PdM at 5900 feet below ground...

I’m extremely claustrophobic—we’re talking I have to close my eyes when someone gets an MRI on “Grey’s Anatomy,” claustrophobic.   And snow forts? Forget it, I’m terrified.  So to say I take my hat off to miners is an understatement.  Just thinking about mining is making my heart race. 

I’ve been in the Reliability community for a while now and I’m well aware of the enormous value that Predictive Maintenance (PdM) can have and the money it saves while increasing revenues.  But when I step back and think about the applications that PdM has in the mining industry, I realize that it’s not just about cost savings and increased production, but it’s literally about life or death.

Noah Bethel, VP of Product Development at
PdMA Corporation, will be joining us at this year’s Ultrasound World conference and will be focusing on the work his organization has done for a platinum mine in South Africa to enhance their PdM program.  This work has not only saved the company thousands of dollars but more importantly, these efforts have prevented what could be catastrophic motor failures, and in turn, has saved lives.  I’d say that’s a case study worth tuning in for. 

Join us at
Ultrasound World VIII to learn more, can you really afford to miss it?
