Feb. 26, 2017 – SDT has announced its latest innovation in ultrasound technology. Aimed specifically at solving problems related to machinery lubrication, LUBExpert promises to be a unique solution to the most misunderstood maintenance task — bearing re-lubrication.

LUBExpert boasts strong measurement capabilities and clever user interface to create the Onboard Lubrication Assistant. An intelligent, algorithm driven assistant guides you to a “perfect lubrication,” says the company, adding that with only a few machine parameters, LUBExpert monitors each stroke of grease and its effect on bearing friction and temperature. Lubricant levels are reported with “Good,” “Bad,” or “Suspect” status report for each bearing. The unit features Ultranalysis Suite (UAS) integration, which includes: six node trees define asset location; user-defined databases and surveys; alarms and analysis with 4CI; before/after condition report; and grease consumed report.
