According to Torsten Bark, product line manager at SKF Reliability Systems, “The SKF Machine Condition Advisor is a good fit whether a facility is just beginning a predictive maintenance program or wants to supplement their existing condition monitoring program. New users can have increased confidence because their readings are automatically compared to established standards or backed up by experienced analysts using SKF data analyzers for further analysis.”

The SKF MCA automatically compares the velocity measurements to pre-programmed International Organization of Standardization (ISO) guidelines and uses industry-proven Enveloped Acceleration technique to measure vibration against established bearing vibration guidelines.

These features provide time savings and diagnostic confidence, and can improve machine reliability. SKF,www.skf.com/mca
