VibePro Bearing Lubrication Testing

Under and over lubrication of bearings are major causes of bearing failure. VibeProLube is a simple app that uses UE Systems sensor technology to baseline and measure changes in the ultrasound signal to determine when a bearing needs lubrication. VibeProLube uses NASA standards for ultrasound measurement – an 8 dB increase signals a need for lubrication. A 12 dB increase indicates early bearing failure.

VibeProLube includes a calculator for determining an acceptable amount of lubrication for the bearing based on its geometry. This value is displayed on-screen when the measurement exceeds the Alert level. Users can also enter and display the type of grease for each bearing.

VibeProLube uses our Hierarchy technology for simple set up of routes and measurements. Bearing geometry is added during measurement set up. Users can accept the initial measurement as a baseline or enter a custom baseline value.
