10 Sep Queensland Coal case study
In 2018, one of the top 10 producing coal mines in Queensland producing over 8Mtpa had its existing rollers 100% converted to CPS Rollers to address the undesirable expenses due to failed rollers.
The performance and failure rates of the installed CPS roller
s were monitored for 12 months and compared to previous rates, demonstrating a failure rate improvement from 16.10% to 0.41%
. This equates to a reduction of roller failures from 739 down to just 19
The site experienced an uplift in production of 900,000 tonnes
across the observed period- at an average price of $101 per tonnes
– which translates to a production uplift during this period of $90.9M
Of this uplift, 750,000 tonnes
were directly attributable to improved availability.
