Motornostix Installation on a Winder

Winders are critical for mining operations.  Motornostix sensors are permanently fixed to to the winder motor, bearings and drive train in order to measure vibration, acoustic emission (AE), temperature, current and rpm variations. The selected combination of measurements provide a well suited solution for condition monitoring of these slow rotating machines.

Typical measurement locations are on the Motor Drive End and Non Drive End, Gearbox (where present) Input Drive End and Non Drive End, Gearbox Output and Drum Drive End and Non Drive End as well as  winder rpm speed.

Typical failure modes that can be detected on winder installations include:

  • Motor - Winder misalignment
  • Coupling imbalance
  • Motor, gearbox or bearing loose foot
  • Roller bearing surface wear
  • Sleeve bearing surface damage
  • Current imbalance 

The Motornostix MHS system installed on a winders provide maintenance technician with information in a realtime manner to successfully act in a proactive way to attend to pending defects.
