyler processing equipment is in use at mineral processing operations across Australia.
Haver says 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. Haver says that by utilizing Pulse, processors can significantly extend service intervals and improve performance, minimizing downtime and maximizing 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 test results 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.
Haver Australia will exhibit its Pulse Vibration Analysis Technology at Stand 4307-03 in the VDMA German Pavilion at AIMEX from September 1-4.
