Temperature sensors installed to accurately monitor bearing temperatures. They provide a proven means to assess bearing health and to minimize unplanned downtime due to a bearing failure.
Embedded sensors are installed with the entire sensor body inside the bearing housing. Leadwires exit a small housing opening for routing to a display or controller unit. Embedded temperature sensors are compact, easy to install and leave less bulky hardware on the bearing housing exterior.
BLUE PETER Series® embedded bearing sensors are offered in a variety of types and sizes. The primary purpose of these sensors is to continually monitor the temperature of bearing metal. Elevated temperatures could indicate a breakdown in the protective layer of oil, giving one time to execute a controlled or planned shutdown.
The end result is a system, which aids in avoiding both high repair/replacement costs and poor operating efficiencies.
