JILS - Condition Monitoring of Bulk Handling Conveyors - Tradition and Trends

Thursday 11 March 2021

Both Face to Face and Webex presentation

Bulk-handling conveyors have been an essential part of mining operations for centuries. Despite the passage of time, and opportunity for improvement the most substantial innovation has been the inclusion of ball bearings, leaving conveyors as one of the most likely points of failure in Pit-to-Port product delivery.

MineSensor™ is a patented miniature wireless solution that retro-fits on conveyor rolls, measuring the bearing temperature and shell-wear periodically, helping to bring the bulk-handling conveyor into the modern IoT world.

In this talk, the approach, and challenges in making a miniature retrofittable transponder rugged, reliable, and low-cost in a very harsh environment are discussed.
