Predictive Maintenance for Cyclone Feed Pumps
Cyclone feed pumps are critical components in a processing plant and downtime can cost over $50k per hour. There is an opportunity to significantly reduce downtime by analysing and correlating 12 months’ of existing data and developing a system that can detect and predict maintenance requirement of cyclone feed pumps. Newcrest’s ultimate goal is a system that is: “capable of predicting future performance of pumps, trained on past data.”
Challenge: What does predictive maintenance look like? Real time failure alerts? Predictive parts ordering? ...
