Variability in ore type and changes in liner materials can impact the wear rates of the liners used to protect the inner walls of transfer and feed chutes. As a result, it can be difficult to accurately predict changeout times.
This can lead to excessive maintenance costs if liners are replaced while still in good condition, or damage to equipment if they are not replaced when completely worn.
Regular inspection of the liner condition can improve maintenance planning but often requires the plant to be stopped, which reduces productivity and poses a safety risk for the maintenance personnel who need to enter the chute.

Metso Outotec’s upcoming webinar looks at options available for the monitoring of wear in chute liners.
The company will discuss how access to information in real time can enable operators to manage the maintenance of wear surfaces in mining operations more efficiently.
The webinar will teach participants about the different options to monitor wear in chute liners and how to use real time wear information to optimise chute liner maintenance.
