Optimize Loadout and Haul Productivity
Customer Profile: Kerr Limited is a premier aggregate producer in Midwestern Ontario, Canada. The family-owned company offers custom aggregate crushing, washing and screening, along with trucking and gravel distribution services.
Business Challenge: Kerr Limited was looking for a more effective way to track material produced and moved by its primary crusher and to optimize its payload and hauling of gravel for the local township. The company turned to Loadrite for more efficient and cost-effective materials handling.
Solution: Loadrite C2880 belt scale and L2180 on loaders
C2880 belt scale captures total material tonnage, average tons per hour processed, and the start time and stop time of the belt for seamless crusher production
InsightHQ reporting and analytics module provides real-time productivity and performance reports about crusher operation – slow downs and material issues are identified and addressed immediately for minimal disruption and costs
Test project in progress using L2180 for gravel loadout operations – will capture load counts and payload measurement and record what product is being loaded and where it will be delivered
Managers predict optimized payload measurements and faster cycle times – will improve tons per hour moved and streamline bidding, potentially saving hundreds of dollars per month per truck, lost hours and material
“We’re generally running around 260 tons an hour from that crusher, and now with the LOADRITE scale and reporting I can immediately see if there’s a drop off in production,” said Kerr. “I can jump on the phone and see what’s going on. If weather is bad and its making the material wet, or if the size of the rocks is bigger than expected, and we have to slow down to get the quality product we want, I can know that sooner. I used to hear about these things a couple of days later, and at that point it’s hard to make any adjustments. Now, I can add other guys or another shift and customers get exactly the material and tonnage they ordered, it’s very seamless.”
