A&SB Ultrasound Smart Cloud-Based CBM Strategy for Bearings

A&SB Ultrasound Smart Cloud-Based CBM Strategy for Bearings

TRC-2018 Learning Zone 44:56
by Carlos Garza, Arca Continental

Future is now and production facilities around the world begin to see the speed of information sharing produced by Condition Based Monitoring as a desirable investment. Airborne/Structure borne ultrasound has been used for decades, in bearing failure detection but now with ISO 29821-1 in our hands and the possibility of making a smart diagnosis and trending in cloud-based platform things change for good for practitioners. Baseline establishments, route compliance, asset diagnosis, speed as a technological advantage, and information sharing through all the organization, are now things to consider when implementing this technology in our maintenance strategy. Smart Data collection and resultant information management will become a must do for every company looking for boosting their availability and reliability indicators. A&SB Ultrasound combined with a cloud-based CBM platform will do the job for you.

 Leak detection in the age of digitalization with SONOCHEK

Leak detection in the age of digitalization with SONOCHEK

Ismaning, October 16, 2018 – Together with the update of the SONOCHEK apps SONOLEVEL and SONOLEAK, PRUFTECHNIK launches the SONOLEVEL DATAVIEWER, a new visualization PC-software for leak analysis. SONOCHEK is an innovative digital leak inspection device used to localize leaks in compressed air, gas and vacuum systems. The device includes automatic leak classification and its broad bandwidth of 20 to 100 kHz allows detecting leaks even at an early stage. SONOCHEK is also used effectively for electrical inspection and monitoring of bearing lubrication.

Part II of II: Ultrasound For Safety… If Not for Anything Else!

Part II of II: Ultrasound For Safety… If Not for Anything Else!

In Part I (Oct/Nov 2017 Uptime), the focus was about the use of ultrasound and SAFETY. Hopefully, it spurred a discussion in your facility as to how this technology, no matter its age or origin, can be a lifesaver. This technology can truthfully claim that it has been around longer than any of you have been alive. Yet, it is still a most valuable technology in many, many ways.

Part II focuses on ultrasound for reliability maintenance and presents real-life situations as to why electrical workers and infrared thermographers should use ultrasound as a complementary technology.

Part I of II: Ultrasound for Safety… If Not for Anything Else!

All through the late 1980s and 1990s, ultrasound was literally the all-purpose tool. Vibration and infrared (IR) were too expensive for most organizations to afford. Yet, you could purchase an infrared thermometer gun for $100 and an ultrasound instrument kit for between $750 and $7,000 and perform a multitude of applications on motor bearings, gear boxes, pumps for cavitation, leak detection (pressure/vacuum), steam traps and acoustic lubrication (introduced in early 1990s). You could hook up an ultrasound instrument to a vibration analyzer and utilize the contact or magnetic sensor on bearings to easily detect an outer race defect, sometimes missed by earlier vibration boxes unable to go above 20,000 Hz. Into the mid-1990s, ultrasound inspectors added electrical switchgear and substation inspection for arcing, tracking and corona discharge. A new era of ultrasound inspection had begun, dealing with SAFETY.
