A retrofit that saves money
Wireless oil temperature monitoring at bearings optimizes plant availability
Roll neck bearings are used in the rolling stand and are located on the operating side of the upper and lower back-up rolls - known as Morgoil® friction bearings. An oil circuit ensures the bearings get the lubrication they need. An increase in the temperature differential indicates a higher degree of friction within which may result in damage. However, the ambient conditions which prevail at the rolling stand make it difficult to wire up the necessary temperature sensors securely.
Predictive maintenance results in cost saving
This solution ensures that, with little effort in installation and commissioning, any impending damage to the friction bearings is detected by measuring the lubricant temperature. Maintenance intervention is initiated in a predictive manner. This type of friction bearing, including its installation and removal as well as the production downtime, is very costly.
