Haver & Boecker Niagara offers its Pulse Vibration Analysis (VA) software, giving mining and aggregate operations insight to their equipment’s performance. The Pulse VA program is specifically designed to examine the health of a vibrating screen to ensure optimum screening performance and equipment reliability. Pulse VA detects irregularities that could translate into diminished performance, decreased efficiency, increased operating costs and imminent breakdown.
Haver & Boecker Niagara will showcase Pulse VA at its booth 7301 in Central Hall at MINExpo 2021, 13 – 15 September, in Las Vegas.
“We understand screening equipment is a significant portion of an operation’s budget, which is why we developed Pulse VA,” said Karen Thompson, President of Haver & Boecker Niagara’s North American and Australian operations. “Pulse VA offers operations the tools to optimise screening efficiency on a daily basis. This helps increase their operation’s profitability by minimising downtime, as well as maintenance costs.”
Designed to be easy to operate, with components specifically chosen and engineered for the harsh environment where screening takes place, the Pulse VA system uses an industrial-grade tablet computer that connects wirelessly with eight tri-axial sensors. The sensors attach to key places on the equipment and send up to 24 channels of data to the tablet, which displays a real-time view of the machine’s orbit, acceleration, deviations and more.
Beyond the real-time view on the screen, all of the information from the sensors is electronically stored in the database for an easily-accessible historical overview of the machine. The information can be downloaded online in two report formats. The Orbit Report provides a visual of orbit and wave form, as well as data about acceleration, stroke, speed and phase angle. Fast Fourier transformation, or FFT, plots are processed by the software for values for three channels of data for each measuring point. The Tuning Report extrapolates deviations between measurement points while providing recommendations on balance, acceleration, stroke and speed. It provides feed and discharge analysis as well as diagonal measurements.
Haver & Boecker Niagara also offers its signature Pulse Vibration Analysis Service program to help customers achieve production targets, minimise unscheduled downtime and demonstrate sustainable improvements through online asset management. The service program includes a complete vibrating screen inspection by a Haver & Boecker Niagara certified service technician. Following the inspection, customers receive a Pulse Diagnostic Report, which provides an analysis of their vibrating screen and detailed recommendations to prevent downtime. All Pulse Diagnostic Reports are stored in an online asset management system, giving customers access to a complete record of their vibrating screens’ service and performance histories. This information allows customers to maximise uptime and productivity, and as a result, increase profitability.
Pulse VA technology serves as a critical part of PROcheck, Haver & Boecker Niagara’s comprehensive service process dedicated to keeping customers’ operations running at peak performance. PROcheck applies Haver & Boecker Niagara’s expertise in diagnostics, processing equipment, engineered screen media, original parts, rebuilds and upgrades, services, plants and process engineering to inspect customers’ screening processes in order to recommend best practices for processing proficiency. An evaluation can be completed quickly, and, if necessary, even while equipment is operating.
