Would inspecting GET and Bucket Wear Surfaces provide value for both maintenance management and condition monitoring purposes?
There are some compelling reasons to monitor buckets and GET
- Production can be affected when the primary loading tool is down to some failure of a bucket, be this missing teeth/adaptors or cracked core.
- Worn cutting edges, teeth will require greater force needing to be applied to achieve the same penetration. This means higher forces causing accelerated pin and bush wear, greater torsional forces in the boom structures leading to cracking, greater fuel usage and slower production.
- Maintenance planners need to know the condition of each aspect of the bucket in order to plan the amount time and dollars required to bring the bucket back to a fully usable condition.
