In­spec­tion & Test­ing

The Australian Mining Review - - CONTENTS -

WITH ever grow­ing pres­sures on min­ing op­er­a­tions, com­pa­nies are ex­tend­ing the life of their equip­ment by lever­ag­ing Eriez’ ser­vice ca­pa­bil­i­ties.

Its tech­ni­cians can in­spect equip­ment on-site or the cus­tomer can de­liver their equip­ment in-fac­tory for a strip and in­spect.

Eriez pro­vides a de­tailed re­port out­lin­ing the best cour­ses of ac­tion.

This may mean pre­ven­ta­tive main­te­nance or re­plac­ing mi­nor com­po­nents, up­dat­ing elec­tron­ics, or car­ry­ing out a com­plete re­build to orig­i­nal OEM spec­i­fi­ca­tions.

All re­pairs and re­fur­bish­ments are cov­ered by an Eriez war­ranty.

Most im­por­tantly, Eriez un­der­stands the dan­gers as­so­ci­ated with han­dling per­ma­nent mag­nets.

Its per­son­nel are spe­cially trained and fol­low spe­cific job safety pro­ce­dures to prop­erly han­dle high-strength mag­netic el­e­ments.

Eriez should al­ways be con­tacted prior to any dis-as­sem­bling or when han­dling mag­netic equip­ment to help en­sure safety is para­mount. Down­time equals loss of pro­duc­tion. Eriez in­spec­tions and per­for­mance au­dits im­prove equip­ment avail­abil­ity by avoid­ing un­sched­uled down­time.

Its tech­ni­cians have an un­par­al­leled level of skill and knowl­edge un­der­stand­ing the ap­pli­ca­tion and lim­its of mag­netic equip­ment.

Eriez is ded­i­cated to its re­search and de­vel­op­ment pro­grams that de­liver tech­nol­ogy im­prove­ments for the in­dus­try.

Ad­vance­ments in tech­nolo­gies and in­no­va­tions are of­ten im­ple­mented as up­grades dur­ing re­build pro­cesses.

An early in­no­va­tion was the ex­ter­nal oil ex­pan­sion tank de­vel­oped for its sus­pended elec­tro­mag­nets (SE).

This en­sures that the mag­net coils al­ways stay com­pletely sub­merged, thus pre­vent­ing mois­ture in­fil­tra­tion and coil burn-outs.

Sub­se­quently, Eriez SE mag­nets run cooler, are stronger, and last longer than the com­pe­ti­tion.

The com­pany has also retro­fit­ted ex­pan­sion tanks to com­peti­tor SE’s to boost per­for­mance.

Eriez can im­prove the mag­netic power of wet drum mag­netic sep­a­ra­tors with en­hanced cir­cuit de­sign and bet­ter-qual­ity mag­nets.

The per­for­mance of vi­bra­tory feed­ers is im­proved with new en­ergy sav­ing com­po­nents; metal de­tec­tors are im­proved with soft­ware up­dates; and smart phone tech­nol­ogy can feed­back real time data to en­hance main­te­nance and op­er­at­ing pro­cesses.

Get­ting the max­i­mum life de­pends on the equip­ment, its work­ing con­di­tions, duty and op­er­at­ing en­vi­ron­ment.

Process equip­ment rep­re­sents a sig­nif­i­cant cap­i­tal in­vest­ment, and an­nual in­spec­tions are manda­tory to main­tain them in peak work­ing or­der, to iden­tify any loom­ing is­sues and for the pos­si­bil­ity of process im­prove­ments.

Reg­u­lar equip­ment checks, process au­dits and in-plant cer­ti­fi­ca­tions by Eriez will help max­imise life.

Eriez has the com­plete in-house ca­pa­bil­ity nec­es­sary to ser­vice, re­pair and re­fur­bish dam­aged equip­ment quickly, ac­cu­rately, and safely.

As good as new sus­pended elec­tro­mag­netic re­pair.
