Condition monitoring kit introduced

SKF has introduced its new SKF Marine Condition Monitoring Kit, which can be used to carry out simplified condition monitoring onboard ship.

The Kit contains a handheld monitoring device, the SKF Microlog Advisor Pro, as well as SKF marine library models and work instructions for setting up and operating the system.

An ARM (Analysis and Reporting) software package for reporting and trending is also available as an optional extra.

The marine-specific software includes typical equipment models which are loaded into the handheld device, and is preconfigured to convert the measured data into colour-coded results.

Additional analysis of the data can then be performed, based on FFT (Fast Fourier Transform) frequency band analysis, to detect the most likely root cause of the fault, such as unbalanced equipment, bearing failures, gear failures, electrical failure in motors, or hydraulic and aerodynamic problems.

“The SKF Marine Condition Monitoring Kit is easy to set up, use and understand and can give early indication of possible problems,” said Anders Welin, business engineer, SKF marine segment.

“It simplifies maintenance and reduces maintenance costs.”
