Bearing Defect Factor™
Classic monitoring techniques do not allow monitoring a bearing during its whole life cycle with good accuracy. As consequence, assessing a bearing health is quite complex to achieve. ONEPROD has developed a smart indicator name the bearing Defect Factor (DEF) more than 30 years ago, so that the bearing health can be characterized very high accuracy from the first spalls and during its whole life cycle, with a single indicator.
The bearing defect algorithm has been designed based on +2000 rolling elements tested and has proven extremely reliable over the years in all industries for machines:
- equipped with roller/ball bearings,
- operating in a speed range of 600 to 6000 RPM
- and which are not naturally generating shocks (gearbox, thermal engine…)
