Ultrasound Assisted Lubrication – Time Based to Condition Based
Airborne and Structure-borne ultrasound have evolved into a technology that many would consider to be the cornerstone of an effective maintenance and reliability program. From compressed air and gas leak detection, electrical inspection, and various mechanical inspections, ultrasound is truly a versatile tool for anyone’s PdM "toolbox." One application in particular utilizes the technology for condition based lubrication and to reduce lubrication related failures in rotating equipment.
Objective specifications are frequently used to describe the performance of thermal imaging systems. In part two of this Tip, we explore the significance of our second frequently misunderstood term, Accuracy.
