Metso is introducing a new solution to its Sense series portfolio of intelligent instruments: VertiSense, which enables real-time wear monitoring of screw liners and enhances the grinding process in Vertimill stirred mills.
The Sense series products are part of Metso’s Planet Positive offering, and are targeted at solving specific process challenges and enabling optimization of mineral and hydrometallurgical plant process performance.
The new release is easy to install, maintain and use. It monitors liner wear rate and provides frequent reporting on the screw liners to assist plant maintenance personnel. Its wear measurement functionality facilitates the prediction of service life and spare stock planning. Like the rest of the Sense series products, Metso said VertiSense is suited for both new and existing operations.
“We are excited to introduce VertiSense to our Sense series portfolio of specialized instruments that provide analytical data to better understand processes,” said Rodrigo Rizzoli, vice president, Stirred Mills & HPGR Services.
“VertiSense complements the series well and gives Vertimill stirred mill users a unique tool to maximize operational efficiency through intuitive software and analytics. What VertiSense does in practice is to ensure that wear parts are being replaced at the best time, thereby reducing waste and optimizing mill availability.”
The Metso Sense series portfolio covers the entire minerals and hydrometallurgical process, helping customers to maximize their profitability and minimize their operating costs and environmental risks. In total, Metso’s intelligent instruments include more than 10 technologies to optimize the mining process.
