Boliden Bergsöe Reduced Pump Failures by 64%

Boliden Bergsöe pumps molten lead in a tough environment. The conditions wear down the equipment and there were about 60 pump renovations per year, all to considerable costs. With energy monitoring, breakdowns were reduced by over 64%.

Situation

Boliden Bergsöe pumps molten lead in a tough environment. The conditions wear down the equipment and there were about 60 pump renovations per year, all to considerable costs. With energy monitoring, breakdowns were reduced by over XNUMX%.

Solution

Via the SenseNode system, Boliden receives all the necessary information about the operating status. Plus, the data can be exported to maintenance systems or other relevant systems. This ensures persons in charge will receive the necessary information to make good decisions.

The Result

Pump failures have been reduced by over 64% during the project and Boliden is saving large amounts in renovation costs. Increased availability and saved working time have an even greater, but difficult to measure, value. 

"We can now see when a pump is starting to fail and plan for maintenance."

Mats Gustavsson

Production Planner, Boliden

The Result

Pump failures have been reduced by over 64% during the project and Boliden is saving large amounts just in renovation costs. Increased availability and saved working time have an even greater, but difficult to measure, value. The system can handle all kinds of meters and sensors for e.g. electrical parameters, vibrations, heat development, speed, etc.
