Article on condition monitoring of grinding mill in Uptime Magazine

In a recent issue, Uptime Magazine published an article on how Swedish mining company Boliden successfully implements a combination of shock pulse and vibration monitoring to maximize uptime on a process-critical grinding mill in the Garpenberg mine.

This Boliden mine is currently in the midst of a major expansion, where ore production will increase from 1.4 to 2.5 million metric tons of ore per year. In this process, condition monitoring plays a vital part in maximizing availability and securing production.

The article is based on a case study of a low-speed autogenous grinding mill in Garpenberg in central Sweden.
