Acoustic Emissions

Acoustic emission non-destructive testing is vital for bearing condition monitoring. Bearings are used for many projects in a wide array of rotating machinery such as pumps, engines, motors. Damaged bearings cause inefficiency resulting in undue downtime. If left unchecked, it could eventually lead to catastrophic machinery failure. By addressing correct absorbing bearing lubrication early and choosing Portamonitor bearing test equipment, you can save time and cost, whilst improving safety.


Portamonitor® Bearing Indicator

This is your ideal, quick to use, pocket-size tool for checking the lubrication and bearing wear and tear for rotating machinery, especially on pumps, motors and gearboxes.

You can easily test bearing wear and tear in rotating machinery with Acoustic Portamonitor® condition monitoring tool.

Benefits of Portamonitor® vs other bearing checkers:

     Easy to use
     Instant results (as well as standard condition monitoring readout)

Results show Condition Monitoring Trend + Instant 

  1. Decibel Level – this shows the trend by showing the condition of the bearings, giving you the ability to track degradation over time).

  2. Distress® Level – unlike other condition monitors, Portamonitor gives you an immediate result. This shows the current bearing state identifying: ‘OK’ ‘SUSPECT’ ‘POOR’ (numerical equivalent i.e. 5-10 = ‘OK’) so you can instantly assess if further investigations are needed.

Portamonitor® is incredibly easy to use:

  1. Turn unit on.

  2. Apply gel to the sensor and surface you are testing.

  3. Press search button and place on bearing for 10 seconds.

  4. Results will show.
