How it works
Success stories

Crusher overloading detected

Challenge

The customer was at risk for severe bushing damage fo their crusher due to high power overload events.

Solution

Analysis showed power draw set points were out of range.  The customer was instructed to revert back to recommended parameter values.

Result

The customer onsite team followed the given instructions and costly damage to the bushing was averted.

Early detection of a hydraulic problem

Challenge

A hydraulic leak was progressively getting worse and approaching a point where the equipment would have to be brought to a complete stop.

Solution

The leak was detected by predictive analytics prior to being detected by the local control system.  The customer was given instructions on how to solve the issue.

Result

The onsite team followed the instructions and fices issue without causing additional downtime.

Monitoring helped present foundation damage

Challenge

One corner of the customer's crusher showed abnormal vibration amplitude and frequency.

Solution

The customer was instructed to inspect the crusher based on abnormal measurements.

Result

The crusher was shut down for inspection and an issue with the installation was confirmed.  Due to the early detection, costly and time-consuming foundation damage was prevented and rectified saving costs.

Cloth failure detection

Challenge

A hole in the cloth was detected which was causing premature wear due to slurry leakage.

Solution

The hole was detected by a remote service engineer through data analysis and the finding was communicated to the customer

Result

The customer inspected the filter and confirmed the finding.  Because of the early detection, premature wear was limited/avoided and unplanned downtime was reduced.

Courier accuracy and reliability improved

Challenge

The customer's production performance was heavily dependent on the accuracy and availability of their Courier.

Solution

Metso Outotec Metrics for the Courier was integrated with a larger analyzer LCS to establish continuous and holistic support.

Result

The Courier availability was 97-99% for more than 24 months, increased recovery* based on accurate online data.

*Achieving a recovery increase of e.g. 0.5% can result in an additional profit of 3.5MUSD

(example based on assumed copper processing with a production throughput of 1000t/h, a head grade of 1%, a market price of 3.5USD/lb, a recovery rate of 85%, and AISC 2USD/lb)
