Mining Process and Equipment Maintenance Made Simple

Category: Mining

Mining functions are complex and go far beyond your standard industrial business operations. These billion-dollar operations exist for one reason – to deliver and refine commodities, minerals, and materials that fuel society. While every new mining project has its own individual requirements and needs, they have one thing in common – the need to simplify processes at every stage of the process. This means automated processing, monitoring, and effective care of plants and machinery. Each of these can be achieved with Chesterton’s range of products, which together will supercharge your processes.

Set and Monitor with Chesterton Connect

Smart monitors are a must-have maintenance support tool that ensures processes continue efficiently. Chesterton Connect is an advanced device designed to monitor asset processes continually, capturing real-time data 24/7 and providing valuable information about:

  • Process pressures
  • Process temperatures
  • Equipment vibration
  • Surface temperatures

Uses include: 

  • Spot issues to allow early intervention to uptime threats
  • Pinpoint issues that cause difficult-to-discover failures
  • Predict potential future problems via data trends
  • Allow for preventative action to extend productivity
  • Detect processing instabilities early
  • Prioritise equipment maintenance easily
  • Modernise plant operations
  • Assist in cost reduction

Centralised Control is available via the user-friendly mobile app connected to multiple sensors to provide a comprehensive view of plant equipment and health. Alerts are sent to maintenance to warn of current or upcoming issues with equipment functionality, reducing downtime at your mine site.

Avoid Bearing Failure with LubriCupAutomatic Grease Dispensers

LubriCup are designed as another point of automation. When installed, these units deliver a precise amount of industrial grease or oil to where it is needed in machinery. This eliminates human error and the cause of premature bearing failure – over and under -greasing, providing reliable, automated, and efficient lubrication.

  • Choose from single or multiple-point lubricators
  • Simple to install and easy to use
  • Available in nitrogen-driven disposable units or electro-mechanical units with replaceable service packs

Ideal for:​

  • Environments where access is hazardous or inconvenient
  • Contaminated areas or processes
  • Ensuring reliable lubrication when your plant faces staff or PM shortages
  • Applications where reliability is critical
