Bearing temperature thermocouples
Miniature Bearing Sensors are designed to monitor temperature of embedded bearings critical to machine performance in industrial rotating equipment. The most reliable indicator of bearing condition is the temperature of the metal beneath the bearing shoe. Rising temperatures indicates the breakdown of the lubricating oil film. Quick identification of this condition allows machine shutdown and maintenance to occur before catastrophic failure of the bearing itself. Typical applications for bearing sensors include motors, turbines, pumps, gear boxes and other journal bearing pedestals. ATEX II 1G Ex ia IIC T4..T6 versions available.
