Vibration sensors built to survive hot, wet, and debris filled environments
Rolling-element bearings are the life blood of many industrial processes including the manufacturing of paper and plastics as well as mining. Often these bearings are located in hot, wet or dangerous areas that are inaccessible to the predictive maintenance professional. Using permanent mount accelerometers will allow the vibration analyst an opportunity to detect critical bearing faults such as pitting or spalling as well as lubrication issues before they cause a critical shutdown.
High temperature ICP® accelerometers allow for affordable protection. These designs offer the best high temp capability of any industrial sensor available on the market without an external charge amplifier. Integrated circuit high temp accelerometers can be routed straight to portable data collectors, saving the company money and providing a simple, clean installation.
