When does it make sense to replace a seal?The comprehensive article on the topic of “Adaptive Predictive Maintenance” based on state-of-the-art sensor technology with concentrated expertise by Harald Tobies (METAX Kupplungs- und Dichtungstechnik GmbH) and BestSens AG deals with the answer to this question. To be found in the ISGATEC GmbH JAHRBUCH 2024, Dichten. Kleben. […]

Measurement technology really makes the difference!

On his way to the meeting with the cooperation partners from Buss-SMS-Canzler GmbH and METAX Kupplungs- und Dichtungstechnik GmbH, sensor technology was a real game changer for Sebastian Stich. But how?After the tyre pressure sensor alerted him during his journey, he had to interrupt the trip and change the car. The calculated time buffer was […]

Expert forum on explosion protection in Kassel

Wolfgang Diller and Jurij Root Taking at the R. Stahl expert forum in Kassel:The presentations highlighted 💥explosion protection💥 from various perspectives, such as lightning and surge protection, cyber security and functional safety, technical ventilation in potentially explosive atmospheres, as well as ethernet in hazardous areas. Thanks to R. Stahl and the speakers for the insights […]

Application for the DOTbox and vibDots

Just one lool reveals: The DOTbox is soon ready for application. Then the DOTbox and the vibDOTs are ready to take pump monitoring to the next level. Stay tuned for more Information!

Detect damaging events in a mechanical seal at an early stage

Seals, especially mechanical seals in pumps, play a critical role in a wide range of industrial applications, from food processing to chemical processes. Damaging events such as evaporation and particles in the seal gap can not only affect the efficiency of these applications, but also lead to costly failures and repairs. But how can these […]

BestSens insights: Data evaluation and data visualisation

Three quick questions to our data expert Markus » How do we collect data? That depends on what the data is used for. Basically, there are no restrictions for us regarding the data sink. For example, the data can be stored as local logs on an external storage medium or in a database. The latter […]

It’s getting hot in here

We have carried out a temperature stress test on our DOT. The good news: at 28°C room temperature, up to 100°C on the housing of a pump should not be a problem for the electronics. It heated up to about 75°C during our measurements. Why is this test important? The temperature stress test is important […]

Monitoring of wind turbines

Together with Thomas Decker and the Center for Wind Power Drives at RWTH Aachen University, we are currently working on monitoring gearbox plain bearings in wind turbines.In the first investigations, different friction conditions in the plain bearing were successfully measured using our patented ultrasound measurement method. The applied load correlated very well with our acoustic […]
