Benbro Electronics ships UHF radio transmitters and receivers to Chile mines

Supplier News

Benbro Electronics  has shipped the first batch of UHF radio transmitters and receivers for a trial of the Linatex hose-wear monitor in two gold and copper mines in Chile.

The hose-wear monitor, currently being trialled at the Cadia goldmine, near Orange, NSW, uses sensors, embedded in the flexible hose material, to feed information to Benbro radio transmitters which connect with above-ground computer monitors.

This eliminates the expensive manual inspections of flexible slurry pipes to monitor their integrity.

Radio connection and computer interface

Benbro provides both the radio connection and the computer software interface with the above-ground computer. John Bennet, OAM, director of engineering at Benbro has spent the past twelve months assisting Linatex to develop and test this product.
