The Intelligent Mill Liner Bolt
Up until now, SAG mill operations have lacked the means to intelligently determine mill liner replacements, other than the "blind" option of shutting down production, clearing the feed chute and doing a full, physical inspection of the mill lining and its wear depth.
Brought to you by the world's foremost relining company Kaltech International the iBolt is designed to allow you to keep an "eye" on the high liner wear areas of your mill while the mill is running. The iBolt directly monitors the liner wear inside a running mill. This compliments and supports current monitoring methods, allowing for more accurate predictive wear and enhanced maintenance planning.
Increase Mill Efficiency and Production
All grinding mills at some point in time will experience accelerated liner wear in the high-wear zones that can result in structural mill damage. By placing the iBolts in these high-wear areas, this can become a thing of the past.
Improve Reline Prediction and Scheduling
The rate of liner wear fluctuates depending on ore type and other factors. Used as intended, the iBolt can be used to maximize functional liner life, by accurately monitoring liner wear and thus assisting with shutdown prediction and the optimization of reline planning.
Provide Peace of Mind
Customized iBolts for your mills will allow you to know and monitor with certainty the liner wear in your mill, while the mill is running. The iBolt will advise of a wear point as well as the rate of wear.
Those plants that desire to start the mill and run it for as long as possible between mill relines can use the iBolts to accurately monitor the progressive liner wear during this time.
