Shaping the Future of Machinery Maintenance with the LUBExpert ON-GUARD

Yet, despite its essential role in ensuring the longevity and optimum performance of machinery, lubrication practices often lack focus, leading to costly downtime and equipment failure. The LUBExpert ON-GUARD is a revolutionary solution that is about to improve automatic bearing lubrication and set new standards in reliability, simplicity and safety.

Understanding the Lubrication Challenge

Inadequate lubrication can wreak havoc on machines, with incorrect replenishment rates and the wrong type of lubricant posing significant risks. Choosing the right lubricant isn’t enough, you also need to ensure that the replenishment rate is correct. Too little grease accelerates wear, while too much leads to overheating and potential bearing failure. Striking a delicate balance is essential to maintaining optimum performance and extending equipment life.

The Role of Ultrasound in Lubrication

Lubricating bearings using ultrasound has long been considered good practice, as it provides valuable information on friction levels and the quantities of grease required. Ultrasound is a reliable indicator of bearing health, enabling maintenance professionals to accurately assess the effectiveness of lubrication efforts. By assessing friction levels, ultrasound helps determine the precise amount of grease required, mitigating the risks associated with both over- and under-lubrication.
