Equipment Condition Audits

From SAG mills to gearboxes, overland conveyors to diesel motors we provide equipment condition reports and provide repair scopes of work.

Our well-proven approach follows these key steps:

Inspect
Inspect the physical condition of the equipment, particularly all the mechanical and electrical items associated with its operation.
Report
Provide a full engineering condition report, complete with photographs of all mechanical and electrical items associated with the equipment.
Identify any items that require repair and/or refurbishment
Scope of Work
AME prepare a Scope of Work for repair and/or refurbishment of plant and equipment. We then prepare a cost estimate and timeframe for the repair or refurbishment using reputable organisations able to meet the required work quality and schedule.

Our recommendations target suitable methods of cost reduction encompassing repairing, operating, installation, supply chain, parts management and maintenance practices.

Failure Analysis

Many clients require us to be formal third-party investigators of major equipment failures.

Inspect
We conduct a full engineering analysis and review of the failure causes. When necessary we use experts for specialist requirements, such as metal fatigue analysis and high-stress situation design calculations for classified plant.
Report
You receive a thorough report of the identified failure causes, along with recommendations to address the problems and improve equipment reliability.

Safety Audits

We have comprehensive equipment safety auditing tools and documentation systems that help you to identify opportunities to improve site safety performance.

Hazard Identification
We identify hazards and their consequences and develop risk mitigation strategies suited to the situation.

Accident Investigations

Fires, impact damage and catastrophic incidents need to be investigated without malice, detached from the influences that led to them. AME has extensive experience investigating accidents for insurance claims and legal requirements.

We consider issues such as:

  • Whether the property is economically repairable or needs to be replaced.
  • If repairable, we work with the repairer to determine the cost to reinstate the equipment to a condition equal or better than it was before the incident.
  • If not repairable, we determine the cost of replacement, including a salvage value for the damaged or wrecked item.
  • For insurance purposes, we can determine the market value of the equipment just before the accident damage.
