Panametrics' Customer Story

A drilling mine in Sweden had continuous issues with faulty reports. The mine has
about 70 production areas and contains its own water supply to drilling machines.
Because drilling machines in mines can fail and often the water supply is
accused, A team service technicians looked into monitoring the water flow to
identify the problem.


An iron mine in Northern Europe consists of some 70 production areas of which
have their own water supply to the drilling machines.


Customer's Challenge

The utility function at an iron mine that supply the water to the different production
areas have continuous issues with operators. There are many cases of fault reports
on the water supply and after many hours of troubleshooting it was discovered to
be the drill that was broken and not the water supply chain.
