In the world of mining and civil industries, haul roads are an important asset for projects. Improperly maintained and optimized roads can put an increasing strain on operational efficiency, and result in a myriad of negative downstream effects including but not limited to unsafe operational conditions, mechanical wear and tear, decreased production and under budget performance and more.
Proof Engineers, an Australian-based global enterprise knows how vital it is to monitor and address both haul road conditions and emissions in a timely and cost-effective manner. As a leader in optimizing mining industry production, Proof Engineers works with and implements innovative haul road monitoring solutions designed to increase operational efficiencies.
Innovative and Cost-Effective Solution
Proof Engineers utilizes a leading edge Road Condition Monitor (RCM) for mine sites and other industrial and civil projects. The RCM acts as a “real time and early warning” maintenance management system, designed to monitor on-site conditions of both mines and civil projects and associated haul roads.
The Best Device for Monitoring Haul Roads
Proof Engineers’ advanced Road Condition Monitoring system provides detailed full-site mapping of the road, clearly detailing road conditions in simple colour scale format. Colour codes such as red, orange, yellow and green provide simple and intuitive visual colour-coding of conditions, ranging from severe to optimal.
Utilization of the RCM provides project managers with the ability to easily, quickly and efficiently prioritize maintenance areas for intervention, thereby optimizing the allocation of resources at any given time so avoiding undue costs and protecting asset values.
The Critical Importance of Road Monitoring
As anyone in the industry knows, haul roads are the lifeblood of the mining industry. Poorly maintained haul roads aren’t just a performance optimization issue, they represent a real and sometimes serious safety concern.
Proof Engineers has the experience needed to help any mining operation improve key performance metrics critical to operations.
Benefits of Using Proof Engineers’ RCM system include:
Data-driven maintenance resource allocation
Optimized cycle times
Enhanced tire life
Reduced mechanical wear and tear
Maintain production budgets
Improved operational costs and fuel economy
Better operational safety
Enhanced wet weather recovery
Effectively lower cost per tonne hauled
System Installation and Operation is Breeze
Compact and fast installation are two of the hallmarks of Proof Engineers’ RCM system. The units can be installed into light vehicles, water carts and haul trucks alike, ensuring full coverage at all times. Each unit is “self-calibrating”, requiring little in the way of site setup and will begin recording data instantly. Proprietary algorithms then do their job by accurately and effortlessly determining the quality of road surfaces and relaying that information to a central online management platform.
Online Platform Packed Full of Features
Safe, secure and accessible from anywhere the client has an internet connection, the online management platform connected to the RCM system provides reliable and convenient accessibility. Further, this system can be customized and tailored to the client’s specific needs.
Customized display parameters
Live or historic data options
Data isolation and filtering
Colour scale modification to site standards and vehicle weights
Adjustable grid size
Vehicle distance and speed information
Score and progress tracking
