Condition Monitoring

Recognize Bearing Damage Early and Optimize Bearing Lubrication with Ultrasonic Testing Devices

A regular condition-based monitoring of bearings is essential for a successful preventative maintenance program. The early detection of damages or signs of wear in both friction and non-friction bearings leads to downtime prevention, increased operational reliability, and considerable cost savings.

The SONAPHONE range of devices are used in a large variety of industries. The extensive software and accessories available enable these devices to be used for a multitude of applications. With bearing testing, the ultrasonic testing device SONAPHONE can be used to check lubrication and friction levels, interpret defect induced noises, and in the case of rotary pumps, detect cavitation.

The SONAPHONE allows the user to monitor damage and wear on rotating machinery and other moving components. Ultrasound data, including levels, spectra, and audio can be recorded during individual or series of tests. All data can then be transferred from the device to a computer and presented through the DataViewer and SONAPHONE DataSuite software, for further trending and analysis.
