Wear Point Survey Program

The wear point survey is a program which provides a complete analysis of all the wear points that exist on any mining or quarry site, conducted by Brian Parsons of Foresight Solutions Inc. Brian has 30 years of experience in Mining Maintenance in association with Canadian Wear Technologies. From that analysis a Wear Reduction Plan is developed which:

Increases Productivity By reducing the frequency which a given part of the operation is required to be taken out of service to address a wear issue. Through better designed components the down time required to service a part of the operation when it does occur, is kept to a minimum.

Improves Safety Working with the front line maintenance personnel any steps that are available to reduce or even eliminate any potential safety hazards in the design or installation procedures of the wear components are a key element of the plan as it is developed.

Improves Manpower Availability As the Wear Reduction Plan is implemented the number of maintenance personnel required at particular parts of the operation during scheduled shutdowns and services is reduced as the required frequency and duration of repair is condensed. As a result more manpower can now be utilized for other maintenance requirements such as backlog or outstanding safety issues.

Control of Component Lead Times Once the Wear Reduction Plan has been finalized the required components can be ordered in coordination with each step of the plan in ample time for their delivery to the work site.

Continuity of the Wear Reduction Plan With a written Wear Reduction Plan in place any change to personnel will not require the process to start over. As the plan moves forward, proper documentation control will inform the person coming in who has responsibility for the implementation of the plan where the process started, its present status and future requirements.
