Abstract [en]

Spray jets constitute one of the most important parts of each type of rock cutting machine, especially the drum shearer. This system cools the cutting picks and controls the dust emission. The blockage of spray jets causes the coal shearer machine to stop automatically. Therefore, the reliable performance of this system assists the achievement of a smooth coal cutting operation. Field's data shows that the maintenance of this system is time-consuming and causes major downtimes in the production process. Therefore, it is essential to find an optimum preventive maintenance task and intervals, to reduce the downtime and minimize the associated costs of the machine. The aim of this paper is to identify an applicable and effective maintenance task, with its associated interval, for management of the failure modes of the spray jets of coal shearers. A case study has been conducted on spray jets of double-drum shearer machine in Tabas Coal Mine in Iran. In the study, the RCM approach is used to select an applicable and effective maintenance task. The failure data were analyzed using a parametric approach to evaluate the reliability of the spray jets, and to estimate the reliability parameters. A reliability-based cost modeling has been implemented to identify the optimum maintenance interval and frequencies of restoration for the spray jets. In the study, a cost rate function (CRF) has been introduced in which an as-good-as-new (AGAN) effectiveness for restoration actions is considered. The CRF also considers restoration and repair times, and takes into account the costs associated with repair and restoration, and the opportunity cost of the equipment's lost production due to maintenance downtime, to arrive at the most cost-effective maintenance intervals. The results of the analysis have shown that the minimum cost per unit of time, $46.5/h, will be achieved within a range of intervals i.e., T = 210 h to T = 260 h.
