Borehole pumps play a critical role in the mining industry in the process of dewatering mines. For the longest time, these pumps have been notoriously difficult to monitor remotely with traditional proximity-based condition monitoring technologies like vibration or acoustic analysis.
Now, with electrical signature analysis these borehole pumps can be fully monitored remotely from safely inside the motor control cabinet. In this fault detection case study we dive into real-life examples of early alarms on clogging, mechanical degradation and electrical issues on borehole pumps in the mining industry.
