Scheduled maintenance and wear plates change-outs on bulk material handling machinery hashtagconveyors, hashtagstacker, hashtagreclaimer, hashtagTLO and hashtagshiploader) doesn’t prevent from failures between the shuts. Mine’s life fact.
But what if your wear plates will tell you how they currently feel and how much of a protective layer left?
Alloy Steel International is taking its Wear Liners to the next level and developing a Smart Wear Liner. Smart Wear Liners are equipped with compact well protected and powered for life microchip which monitors liner conditions and communicates the information through encrypted wireless data channels via web-based application right to desktop or smartphone.
The compact size of the electronics does not compromise a hard face thickness of the liner. Virtually any grade of currently manufacturing by ASI liners (alloy, ceramics, cast…) can be equipped with the chip and be ‘smart’. A new generation of wireless gateways allows us to cover large, metal intense mining production areas quickly and reliably.
