Introducing the Weir Motion Metrics
Ecosystem for Mines

The Weir Motion Metrics Ecosystem for Mines integrates several key data solutions at every stage of the mining process.
Our systems work together to create a detailed view of mining productivity and efficiency, while increasing safety and decreasing operational downtime associated with crusher jams and equipment maintenance.

Solutions For Each Stage Of The Process

Haulage Stage

As part of the Weir Motion Metrics solution ecosystem, users with authorized credentials can receive SMS and email boulder notifications, monitor truck volume for insight into shovel operator performance, and access particle size data from anywhere.

Particle Size Distribution

* Mines can improve production by up to six percent by adjusting the crusher gap. Results study that included plant validation by authors Gauti Asbjörnsson, Erik Hulthén, Magnus Evertsson, “Modelling and simulation of dynamic crushing plant behavior with MATLAB/Simulink” (2012).

Boulder Detection

* According to case studies of both a Peruvian and Kazakh copper mine, brief crusher delays caused by oversized material can add up to multiple days of lost production per year.

Carry-Back Sensing

* According to a study in Kazakhstan, production loss and extra fuel costs due to carryback can represent two percent or more of a mine’s production costs per year.

Load Alignment Monitoring

* Load misalignments can cause significant damage to truck structure and suspension while causing loose material to fall from the truck bed.
