Key benefits of Smart-Idler®

Vayeron®’s Smart-Idler® gives you unprecedented information on the condition of your rollers, providing you the power you need to keep your conveyors running. Revolutionise your mining operations today by maximising your productivity.

Reduce Downtime

Smart-Idler® accurately monitors the health of your rollers, predicting their failure, and providing advanced warning so that you can take pre-emptive action to replace failing rollers during scheduled maintenance windows. This eliminates the need to perform wasteful early block roller change-outs, and cuts down excessive roller inventory stockpiles.

Reduce Damage

Smart-Idler® provides autonomous real-time monitoring of your conveyor rollers, alerting you instantly when a roller fails. Immediate response reduces the risk of fires, belt tears, excessive noise and tracking problems, allowing you to take prompt action to avoid excessive conveyor damage and costly repairs and downtime.

Improve Safety

Smart-Idler® allows your personnel to view the status of your conveyor rollers remotely from the comfort and safety of a control room. It reduces exposure to mechanical hazards associated with manual inspection methods, and instantly alerts you to unsafe temperature rises in the roller bearings, reducing the potential for fires on your conveyor.
