Did you know that scheduled wear plates changeouts on bulk material handling machinery’s transfer points still doesn’t prevent from failures between the shuts? Or perhaps you are the one who schedules maintenance work for conveyors, stackers, reclaimers, TLOs and ship loaders and despites of spending significant business resources for the above still wish to know what’s happening inside your chutes, hoods, diverters and spill faces beforehand, so proper corrective actions can be planned and taken in order to avoid catastrophic failure?..
But what if your wear plates will tell you how they currently feel and how much of protective layer left?
Alloy Steel International being a leading company in manufacturing and supply of mining wear products is taking its Wear Liners to the next level and developing a Smart Wear Liner. Smart Wear Liners will be equipped with compact well protected and powered for life microchip which monitors liner condition and communicates the information through encrypted wireless data channel via web based application right to your desktop or smartphone. Due to compact size of the electronics hard face thickness of a liner is not compromised. Virtually any grade of currently manufacturing by ASI liners (alloy, ceramics, cast…) can be equipped with the chip and be ‘smart’. New generation of wireless gateways allows to cover large metal intense mining production areas quick and reliably.
