Despite normal rotation frequencies and equipment degradation rates are relatively low there is still demand for equipping of mining industry machinery, which is most important for manufacturing process, with the systems for equipment condition monitoring. This demand is determined by the security requirements and significant reduction in costs of maintenance of the machinery equipped with the systems for monitoring and diagnostics.
There is positive experience of operation of stationary systems for equipment condition monitoring in mining and mining-chemical industry. Mining plants are equipped with the systems for condition monitoring including those based on the methods of nondestructive testing. These systems can evaluate technical condition of process equipment during operation and provide the personnel with the information on technical condition of process equipment in real-time mode, as in many enterprises of oil and gas processing industry.
The article deals with the approaches to condition monitoring of working machines of mining industry. As mentioned in the article, the use of technology developed by DYNAMICS Scientific & Production Center (SPC) using the COMPACS® systems enables application of the most significant process and low-charged equipment in the optimum way and cost-effectively. Fail-safety of the enterprise increases along with the decrease in the cost of fixed assets maintenance. That results in capitalization and increase of profitability of the company.
