Case Study: Transmission Abuse & Engine Overspeed

Case Study: Transmission Abuse & Engine Overspeed

Operator handling has an enormous impact on the lifespan and health of machinery. Abuse warnings give operators decision making capability to prevent problems such as transmission abuse and engine overspeed.

Transmission abuse occurs when an operator changes gears from neutral to forward/reverse with an engine speed above 1500 rpms. This sudden load change can cause a shock to the system, capable of causing serious damage to the component.

Engine overspeed occurs when an engine is forced beyond its design limit. With some engines, even momentary overspeed can greatly reduce engine life and cause serious damage to the machine.

The purpose of this study was to assess the frequency of transmission abuse warnings and engine overspeed warnings on a small high-grade gold mine that had recently implemented iVolve’s Mine4D Maintenance capability.
