Remote condition monitoring of bearings and precision lubrication executed anywhere, anytime, and from any device, is already a reality. Pairing the Internet of Things with Ultrasonic sensors has brought the development of innovative maintenance solutions that will take condition monitoring of assets to a whole new level, allowing maintenance teams to stop most bearing failures at its tracks.

It is very common for failure modes to be identified which are nothing to do with bearings and rotating machines. Within the world of bearings, it is generally regarded that lubrication failure is the largest single initiator of failure. We also know that there are defects which do not follow the classic, much-quoted, P-F curve – defects for which trending has little use.
If we know all of these things, what are we doing about them?
This presentation reviews how useful Ultrasound can be to help you implement a broad-ranging improvement strategy.

While Industry 4.0 has brought real-time monitoring of assets to the forefront, what are we learning? In this webinar we’ll explore several case studies of continuously monitored assets. We’ll also look at case studies from vibration and ultrasound that show conditions that were undetected with route-based monitoring.

There are several different technologies that can be used, alone or in combination, to monitor the condition of your machinery from a predictive maintenance (PdM) perspective. The criticality of the machine affects the number of such inspection-type technologies that are applied to a given failure mode. The more critical the machine and the more critical the failure mode, the more redundancy you will want in the inspections.

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.

Before taking full advantage of ultrasonic technology, many of us go to great lengths to identify a failing condition in our anti-friction bearings. We look for either the smallest change in movement or a slight increase in surface temperature to tell us that something is not working properly. Could there be a more obvious measurement that will tell us that not only is something wrong, but more importantly, that will also help prevent the failure from occurring in the first place? Yes, and using ultrasonic equipment and analysis, it is so obvious! It is in the bearing’s name - Friction!

In this interview we will be talking all about Ultrasound. Syed breaks down why ultrasound used in a CBM Program, how is it for energy and fuel savings and how electrical losses can be prevented though ultrasound.

More than 300 million electric motors are used in infrastructure, large buildings, and industry globally. These motors account for about 2/3rds of the industrial power consumption. Electricity is required in almost all areas of the plant to provide the driving force that either operates the equipment that produces the products or provides the services that the plant’s equipment was built to perform..

Join us for an informative & personal introductory session where Blair Fraser will present, "Ultrasound and the IIoT: Guide to using Ultrasound for Remote Monitoring." When a powerful and versatile technology such as Ultrasound meets the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT), new solutions arise that will take condition monitoring of assets to a whole new level. The development of ultrasonic sensors and their integration with IIoT systems promise to be a game-changer when it comes to continuous and remote monitoring of industrial assets.
