Schaller is glad to market release a highly sensitive, intelligent monitoring System called BEAROMOS®2020. It has been developed in cooperation with the RWTH Aachen University in Germany. This new Monitoring sensor can detect variations of the friction condition within oil-lubricated Journal Bearings. A beginning bearing damage always comes with the change from liquid to mixed friction of a certain frequency of occurrence. The breaking news here is that BEAROMOS®2020 can detect those effects far earlier than conventional temperature sensors and so can see metal-to-metal contacts e.g. at crank webs within engines even before mechanical damage has occurred. The system’s recording software, is included within the system package,
provides the operator with all necessary information on the Bearing’s status. By installing BEAROMOS®2020 on ships, Schaller contributes to the preventative and predictive maintenance services for engines and any machines that are equipped with journal bearings.
