HighService Technology developed the only worldwide sensor capable of measuring wear online within critical equipment. Originally designed to measure wear in coatings within SAG mills, the Smart Wear Sensor (SWS) of HighService is installed in SAG4 mill of Escondida Mining’s Laguna Seca Concentrator Plant, effective and properly operating, continuously informing coatings’ wear levels within the mill.

The last concept of sensor was used to develop the SSD for Feeders, which is also properly operating since mid-2015 in the discharge feeder of SAG4 mill of Escondida Mining’s Laguna Seca Concentrator Plant.

This same system is being implemented in other customers, standing out among them, Centinela in Chile, Las Bambas in Peru and Paracatú in Brazil.
