Bearings produce less friction when they are properly lubricated. But how do we know?

  • How can you be confident that friction forces are where they should be?
  • How can you confidently apply just the right amount of grease to return friction levels to normal?
  • How can you distinguish between a bearing that need grease and a bearing that is failing?

Ultrasound Helps

Using an ultrasound measurement tool with digital decibel metering is a proven method for

  • Establishing a historical baseline for friction levels
  • Monitoring changes in friction levels at regular intervals
  • Triggering alarms when friction levels elevate
  • Evaluating data to differentiate failure from friction

Simple Tools

The SDT200 Ultrasound Detector

SDThearmorewbcntThe SDT200SD is an economical ultrasound solution designed for budget minded inspectors; However attention to detail, robustness, and quality have not been sacrificed at the expense of low price. Equipped with RS1 Needle and RS1 Threaded contact sensors, Acoustic Lube Adaptor, and Multi-Surface Magnet, the SDT200SD Lube Tech Kit answers the basic needs of lubricators. An optional Non-Contact Temperature Sensor can be activated for additional control of bearing condition prior to and after lubrication.
