Fitted with Low-speed Bearings

Bearings are key components of rotating machines. The condition of bearings operated at high speeds can be monitored effectively using a number of techniques such as vibration detection. The condition monitoring of low-speed bearings requires a very different solution.Polysius, a subsidiary of ThyssenKrupp, and a market-leading engineering company ...

Using Ultrasound for Friction, Impacts and Turbulence

A thorough Failure Mode and Effect Analysis, FMEA, might well highlight failure modes related to increased friction, the presence of impacts or the presence of turbulence. These are three key parameters detectable by airborne and structure-borne ultrasound. Whether evaluating equipment reliability or establishing a strategy, ultrasound has an impor...
