An “exclusive active monitoring system” to allow mining companies to remotely monitor wear liners in real time was announced by manufacturers Abreco® at MINExpo 2021 in Las Vegas this week.
Abreco IoT is the latest innovation in mining technology that provides the status of all connected liners within a system, thus reducing requirements for physical inspections, Abreco says.
Wear liners can be monitored through the Abreco IoT exclusive and secure dashboard, allowing data such as active heat maps to be viewed from anywhere. Abreco IoT provides the status of all wear liners connected to the system with detailed information that enables forecasting planned outages with a high degree of precision, the company says.
The improved reliability that Abreco IoT provides for wear liner monitoring can greatly reduce downtime, which translates to substantial cost savings for mining companies, the company says.
“Abreco IoT virtually eliminates the downtime related to monitoring wear liners, makes wear liner inspections and maintenance safer and substantially reduces wear liner inspection costs and risks,” the company concluded.
