Reduce plant downtime and improve machine availability

Paul Boughton
At this year’s MAINTEC 2009 exhibition at the NEC, Schaeffler (UK) Ltd will showcase a number of new products and services for the inspection and maintenance of plant and machinery, including torque measurement products and oil analysis services.

Products include its new ATEX-certified FAG ProCheck system. Developed to help companies monitor vibration levels on critical rotating plant or machinery, including electric motors, drives, bearing arrangements, gearboxes, pumps, generators, ventilators, fans and excavators, FAG ProCheck is an online monitoring system that enables maintenance teams to monitor vibration levels and diagnose faults on critical rotating plant and machinery, preventing costly machine breakdowns and eliminating problems before they occur that interrupt production.
The ATEX-certified version can be used in hazardous gas or dust environments and has a range of communications interfaces so that it can be easily integrated with a company’s existing plant management or production control and maintenance systems.
The FAG Detector series of handheld vibration monitoring and balancing devices will also be demonstrated on the stand. The latest version of FAG Detector III, version 3.4, has been updated with a host of new software features, making condition monitoring easier and more accessible to engineers of all skill levels.
