Accelerometer removal tools help avoid sensor damage and assist with the removal of adhesively mounted “teardrop”-style accelerometers. After using a debonding agent, the removal tool applies a shear force. This shear force is applied by a slow twisting motion to the sensor breaking the bond of most glues and epoxies.
Probe tips install onto accelerometers to enable their use as handheld vibration sensors. This technique is useful if installation space is severely limited or for determining installation locations where vibration is most prevalent.
