Mythbusters: Grease Caddy edition...

The Myth: The Ultraprobe 201 Grease Caddy can be used as an Ultraprobe to test and trend bearings?

The Truth:


The Ultraprobe 201 Grease Caddy has become an important tool for many lubrication programs. It is very useful in preventing over lubrication conditions and is relatively easy to use. Essentially the Grease Caddy can be considered an accessory to a digital Ultraprobe. The Grease Caddy is not a trending tool, nor is a testing tool. It is used only after bearings have been identified as needing lubrication.


The digital Ultraprobes are used in routes to log data and identify those bearings with elevated levels of 8 dB or more over baseline. Once a low alarm report is generated in Ultratrend DMS and printed out as a “lubrication” route, the Grease Caddy is brought along on the route and is used as the grease is being applied. It’s that simple.  Procedures should be established to assist the Lube Tech in performing the lubrication process effectively. This means establishing a defined low alarm dB level. Usually this is 8 dB over baseline. However, this is a recommended practice and it may not universally apply to all plants. Therefore, after experimentation, a different warning level may be established. No matter, once the alarm level has been established, the lube technician should be instructed to stop adding lubricant when the dB level drops.  Remember, the new grease is going to be colder and therefore a bit less elastic than the grease in the bearing. Therefore, lube techs should add a little at a time to allow the grease to work its way into the bearing race area. The placement of the Grease Caddy transducer is as close to the bearing as possible, preferably on the bearing housing, as the grease is being applied.


We've produced a Lubrication Guide to assist and that can be downloaded by clicking here.
