Case Study


Like many hard-rock mines worldwide, the Chilean copper mine experienced significant production loss due to crusher obstructions caused by missing loader teeth. Thankfully, the mine was able to mitigate this risk with LoaderMetrics™ Missing Tooth Detection.

In this case study you will understand:

  • How loader teeth can break off and obstruct crushers.

  • Why crusher jams can result in significant financial losses.

  • How LoaderMetrics™ enabled the Los Pelambres mine to detect 12 missing loader teeth, mitigate ~144 hours of lost production, and experience no crusher downtime due to missing loader teeth during the study period.
