SKF Copperhead fault detection system

Identify problems before breakdowns occur

SKF Copperhead Fault Detection System kit
Unplanned production stops caused by faults in mining and cement machinery always cost more time and money than planned stops for maintenance and repair. With the SKF Copperhead fault detection system for mining machinery, evolving faults can be detected before they cause unplanned stops. Using the latest vibration and temperature measurement techniques, the system monitors machinery while in operation to detect a range of faults.

Developed exclusively for mines and cement mills machinery

SKF Copperhead features a rugged sensor, developed just for the mining and cement industries machinery. Along with allowing operators to avoid failures, the system enables better maintenance and repair planning. This can increase maintenance personnel safety, reduce maintenance and repair costs and improve productivity.

Access operating data worldwide

The pre-engineered, easy-to-install system can be used as a stand-alone device or integrated into a plant automation system. SKF Copperhead communicates critical data that can be analyzed worldwide through a Web-based link, either by SKF or trained staff.

Detects a range of machinery faults:
  • Loose parts
  • Unbalance
  • Bearing and gear damage
  • Lack of lubrication
  • Impacts
  • High temperatures
