pulse vibration

Haver & Boecker announces a three-year leasing option for its Pulse vibration analysis service programme, giving mining and aggregate customers insight to their equipment’s performance.

The leasing options, basic and professional, fit small and large operations. Both programmes include an industrial-grade tablet computer, eight tri-axial sensors, a monthly maintenance package and optional expert analysis reports.

Haver & Boecker designed the Pulse programme specifically to monitor the health of vibrating screens to ensure optimum screening performance and equipment durability. The reporting and historical tracking of the machine’s performance gives customers the information needed to maximise uptime and productivity, significant contributors to profitability.

"We understand screening equipment is a significant portion of an operation’s budget, which is why we developed the Pulse leasing programme," said Karen Thompson, president of Haver & Boecker Canada. "The Pulse leasing option offers customers 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."

The Pulse 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.

For an additional cost, the Haver & Boecker engineering team will analyse the results. The team then provides the customer with a report that includes a thorough examination of the machine’s performance and recommendations for improvement. If the results require further examination, a Haver technician will schedule an on-site inspection.

For easy accessibility, customers can store all vibration analysis reports electronically in an online database, the Pulse Information Portal. The customer can download machine data in two formats. The first format is the Orbit Report, which provides a visual of orbit and wave form, as well as data about acceleration, stroke, speed and phase angle. The software processes Fast Fourier Transformation (FFT) plots for values for three channels of data for each measuring point. The second format is the Tuning Report, which extrapolates side to side, feed to discharge and diagonal deviations between measurement points while providing recommendations on balance, acceleration, stroke and speed.

Haver & Boecker designed Pulse for easy setup and operation in difficult environments where screening takes place.
