Handbook: Wear protection solutions you can count on
Wear lining and sheeting
through better utilization of the liner material
thanks to predictions, items with long lead times can be ordered in advance
Using knowledge of historical wear profiles, or DEM simulations, wear sensors are installed at selected locations within the COS hopper. Sensors can be installed in existing liners or supplied as part of a new liner package. The WearSense system monitors the remaining liner thickness in real time while the equipment is operating and without having to empty the stockpile. Information from the WearSense system is displayed on a web app and provides the user with current liner thickness and the wear trend, which can be used to estimate the end of liner life.
The WearSense system provides insight into the current condition of wear liners through the strategic placement of wear sensors that monitor remaining thickness. Some of the benefits provided by the installation of WearSense in COS hoppers include:
