Performance data provided by extra sensors fitted to a prototype vibrating screen is substantially improving the understanding of screen operation. It is also giving indicators around the overall performance of the processing cycle.
Designed and developed in Australia by Schenck Process, the prototype screen is undergoing site trials. The company believes this new screen has the potential to change the way vibrating screens are developed and operated.
The standard condition-monitoring system comprises two sensor nodes, including six degrees of freedom MEMS accelerometers, a high-resolution accelerometer and a temperature probe. On the prototype screen, four additional sensors have been fitted, one on each corner.
