Haver & Boecker Niagara introduced a new component to its Pulse portfolio that is designed to monitor the health of vibrating screens using modern algorithms and AI.

According to Haver & Boecker Niagara, Pulse condition monitoring is a wireless diagnostics tool that provides accurate measurements and forecasts, helping mineral processing operations to be proactive rather than reactive with their maintenance.

“Haver & Boecker Niagara has a history of developing solutions to help producers increase their uptime,” says Thiago Buoso, Haver & Boecker Niagara project and sales engineer. “Unexpected downtime is a huge source of lost revenue for producers, so we aim to create products and technology that prevent that. Additionally, there is a lack of reliable systems like this on the market. Pulse condition monitoring is the most detailed, accurate monitoring system available to customers.”

More about the technology

Similar to Pulse vibration analysis, Haver & Boecker Niagara says Pulse condition monitoring analyzes data to help users get the most out of their equipment. Unlike Pulse vibration analysis, Pulse condition monitoring uses permanently installed sensors to monitor equipment 24/7.

The system captures real-time information on monitored equipment and provides alerts by email when it detects the first sign of potential problems. By constantly monitoring the accelerations of the vibration screen, Pulse condition monitoring provides a forecast of the equipment’s dynamic condition in intervals of 48 hours, five days and four weeks.

The system detects anomalies that point an operation’s maintenance team to specific areas of the equipment that may require attention. And, with consistent use, Haver & Boecker Niagara says Pulse condition monitoring will accurately point out and predict critical issues and advise when to schedule maintenance, along with what to focus on during that planned downtime.

An accompanying app displays information in a portal that provides users with an overview of equipment in real time. Users can access detailed information specific to each of the body and bearing sensors to identify the equipment’s operating condition and the health of each component.

Where to learn more?

Haver & Boecker Niagara intends to highlight Pulse condition monitoring alongside other mineral processing products and services at ConExpo-Con/Agg. The company will exhibit in the Silver Lot (Booth S5948) outside the Las Vegas Convention Center during the March 14-18 trade show.
