Ultrasound Acoustic Lubrication Solution


SDT LUBExpert Ultrasound Instrument for Bearing Lubrication

Ultrasound Testing (Ut) and Machinery Lubrication (Lu) are key elements in a successful Asset Condition Management program. At a relatively insignificant capital entry cost, the benefits to reliability and operating cost savings produced by ultrasound-assisted lubrication can be truly enormous.

LUBExpert combines SDT’s strong measurement capabilities and clever user interface to create on-board acoustic lubrication and greasing assistant. Intelligent algorithms guide lube-techs before, during, and after re-greasing resulting in optimal lubrication parameters on all assets.

With only a few machine parameters, LUBExpert monitors each stroke of grease and its effect on bearing friction and temperature. Before and after bearing conditions are reported with a “GOOD”, “BAD”, or “SUSPECT” status report.

ULTRANALYSIS® SUITE software powers the data management aspects of LUBExpert. Design specific lubrication routes and set intervals based on either calendar or condition. UAS knows the capacity of each bearing so under-lubrication and over-lubrication are a thing of the past. Trend friction levels before and after lubrication and generate grease consumption reports for each asset or your entire plant.

LUBExpert bearing lubrication tool makes sure you GREASE BEARINGS RIGHT!

  • It reminds the lube tech to use the RIGHT LUBRICANT
  • It guides the lube tech to the RIGHT LOCATION
  • It tells the lube tech to lubricate on the RIGHT INTERVAL
  • It prevents bearing damage due to over lubrication or under lubrication with the RIGHT QUANTITY
  • It gives the lube tech the RIGHT INDICATORS for bearing lubrication and bearing condition
