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 bearing 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 lubrication conditions are reported with a “GOOD”, “BAD”, or “SUSPECT” status report.
ULTRANALYSIS® SUITE (UAS) 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 over-lubrication is 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 makes sure you GREASE BEARINGS RIGHT!
- It reminds you to use the RIGHT LUBRICANT
- It guides you to the RIGHT LOCATION
- It tells you to lubricate on the RIGHT INTERVAL
- It prevents over and under lubrication with the RIGHT QUANTITY
- It gives you the RIGHT INDICATORS for lubrication and bearing condition
