Case – Route Ultrasoon

The customer asked us to put all machines through an ultrasonic test while driving. In one of the machines an abnormality was detected.

Findings during the trip:

While conducting an ultrasonic test on the engine of a centrifugal pump we noticed an alarming grating/rattling sound. We therefore conducted a comparative vibration measurement.


We noticed advanced damage to the engine bearing.

Replace the engine bearing.

Findings after replacing the bearing:



Conducting ultrasonic measurements is a fast way of detecting a machine with bearing damage.

This case teaches us that ultrasonic measurement are a good primary tool to detect a problem.
