BETEX BearingChecker Bearing Conditionmeter

Condition Monitoring Tools

  • Specs

Bearing Checker is unique, being the first portable, pocketsize instrument for evaluated shock pulse measurement. Besides shock pulses, the Bearing Checker measures machine surface temperature with infrared light, and can also be used as an electronic stethoscope for listening to machine sounds.

The instrument can be used on most rotating machinery, such as electric motors, fans and pumps, in a diversety of industrial environments.

Machine breakdowns are frequently caused by bearing damage. Timely failure prediction and detection is key to improving equipment and component reliability and cutting operating costs. Unplanned downtime, as well as unnecessary repair work, can be significantly reduced by periodically checking bearing condition.

Complete system:
  • Infra-red thermometer
  • Electronic stethoscope
  • Manual, quick-start
  • DVD with technical info
  • Batteries
