Haver & Boecker Niagara look to reduce downtime with data in new Pulse diagnostics suite

April 12, 2023, ST. CATHERINES, ON – Operators in the aggregates and mining sector have a new solution for controlling the costly and unpredictable variable of maintenance, with a full suite of vibrating screen diagnostic services from Ontario-based company Haver & Boecker Niagara.

The Pulse diagnostics suite was designed to monitor vibrating screens, tracking overall health and possible issues to ensure productivity, proficiency, and positive uptime in onsite operations. A combination of advanced vibration analysis, condition monitoring, and impact testing aims to give aggregate professionals the predictive, full-scope view necessary to keep machines maintained and their potential maximized.

A range of options comprise the Pulse diagnostics portfolio, including Pulse Vibration Analysis, Pulse Condition Monitoring, and the Pulse Impact test, with each targeting data on a distinct avenue of the screening process.

Using eight wireless, triaxial sensors, Pulse Vibration Analysis measures speed, stroke, and amplitude of machines, storing this data in an easily-accessible online database. From this data, producers receive a Pulse Diagnostics Report that includes detailed recommendations from Haver & Boecker on optimizing health and avoiding downtime.


Pulse Condition Monitoring offers a permanent wireless system that monitors equipment 24/7 for vibrating screen acceleration, outputting a condition report based on real-time information in intervals of 48 hours, five days, and four weeks, along with e-mail reports in the event of system anomalies.

To ensure that each machine is properly tuned to avoid operating in resonance, the Pulse Impact Test involves the striking of wireless, tri-axial sensors at key areas of the screen with a dead blow hammer while the machine is off. The data collected by this process, which Haver & Boecker recommend conducting twice a year, allows operators and engineers to adjust frequencies as needed to avoid the damage and safety risks of resonance operating.
