  • MillMapper is a product which has been developed by Scanalyse Pty Ltd in conjunction with Curtin University in Perth, Western Australia. Scanalyse has been providing this product to minesites in Australia since 2006 and is the only company worldwide who can provide this service. CrusherMapper was released commercially in 2010 and provides a similar wear monitoring solution for gyratory crushers. This product captures the complete internal conditions of the mill including liners and the ball charge. It enables more accurate forecasting for change out dates for liners meaning that liner life can be extended. Achieving a longer life from liners saves cost but importantly also reduces the number of shutdowns required in a year and therefore reduces downtime. Also alerts operators to potential catastrophic failure. MillMapper is being used in Australia, South East Asia and now in Chile, Bolivia, Peru, Venezuela, USA, Canada.
  • The technology used to collect data is a 3D laser scanner shown in the pictures above. If it is mounted on a boom as shown in the pictures in the middle it eliminates the need for confined space entry procedures and results in very fast measurement. It only takes 5 minutes to do a complete scan (which captures 10 million thickness measurements !!). The complete inside surface of the liners is captured rather than just the few points where the man can reach. The picture on the left shows the traditional UTG measurement The picture on the right shows a method of lowering the scanner into the mill through the inspection hatch on top of the mill. This method also eliminates confined space entry procedures.

  • Highlights the 3 deliverables that the client receives. They get much more than a written report.
  • Profiles that are embedded in the 3D file. The shape of all the liners can be seen at 100 mm intervals right throughout the mill. I often break off the Powerpoint and go in to the 3D file at this time. It gets them excited.
  • Liner wear is also plotted against tonnage. Here we see 2 separate liner lives to enabling comparison of wear if required. It is important to take several measurements for each liner life cycle because more points that are on the wear curve give more information. It is particularly important to get regular measurements towards the end of liner life when wear rates can accelerate. At least 5 measurements per liner life cycle are recommended and more are better.
  • A wear curve is reported for every liner segment. In the ball mill case above there are 5 shell liners, a Feed Section Inner and Outer liner and a Discharge Section Inner Liner and Outer. The reline forecasting is done for every liner segment. The failure tonnages and dates are also shown. You can see from the tabs at the top of the slide (Forecasting, Wear, Profiles, Liner Weights, Ball charge) that there is more data that we report on. The following slides describe them briefly.
  • Liner profiles can be drawn by looking at the data in cross sections. The profile above is for the Outer Liner of the Feed End section and is at a location 150 mm radially out from the start of the liner. A series of profiles are drawn showing the change over time. This information is very useful for calculating lifter bar angles and determining grinding ball trajectories accurately. The performance of the mill can be correllated with liner shape as well to provide a better understanding of the optimum profile required for best mill performance.
  • MillMapper forecasting is more accurate and can be used to more closely predict when liner change out is required. It can also be used to assist in liner redesign so that all liners require changing out at the same time. Extending liner life will bring immediate cost savings in purchasing liners. In a SAG mill where the annual cost is $2M a 10% life extension will automatically bring a $200,000 saving. For a mill which has a 95% availability, increasing the liner life by 10% will reduce down time by 10%. Downtime of 5% per year equates to 18 days. 10% of 18 is 1.8 days. If a conservative factor is applied then at least 1 day or 24 hours of downtime will be saved. Again, at $50,000 per hour 24 hours will bring a $1.2M revenue increase.
  • Localized “hot spots” for wear can be easily spotted. You won’t identify these with limited UTG measurements.
  • Wear curves showing that liner life extension can be achieved. Two sites in Australia are named who have achieved extended life.
  • Ball charge information is captured: Improved accuracy Recorded as a percentage of mill volume Recorded as volume in M 3 Ball Feed rates can be more accurately determined In this case the ball charge was increasing because of incorrect ball addition rates. It was corrected and saved $50,000 p.a.
  • Series showing the analysis of the scan for ball size and the results
  • Open area image showing raw scan data. Can clearly see pegged holes.
  • Mention that we don’t need to be down in the dump pocket when we use a frame. It takes less than an hour to capture scans.
  • The two pics show that this concave was relined when it had hardly worn. It had a lot of life left in it. The blue bands haven’t changed colour very much.
