Ultrasonic device raises accuracy of re-lubrication of bearings

Ultrasonic device raises accuracy of re-lubrication of bearings

A unique ultrasonic device, which ‘listens’ to the sound of grease filling a bearing, makes the re-lubrication process more accurate and effective. By overcoming problems associated with over- or under-lubrication, the Ultrasound Lubrication Checker TLGU 10 from SKF can help to extend bearing lifetime. Re-lubrication is critical in prolonging the life of bearings and must be applied at the right time – and in the right quantity. However, this often relies on a technician’s experience, machine manufacturer’s recommendations or theoretical calculations.

“The TLGU 10 makes re-lubrication a more practical, condition-based process, by delivering the correct amount of lubricant to a bearing at the right time,” says Sylvain Humbert, product development manager for instruments at SKF. “While under-lubrication can cause premature failure, or allow contaminants into the bearing, over-lubrication is wasteful and expensive and can cause grease spills. Both over- and under-lubrication can reduce bearing lifetime.”
