Desiccant breathers are a necessary and often highly critical service component for operating facilities. Almost all systems that store or circulate lubrication oil, fuel, or hydraulic fluid must prevent the intrusion of water vapor and particulate.
Bearings in contaminated environments quickly fail, disrupting production and incurring high changeout costs. In one easy application, Enviropeel stops contamination and corrosion, producing significant savings with an average 500 percent increase in bearing life. This updated study explains how the system works and includes updated case history data showing amazing year-on-year increases in savings at a US plant.
The internet of things (IoT) is making it easier for reliability engineers to connect equipment and automate asset data collection so they can make better decisions that impact operational availability. This paper reveals how maintenance teams can use IoT technology to hear vibration problems from anywhere with web access just as clearly as if they were on the plant floor. It includes recordings of a failing bearing so you can hear for yourself. NI is an Affiliate member of the Intel® IoT Solutions Alliance.
