As the most common cause of bearing failure, lubrication is serious business. For many years, this “serious business” has been conducted in a way that makes perfect sense on the surface but in fact borders on being haphazard. Relying on time-based, periodic lubrication assumes bearings need to be greased at defined time periods will lead to the risk of under and over lubrication. By using ultrasound technology along with normal practices, you can combine standard time-based maintenance with condition-based predictive maintenance, gaining in the process both a clearer picture of what’s really going on in your machines to improved availability and reliability.

Learning Takeaways:

1- To accomplish the goal of equipment optimization, it is best to know when to lubricate and when to stop applying lubricants to a bearing.

2- When we can Stop monitoring our bearings and start managing them?

3- Adding Ultrasound technology will help you a lot to get out the most of your resources and decrease downtime and increase bearing’s reliability and availability.
