Monitoring oil flow to critical bearings in heavy machinery
Feb 21 2018 Read 177 Times
Titan Enterprises has supplied an adapted version of its OG5 flowmeter for a leading supplier of mobile rock crushers to monitor oil flow to the rotating cylinder bearing mechanism at the heart of their system. To ensure reliable operation monitoring of lubricating oil flow and pressure to the main drive bearings in crusher units is critical. The specification for the flowmeter included that it could not impede lubricant flow and had to have a low pressure drop even at full flow with cold, thick oil. While Titan Enterprises standard OG5 flowmeter met the flow requirements the standard 1-inch diameter flow pathway was considered too small as it may restrict lubricant flow. After making the required adaptions the resultant flow IP67/NEMA4 compliant monitoring device has proved to be very reliable and to date nearly 500 units have been installed in the clients crushing machines
