Poor bearing lubrication identified and immediately remedied
On a recent survey of a critical 110KW blower motor we noticed the PeakVue levels had increased. While at the machine we quickly ran the PeakVue plus and this highlighted the issue as a poor lubrication condition.
Instead of writing this in the report then living in hope the motor is correctly greased, we showed this at the machine to the site fitter and we were immediately permitted to lubricate the bearings and the levels reduced.
PeakVue Plus was great as we did not have to upload to the laptop to explain. We just showed them the colour chart indicating poor lubrication and they acted upon it there and then.
The vibration data was then uploaded to the MHM software for analysis
