In an Engineering and Mining Journal Article, Shovel Service Suppliers Help Cut Costs, CO2, Emerson’s Tom Francisco joins other mining experts to describe ways to extend the life and improve maintenance practices on these critical assets for mining operators.
Cristián Doerr notes that many industries have dealt with the corrosive issues of salt water for decades and have learned over the years where they can get away with standard practices, and where they are better off investing in more corrosion resistance.
To drive improvements in safety and reliability, it’s important to get real-time insight in the health of the critical mining assets. Not only can additional sensors provide early indication of asset performance issues, the use of preconfigured applications that use machine learning algorithms to continuously analyze process data and condition-based data can alert decision makers to act before failures occur.
Emerson's Juan Carlos Bravo, a member of the metals and mining industry team, highlights the challenges in open pit mining and need to explore ever deeper. More and more we hear how the trend on mining is to go underground. More recently, the Wall Street Journal...
