We are a Bearing Producer. Machinery load temperatures are measured using temperature gauges called RTD (Resistance Temperature Detector) sensors. The sensors themselves consist of a resistor element that changes resistance in response to temperature variations. This element frequently consists of platinum or nickel.
The temperature sensor is affixed to the bearing's surface or installed inside a bearing housing. The RTD's resistance varies together with the bearings temperature. A connected system of sensors or temperature transmitter converts the shift in resistivity into a temperature measurement.
Industrial applications including rotating machinery like pumps, turbines, and motors frequently involve bearing RTD sensors. They are employed to keep an eye on the temperature of bearings, which can be used to spot issues like excessive heat accumulation brought on by contact, lubrication issues, or component wear. Maintenance staff can spot possible problems before they become critical by monitoring the outside temperature of bearings with RTD sensors, minimising downtime and maintenance costs.
