Metso Outotec unveils Metrics monitoring for screening equipment


Updated system allows operators, controllers and service professionals to see real-time analysis of vibrating screen performance and bearing condition

Metso Outotec has announced it is expanding its cloud-based Metrics system to cover tools, sensors and dashboard access for monitoring customers’ stationary screening equipment.

With its 24/7 online monitoring capabilities, Metrics offers improved safety, increased uptime and throughput, and reduced unplanned maintenance. It enables operators, controllers and service professionals to see real-time analysis of vibrating screen performance and bearing condition. Metrics is designed for intuitive operation with an easy-to-read screen dashboard with OEM insights to help operators quickly detect potential issues and take corrective action in time, the company said.

In June this year, Metso Outotec announced a global cooperation agreement with Dynamox, which offers a condition monitoring platform. Metrics for screens is the first solution utilising Dynamox’s easy-to-install instrumentation that can be complemented with services and remote monitoring capabilities.

In February 2021, the firm launched a global training certification programme for services professionals and, in February 2022, it signed a $26mn agreement for a siderite calcination plant in Turkey.

“The customer feedback received has helped us to offer a solution focused on customer centricity and sustainability. 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,” said Jan Wirth, Technology Director, Metso Outotec Screening Solutions.

He added, “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.”

In July 2022, Metso Outotec said it would deliver the world’s largest Premier grinding mills to a Zambian copper mine.
