Machine monitoring now made simpler, easier & more convenient.
Irrespective of the industry, maintenance services are prone to unpredictable situations. It can be said that a maintenance activity without unforeseen situations is, by definition, an expensive maintenance.

Designed to help simplify machine maintenance and prevent costly failures, the handheld It gives the benefits of machine monitoring within reach for any maintenance and operations teams. Now both beginners and experts can easily and accurately check the condition of rotating equipment throughout the facility. SKF Machine Condition accurately assesses the condition of rotating equipment and measures vibration signals and temperature to indicate machine health or bearing damage.

SKF Machine Condition is used in medium-sized and electrical machines (160-315 mm shaft heights), large-sized and electrical machines (315mm + shaft heights), and multi-vane impeller pumps, integrated drivers, and many more.

SKF Machine Condition is easy to set up and use. In fact, measurements are shown on a bright display viewable in low light to direct sunlight. It is lightweight, compact and fits neatly on any belt line, in a pocket or a tool kit. The tool kit measures velocity, enveloped acceleration, and temperature at the same time. It is rechargeable, and operates for 10 hours on a single charge.

It comes with an optional external sensor, which can be used for hard-to-reach locations apart from being flexible enough to work with standard 100 mV/g constant current accelerometers. Multiple measurements are possible from one device. It provides an overall velocity vibration reading that measures vibration signals from the machine and automatically compares them to pre-programmed ISO standards. It is useful for maintenance and operations workforce with ergonomic and easy-to-use instrument that can provide early warning of potential machine problems before a costly machine failure.

It is an extremely durable IP 54 rated tool used in industrial environments. It measures temperature using an infrared sensor to indicate uncharacteristic heat, and it applies SKF technique called ´Enveloped Acceleration´and compares it to established bearing vibration guidelines to indicate conformity or potential bearing damage.

Benefits

  • Avoids costly failures and helps plan maintenance
  • Reduces maintenance costs and improves machine reliability, alert and danger prompts provide increased diagnostic confidence
  • Ideal for both expert and novice users
