Mistake #3 – Using a “Listen-Only” Ultrasound Instrument (Series 3 of 3)

September 20, 2016

Like any job there is a right way and a wrong way to do things. Simply listening to a bearing with an ultrasound device that gives no quantitative feedback is a recipe for disaster. The audible feedback is too subjective to draw any comparative conclusions. No two people hear the same and there is no […]

Monitoring the condition of slow speed bearings

August 16, 2016

Bearings are widely used in industrial applications and considered as crucial component. Bearing failures, when not detected in time, are responsible for unscheduled shutdown and expensive downtime. They may even lead to catastrophic breakdowns. Slow speed bearing monitoring is a different story. When speaking about rotation speeds of less than 250 rpm the “normal” technologies, […]

Measure vibration overall levels

October 6, 2010

The ROTALIGN ULTRA VIBRATION ACCEPTANCE CHECK works in combination with the VIBTOOL vibration meter to measure vibration level according to ISO 10816-3 international standard. The RMS velocity value is wirelessly transferred and stored back onto ROTALIGN ULTRA computer where the result is instantly evaluated against the machine classification threshold. This fulfills the recommendation of the […]
