Quarry Prevents Downtime Due to Storms with 24/7 Web-Monitoring Tool
On cold rainy nights, most of us are on the couch with popcorn and a good movie. But for many quarry operators, the uncertainty of whether or not the dewatering pump systems are working correctly can fuel anxiety. To mitigate the risks of equipment failure and costly downtime, it’s necessary to perform manual inspections of dewatering basins in the rain at all hours, leading to sleepless nights. The risk mitigation planning team at IMI Aggregates, a division of Irving Materials, found a better way to oversee and prevent potential issues from happening to their operations using a Regal® PTS Perceptiv™ 24/7 monitoring solution.
This monitoring system provides instant notifications of such problems as pump failure, power outages, phase loss and rising water to provide predictive warnings before an overflow or flooding situation can occur. With help from Regal PTS Perceptiv team, the quarry team was able to implement this cost-effective 24/7 monitoring solution to provide visibility to pump operation, water levels, motor phase loss and motor power. Personnel can check the quarry’s dewatering basin pump health and water levels from anywhere with a web browser or internet connection on any smartphone, tablet or computer. This has helped Irving Materials stay ahead of trouble, create better outcomes, gain productivity and stay dry. Click to read the full article…
