Conveyors are valuable assets that operate in tough environments, operate at low speeds, contain rolling element bearings and gearboxes, and have the potential for failure that cannot be predicted by traditional vibration. As an arterial system in your process, your bulk conveyors are the lifeblood of mine productivity, any disruption in their service has the potential to bring your process rolling to a stop. Mines with long, overland conveyors are especially susceptible to long periods of unplanned downtime when conveyor components fail. Determining failure mode can be time consuming and obtaining replacement parts can take days for miners in remote locations. Along with regular cleaning and inspections, your staff may perform periodic data collection on conveyor pulleys and gears. However, this practice frequently places them in harm’s way – capturing data that may not expose emerging machinery faults. 

Emerson's Technologies, supplied by Spartan, can provide vibration and stress wave analysis utilizing PeakVue on conveyors where standard vibration is of little value due to high background noise and slow speed. Additionally, embedded temperature sensors allow users to track material build up on bearing houses. Using the AMS 6500 condition-based monitoring system, your staff can continuously monitor critical drives, gearboxes, and pulleys from the safety of a centralized operations centre. The AMS 6500 exposes elevating machinery stress with a patented signal processing approach and surfaces real problems to your staff for corrective action.

For a safe and cost-effective data collection approach on semi-critical components the AMS 9420 wireless vibration transmitter supplies regular readings on equipment condition. Your maintenance staff can gain a view of emerging problem areas with information from both your online and wireless monitoring systems using a common software interface in the AMS Machinery Manager Software. 

The AMS 6500 Machinery Health Monitor is designed for process automation and protection system upgrade projects and combines prediction and protection in a single chassis. 

The rugged AMS 9420 Wireless Vibration Transmitter connects quickly, easily, and economically to any machine. It delivers vibration information over a highly-reliable, self-organizing wireless network for use by operations and maintenance personnel.

Vibration data collection and analysis is the accepted cornerstone to any predictive maintenance or reliability program. Emerson’s AMS 2140 takes those vibration measurements to the next level with simultaneous four-channel plus phase data collection and unique peak detection capabilities for the earliest indication of bearing and gearbox degradation.
