- Rugged surveillance and in-vehicle computing for mining
The right controller solution is essential for effective monitoring on mine sites. Power over Ethernet-based camera set-ups represent an increasingly popular option, offering ruggedness, high performance and flexibility benefits.
- Industry 4.0: Industrial internet of things (IIoT) and Predictive Analytics
The industrial world is on the verge of entering the next revolution: Industry 4.0. This is going to change control systems architecture, systems connectivity and sensors as we know it today.
- Gas monitoring solutions in underground mining environment
The presence of flammable and toxic gases inside an underground mine can bring upon several health-related to the on-site workers.
- Thickener vs clarifier: what’s the difference?
Thickeners and clarifiers are both used to separate solids and liquid, but how do they differ? Simply put, thickeners focus on the settled solids, and clarifiers focus on the clear overflow liquid.
- Stalker super heavy duty pump: The right solution for underground mining
Traditionally, mine operators have relied on progressive cavity pumps (PCP’s) to dewater underground as they are able to deliver a set volume to a reasonably high head. A standard centrifugal pump, which is able to deliver the flow required, will be limited in head due to rotational speed constraints.
- Essential guide to benefits in mining and resources
Attracting and retaining employees is a challenge for most industry sectors. In mining and resources, where demand for skills is growing, the pressure of renewed industry growth on a limited skills pool is perhaps one of the greatest challenges for HR leaders in the sector. Salary packaging may be the talent acquisition and retention solution … Continue reading Essential guide to benefits in mining and resources
- Convert project closeout into future project success
Quick question: how many phases are there in a project? Theory states five: concept, planning, execution, performance monitoring and closeout. In reality, though, most projects consider just two: planning and execution. To download the white paper, fill out the form below:
- Lokset®: A history of reliability
Today polyester resin anchors are used almost exclusively in the underground coal mining industries around the world, when rockbolts are used as primary support. In the underground metalliferous mining industry, polyester resin anchored rockbolts are rapidly gaining acceptance. Polyester resin anchors are used in preference to cement and mechanical type anchors because of the many … Continue reading Lokset®: A history of reliability
- Hydraulic Cylinder Repair: The Complete Guide
Hydraulic cylinders are some of the most hardworking components in any operation. We ask a lot of these simple actuators. They are often required to run at high duty cycles, with extreme pressure loads in tough environments. There are many reasons for a hydraulic cylinder to fail including fluid contamination, seal failure, bent or scored … Continue reading Hydraulic Cylinder Repair: The Complete Guide
- How AI + HI Drives More Realistic Plans
Artificial intelligence (AI) is being utilised in construction project planning. But human intelligence (HI) is an equally important element in creating more realistic and achievable plans. Read our brochure and learn how AI + HI can boost a planner’s confidence in on-time, on-budget project delivery.
- Mobilaris Onboard™ enables real-time information for everyone in the mine
Can you find your way? If you are an experienced miner, you can probably find your way most of the time in the mine. On the other hand, if you are not familiar with the mine (a new employee, subcontractors etc), it is not easy to find your way around and you might need assistance … Continue reading Mobilaris Onboard™ enables real-time information for everyone in the mine
- Replacing crusher nuts and bolts with safety and productivity as paramount
Since the development of the Gyratory Crusher, Mineral Processing Industries have sought better means to effectively and safely replace/tighten crusher head nuts, clamp nuts, cam nuts and bolts. Minprovise, in strategic partnership with Technofast Industries, have successfully developed the EziTite®rRange of hydraulic nut and bolt systems to revolutionise current industry practices for crusher nut replacements … Continue reading Replacing crusher nuts and bolts with safety and productivity as paramount
- A Better Way to Manage Project Documents
As capital and maintenance projects become more complex, so does the amount of documentation connected to those projects. The number of emails, documents, specs, plans and photos is growing exponentially. And often, all that critical information is being stored in siloed systems, making it increasingly hard to find. However, owners and contractors are adopting digital … Continue reading A Better Way to Manage Project Documents
- Designing explosion rated ventilation seals for coal mines
It is a universally recognised principle of underground coal mine safety that there must be proper ventilation of the mine.
- How are you managing your tailings dam?
The volume of tailings release due to dam failure has been trending upwards since the 1970s, with quantities of material released reaching an average of over three million cubic meters per failure since 2010.
