A new South Island gold mining operation installed a LOADRITE X 2350 excavator  weighing system to measure the material input to their floating processing plant. The X 2350 scales are connected via the new LD354 cellular communication controller to the LOADRITE INsightHQ cloud network and  data reporting solution.

The site manager can now monitor the input to output conversion ratio which provides shift by shift performance and accurate tracking of the gold production a per tonne as they move through the site.

The X 2350 was installed onto a new Volvo EC480L required for the long reach capability, the bucket sensor for the scale system spends a lot of time under water which is no problem for the new CAN based LR970 sensor in it’s armored protective housing. The excavator works continuously all day and is hot seated during breaks so as to maximise material throughput on the processing plant.

Operator training and data reporting is all provided by factory trained LOADRITE technicians.
