Pulse Condition Monitoring (Pulse CM) Monitors the Health of Vibrating Screens 24/7

July 1, 2024
Pulse Condition Monitoring (Pulse CM) technology from Haver & Boecker Niagra monitors the health of vibrating screens using modern algorithms and AI, providing accurate measurements and forecasts in an easy-to-digest manner.

Pulse Condition Monitoring (Pulse CM) technology monitors the health of vibrating screens using modern algorithms and artificial intelligence (AI). It provides accurate measurements and forecasts in an easy-to-digest manner.

Pulse CM is a wireless diagnostics tool that helps mineral processing operations be proactive, rather than reactive when it comes to maintenance efforts.

Pulse Condition Monitoring is the next level in the Pulse portfolio, accompanying the company's Pulse Vibration Analysis. Similar to Pulse Vibration Analysis, the Pulse CM system analyzes data to help users get the most out of their equipment. The difference is that Pulse CM uses permanently installed sensors to monitor equipment 24/7.

The system captures real-time information on monitored equipment and provides alerts via e-mail when it detects the first sign of potential problems. By constantly monitoring the accelerations of the vibration screen, it provides a forecast of the equipment's condition in intervals of 48 hours, 5 days, and 4 weeks. The system detects anomalies that will point a maintenance team to specific areas of the equipment that need attention. With consistent use, Pulse CM accurately points out and predicts critical issues and advises when to schedule maintenance, along with what to focus on during that planned downtime.

To collect all data from the body and drive components, it has a gateway that can connect with up to 20 wireless sensors, within a radius of up to 246 ft (75 m). Using a cellular signal or Wi-Fi from the plant, it sends all data to the Haver & Boecker Niagara cloud, available through the company's web app. The sensor configurations can be customized and placed on both the body and bearings of the vibrating screen. The gateway can also be positioned between two screens operating near one another.

Haver & Boecker Niagara’s accompanying app displays all the information in a portal, providing users with a full overview of equipment in real time. They can access detailed information specific to each of the body and bearing sensors to see the equipment's operating condition and health of each component.

  1. Pulse CM wireless bearing sensors and screen body sensors are installed at dedicated positions on the body and bearings of the vibrating screen.
  2. The bearing sensors acquire data every minute, while the screen body sensors acquire data every 5 minutes.
  3. The bearing sensors monitor RMS acceleration and velocity on the X, Y, and Z axes, temperature, power bands, peak-to-peak acceleration, and crest factor.
  4. The screen body sensors monitor acceleration and displacement on the X, Y, and Z axes, global acceleration and amplitude, frequency, and orbit motion.
  5. All data is saved to the web-based application.
