Grease Caddy helps prevent over lubrication conditions.

Press Release Summary:

Ultraprobe 201 Grease Caddy can be mounted directly on grease gun or put in holster and worn on belt. Magnetic mount enables placement of probe on bearing housings, and sensing element detects ultrasound while filtering out low-frequency signals. Monitoring changes in ultrasound levels as bearings are lubricated enables users to know when enough lubricant has been added. Product also has mini-spot light that helps users see their lube connections in low-light conditions.

Original Press Release:

Magnetic Mount Probe and Holster Added to the Award Winning Ultrasonic Grease Caddy Enhances Lubrication Process, Adds Mounting Flexibility

A Magnetic Mount Probe and a holster have been added to the Ultraprobe 201 Grease Caddy providing additional flexibility to the lubrication monitoring process. Inspectors now have the option of mounting the Grease Caddy directly on a grease gun or putting it in a holster and wearing it on their belt while noting changes in ultrasound levels as they lubricate bearings. A Magnetic Mount with a strong pull enables users to place the probe on practically any type of bearing housing.

The probe's sensing element detects ultrasound and filters out low frequency signals allowing users to hear bearing sounds while applying lubricant. While listening through headphones and observing a meter inspectors will know when enough lubricant has been added, preventing over lubrication, one of the most common causes of bearing failure.

An advantage of ultrasound detection is that ultrasound is a short wave "localized" signal. This feature allows users to identify bearing lubrication condition with little to no interference from surrounding noises.

Four unique features enhance the inspection process:

1. The magnetically mounted transducer provides ease of sensor placement

2. The Grease Caddy may be worn in a holster or attached to any standard grease gun.

3. If attached to a grease gun, a universal mount swivels to accommodate left handed and right-handed users and can also be adjusted for odd angle lubrication approaches

4. A mini-spot light helps users see their lube connections in low light situations.

Used as part of a condition-based lubrication program in which inspectors identify bearings in need of lubrication while leaving those that have enough lubricant alone, the Grease Caddy will prevent over lubrication conditions.

UE Systems produces a line of ultrasound inspection instruments for leak detection, electrical inspection and mechanical inspection.
