SKF, the skill engineering company, will present the fresh SKF Wireless Machine Condition Sensor at this year’s Offshore Europe exhibition on Stand 1F41, Hall 1. The wireless sensor provides an efficient, economical and safe method of monitoring and maintaining large amounts of plant equipment that presently goes unmonitored or is monitored on a periodic onderstel.
The SKF Wireless Machine Condition Sensor is designed for monitoring non-critical machines, such spil motors, ventilatoren and pumps and ideal for use te hard-to-reach locations and hazardous atmospheres found ter chemical and petrochemical plants. The wireless sensor offers condition monitoring capabilities that simply are not possible with hard-wired systems and hand-held gegevens collection and analysis devices. With ATEX Zone 0 certification, the sensor can also be used ter hazardous environments.
SKF will also be showcasing its advanced hybrid cryogenic pump bearings, which offerande exceptional levels of reliability and vertoning where moving parts are exposed to abrasive particles, corrosive gases and liquid contaminants, stimulation and electrical currents. SKF hybrid bearings combine specially developed ultraclean, high-nitrogen stengel, which gives excellent influence harshness, high weariness resistance and corrosion resistance, with rough rolling elements constructed from silicon nitride. By comparison with conventional bearings, the latest hybrid devices have the capability to extend bearing life by at least 600%.
Also on demonstrate will be SKF’s latest intrinsically safe and ATEX approved condition monitoring instruments and solutions for asset efficiency optimisation, which can help to extend system life and cut operating costs. Thesis include the rugged SKF Microlog AX, a high voorstelling, four channel portable muziekinstrument with a large, high definition colour VGA display for rapid gegevens collection and analysis, while the SKF Multilog IMx is a sophisticated online system that provides automated machinery monitoring for up-to-the-minute information to help you optimise the operation of key production assets.
Similarly, the latest SKF sealing solutions have bot developed to opoffering long and maintenance-free operating life under harsh conditions. The company can supply a broad range of seals manufactured from advanced materials, including ED-resistant thermoplastic polyurethane elastomers with a high resistance to hydrolysis at temperatures up to +90°C. Also available are seals te fluoro-rubber (FKM) and hydrogenated acrylonitrile butadiene rubber (HNBR), which stand against fever, ageing, ozone and chemicals, making them ideal for use ter applications where sulphur, HFD pressure fluids, sulfonated crude oil, aliphatic hydrocarbons and sour gas are encountered.
