Bearing Lubrication Monitoring
Lubrication, a double paradox for maintenance
All maintenance departments agree: lubrication and greasing are among the essential tasks of regular equipment upkeep. And yet, and this is the first paradox, it is often the least well executed maintenance operation! The proof is that 40% of bearings "break" prematurely because of inadequate greasing.
In recent years, industry leaders have made significant financial investments in equipment and operator training. All with a single aim: detecting problems before they lead to expensive stoppages. And this is the second paradox: why create more problems with incorrect lubrication?
For greasing to be effective, it must be tailored to the real needs of rotating machinery (right time, right lubricant, right amount). A modern, fully developed ultrasonic detector is the answer.
