GearWatch Condition Monitoring from David Brown Santasalo

davidbrownsantasalo-(1).pngIn 2018, David Brown Santasalo launched GearWatch, the next generation of gear unit condition monitoring systems.

This is condition monitoring with a difference. Unlike main stream solutions in the market, oil particle counting is the main condition monitoring method, which brings a completely fresh approach to prolonging the life of gear units.

This advanced solution is remotely monitored by a team of DBS experts. Through oil particle counting and vibration monitoring of the bearings and gears, it can detect defects at an early stage to improve maintenance actions, gear unit performance and lifecycle. Through this approach, GearWatch finds the issues before the gear unit is damaged, prolonging its life-span and minimising downtime. It also allows the customer to create a planned maintenance schedule, creating a cost-efficient system.

“With decades of experience in industrial gear condition monitoring methods, we identified the oil particle counter as a very compact and cost-efficient solution to detect the gear unit’s wear process in the early stages.” Mika Hirvonen, Manager, Field Service & Condition Monitoring.

Find out more about David Brown Santasalo’s exciting developments in gear unit condition monitoring, along with details of their extensive product range at the upcoming exhibition MiningWorld Russia. Their expert team will be located in Hall 1, Stand A357 on 23.-25.4.2019 at the Crocus Expo, Moscow.
