“The major pieces of equipment in a quarry or mining operation are rotator-based,” says BSC’s National Engineering Manager, Anthony O’Keefe. “Think of crushers, combiners, rollers, pumps – these and others are the fundamental pieces of equipment needed to get the job done.”

The reliability of rotating components is paramount in ensuring facility output is maintained without disruption.

“How do you ensure reliability? By monitoring the condition of your equipment. This won’t come as a revelation to anyone,” Anthony jokes.

And essential to condition monitoring is vibration analysis – the process of monitoring levels and patterns of the various vibration signals in all types of components – so that abnormal vibration events are detected, and existing or oncoming problems identified and fixed before it’s too late.
