Metso unveils Metrics for screening equipment
By Lewis Tyler07 November 2022
Metrics, a cloud-based monitoring system from Metso Outotec, has been updated to cover screening equipment.
An advanced analytics platform, Metrics is said to enable operators, controllers and service professionals to see real-time analysis of vibrating screen performance and bearing condition.
Metrics allows users to monitor capabilities of machines remotely and, according to the company, can improve safety, increase uptime and throughput, as well as reduce unplanned maintenance to ensure that the equipment performs at an “optimal level”.
The latest update means the solution will now cover tools, sensors and dashboard access for monitoring stationary screening equipment.
It is also the first iteration of Metrics that includes instrumentation from Dynamox, with which Metso signed a global cooperation agreement with earlier this year.
The Finnish company says the update means it can now provide support to customers when making data-driven decisions that impact screening operations.
Jan Wirth, technology director with Metso Outotec’s Screening Solutions business said: “Metrics for screens helps customers to optimise their process, as they can easily see how the changes implemented have impacted their screening operations.
“In addition, continuous monitoring helps in the avoidance of several potential breakdowns. It also has a positive impact on sustainability, as running the screen in an optimal way enables increased uptime and less consumption of media, spare parts, oil and energy.
“Our strong development roadmap will enable us to release more data-driven and value-added services soon.”
