A large Latin American mining operation engaged training consultants to deliver simulator-based coaching. Upon return from training, there was no way to establish the impact of the adjusted behaviors, and no way to evaluate or influence the resulting benefit over time.
SmartRView platform enables mining professional to improve their maintenance strategies. A refined maintenance strategy including total fuel burn can reduce unnecessary maintenance while avoiding unplanned failures. Consider the benefit of eliminating a single unnecessary preventive maintenance event per asset per year.
Blutip first entered the mining space with a fuel-injection remapping service. To demonstrate and quantify the efficiency benefits attributable to this re-mapping, team members purchased, ruggedized and deployed fuel measurement and data collection equipment. The combination of high-precision real-time fuel measurement data, haul truck operational metrics and detailed statistical analysis allowed Blutip to successfully quantify attributable savings in the range of 2-5%. While the approach was reasonable for deployments of limited time and scale, the undertaking was extremely expensive, and equipment would typically fail within 6-months of commissioning. Despite this, customers and third-party vendors, most notably large petrochemical companies began to engage Blutip to perform similar efficiency impact assessments unrelated to Blutip product (Premium diesels, Synthetic lubricants etc.)
SmartRView Fuel meters yield accuracy and repeatability that outperform ECM fuel use models by as much as 10X (1000%). This measurement accuracy and the related data collection strategies, are fundamentally important to enabling high value business improvement use case execution.
McKinsey believes reducing variability in digital mining is crucial to efficiency. Here, we discuss one of the elements of a mine operation with significant variability - driver behaviour - and how SmartRView technology can help you measure and reduce that variability.
Driver behavior directly impacts both fuel burn and maintenance costs. Blutip's cloud-based SmartRView IoT system will notify you of alarm conditions on your dozers, haul trucks, and other vehicles, enabling real-time intervention and driver coaching.
Bring the power of the industrial internet of things ("IIOT") to your contract mining operation with Blutip's cloud-based SmartRView data portal and analytics system. Our lightweight, low cost platform requires no complex infrastructure or integration, so it is ideal for contract miners.
Many mining maintenance departments perform preventative maintenance based on elapsed time, engine hours, or easily observable indicators such as a check engine light.
Global carbon dioxide emissions grew 1.4% in the last year, reaching 32.5 gigatonnes after three years of remaining flat.
