Ultrasound Lubrication Tool


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 acoustic lubrication tool combines SDT’s strong measurement capabilities and clever user interface to create onboard 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. See brochure for more information.

ULTRANALYSIS® SUITE 3 (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 is now available with Dynamic Analysis capabilities. The LUBExpert Dynamic delivers advanced analysis of the bearing condition. During the grease replenishment, dynamic data is captured in the background and displayed in the UAS3 software. The Dynamic option helps reduce the data collection time while increasing the efficiency and communication between the condition monitoring and lube teams. See brochure for more information.

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
