Transducer Basics - Proximity Probes and Other Sensors Webinar


Proactive maintenance via condition monitoring solutions enables pulp and paper product manufacturers to use data-driven insights to enhance operations and mill maintenance strategies. As a proactive approach in asset performance management strategy to optimize production and minimize unplanned downtime, monitoring machine vibration can tell us important information about its health.

Additionally, understanding the characteristics of the vibration can help us detect and diagnose symptoms before they become severe. With the advancement of technology and availability of sensors in the market, it is essential to know how they work, and where to use them.

This presentation will distinguish between Proximity, Acceleration, and Velocity sensors, and go through how they work, their proper application by machine/bearing type, and common installation errors.

After completing this webinar, participants should be able to explain the basic concepts of these sensors and outline their applications and common pitfalls to avoid.
