Vibration Sensors for the Mining Industry

Rugged Vibration Sensors used for Mining and Heavy Industry

Mining in Australia and New Zealand utilises many varieties of industrial rotating machinery. This machinery is most commonly used to extract the raw materials and then process the valuable metals and minerals that have been dug from the earth.

In the day to day cycle of common rotating machinery used in mining such as; ventilation fans, pulleys, gearboxes, crushers, motors, drives, pumps, vibrating screens, etc… the mining machinery can often be subjected to several degrees of vibration, from slight to severe.

By monitoring even minor changes in the vibrations of the mining machinery, management and maintenance can avoid unplanned, unscheduled and excessively costly downtime. Not to mention; create a safer working environment for their staff and contractors. Health is your Wealth after all… both for people, and rotating mining machinery!
