SDT LUBExpert – Acoustic Lubrication Instrument
Poor greasing practices are a leading cause of bearing failure. Less than 40% of bearings will last long enough to deliver their engineered value and over or under lubrication is most often to blame.
Many lube departments re-grease on a wasteful calendar-based schedule. This leads to over and under greased bearings that fail to deliver their engineered value.
Grease reduces friction in bearings. Less friction means longer life. LUBExpert alerts you when friction levels increase, guides you during re-lubrication, and prevents over and under lubrication.
LUBExpert is an ultrasound solution that helps you Grease Bearings Right. Use the right lubricant at the right location using the right intervals and the right quantities while receiving the right indication of a task well done including bearing status.
The LUBExpert is a complete ultrasound solution to manage your acoustic lubrication program and ensure you GREASE BEARINGS RIGHT

LUBExpert’s Onboard Ultrasound Assistant Ensures You Grease Bearings Right
The RIGHT Lubricant
Different applications require different lubricants. Which one is the right one? LUBExpert’s onboard assistant helps you select the correct grease and reminds you of the bearing’s maximum capacity.
The RIGHT Location
With potentially thousands of assets to manage, how can you be sure you’re greasing the right bearings? LUBExpert’s onboard assistant guides you through your plant using UAS’s tree structured navigation.
The RIGHT Interval
Whether you lubricate on a calendar-based or condition-based schedule, LUBExpert and Ultranalysis Suite alert you when bearings are due for relubrication. Alarms triggered by SDT’s evolutionary FOUR CONDITION INDICATORS make sure the “squeaky wheel” gets the grease on time.
The RIGHT Quantity
Over and under lubrication are to blame for most lubrication related failures. LUBExpert’s onboard assistant continuously calculates friction levels between half shots of grease advising you to add more – or stop when optimal friction levels are reached.
The RIGHT Indicators
LUBExpert delivers confidence to the task of re-greasing bearings. The onboard assistant guides you smoothly through the task and concludes with a GOOD, BAD or SUSPECT result. Activities are tied back into UAS Suite data management software where logical reports illustrate before and after, quantity of grease added per point and total grease consumed by department or plant.
