WearSense case study
Wireless real-time liner wear monitoring improves productivity, safety and profitability
Enables liner material to be fully utilized, minimizing unnecessary wastage.
Provides real-time forecast of wear and expected liner change-out timing.
No need to stop the equipment to perform wear plate inspections.
Reduces time exposure in confined space, hot works or working at heights.
Metso Outotec wireless wear sensors are simple to use and fully self-contained, with a battery lasting up to 5 years. They can be used with any ceramic or metallic liners and multiple installation options are available. The sensors have glass filled nylon housing for durability. We offer two different types of sensors:
The receiver communicates wirelessly with the sensors that can be located up to 300 meters away. Each receiver can support up to 100 sensors. The gateway collects the information from the receiver and sends it to the cloud. Multiple receiver units can be connected to a single gateway.
The easy-to-use interface gives you access to all the data you need about your liners’ wear performance. It also notifies you of potential issues and helps you predict when the liners need to be replaced.
The interface is accessible through a web app which makes it available from any computer or smart device with an internet connection. Features of the interface include:
Changing out wear liners can be a risky, costly and time consuming exercise, particularly in chutes with limited or no access to ...
Improve worker’s safety by eliminating manual handling while at the same time facilitating the quicker and easier replacement of wear liner.
Improve uptime and throughput by using high-quality metallic wear liners with an optimized design
Improve the lifetime of equipment, improve safety, reduce vibration and lower noise levels
Ceramic wear lining is designed to be extremely resistant to abrasion even in high material flows and speeds, preventing material build-up.
Polyurethane wear liners provide excellent wear resistance in applications with sliding wear while reducing noise and vibrations.
Polyethylene wear lining is an excellent solution for bins, chutes, silos and other low wear applications.
