Metal Company pump failures Decreased by 64%

“We can now see when a pump starts to break down and plan maintenance based on statistics.”

Mats Gustavsson

Production Planner, Boliden

Situation

Boliden Bergsöe pumps melt lead in a tough environment. The situation tears on the equipment.
Boliden previously had 60 pump renovations per year, all which come with considerable costs.

Solution

Through SenseNode systems, Boliden gained all the necessary data about their operating status. Data can also be exported to maintenance systems or other relevant systems. Everything so that managers can get
the support they need to make decisions.

Results

Pump damage was reduced by more than 64% in the project and Boliden now saves large amounts only in renovation costs. The system paid for itself in a few months. Increased availability and saved hours are even more subtle but measurable value. The system can handle all types of gauges and sensors, for example, electrical parameters, vibration, heat, speed, etc.

Vi kan nu se när en pump börjar gå sönder och planera underhåll. Får email larm från Sensenode om underhållsbehov. Vid motorhaveri kan vi lätt följa upp vad som hände strax inna haveriet.
