Sensor selection - Mining, Mineral Processing and Cement industries

Following are the top features required of a quality vibration sensor in the Mining, Mineral Processing and Cement industries, along with the reasons why:
  • Physically robust: Flying debris and high vibration
  • Corrosion precautions: Dusty and corrosive environment
  • Good signal-to-noise ratio: For bearing defect detection
  • Low frequency response 0,2 Hz: For very low rotational speed of rolls

Good - General purpose monitoring:

Better
- Higher sensitivity for low amplitudes:

Best - Elevated temperatures:
