IMPROVING RELIABILITY IN MINING

With prices for mined materials at a record high across the globe, mining and minerals companies are striving to meet demand by increasing production. Subsequently, this puts more strain on critical mining equipment as production targets increase.

Unreliable equipment can have a significant impact on production in the mining and minerals industries. Downtime is costly, especially when it brings production lines to a halt. That is why mining and minerals companies must do everything possible to improve reliability and keep equipment operational.

Many mines, quarries, concrete and asphalt plants choose to implement an effective Condition Based Maintenance (CBM) strategy to keep equipment available, while also ensuring the safety of staff. By extracting key insights from machinery, it is possible to predict and prevent failures and reduce maintenance costs in both short and long term planning.

The decision to implement CBM can depend on several factors, but a greater return on investment is often seen if your mine is experiencing some of the reliability challenges listed below.
