For the last 40 to 50 years, the industry standard to monitor bearing wear or machine problems on the most process critical and expensive equipment in each plant has been the proximity probe. It is expensive and was the only viable option. A new revolutionary Insight Force Detection Sensor creates a cost-effective and easy-to-install alternative. It provides the necessary data for condition monitoring and advanced analysis of all types of fluid film bearings. In this presentation, the patented measurement principal is explain, as well as, case studies of real machine problems which were detected and identified using this revolutionary technology in combination with handheld and continuous monitoring solutions. Applications from diesel engines to turbines and high speed compressors are shown. A must attend for all rotating equipment specialist and maintenance managers eager to learn about this new life changing technology.
