Asset Condition Monitoring
Your factory floor is a noisy place where machinery failures are muted by the roar and rumble of production.
SDT lets you hear over the commotion and lock your senses onto the next unanticipated catastrophe before it happens.
Condition-based maintenance represents a change to the way maintenance tasks are scheduled. Instead of performing calendar-driven tasks, maintenance is carried out only when the condition of an asset changes. Ultrasound technology provides you with data about the health of both rotating and non-rotating assets, warning you well in advance that a failure is near.
Ultrasound testing with the SDT270 and SDT200 is a key element of your asset condition management strategy. It helps you plan your maintenance tasks, execute only necessary work orders, and leave the culture of reactive maintenance behind you.

Four Condition Indicators (4CI)
SDT’s ultrasound solutions provide insight beyond the single decibel.
In the world of asset condition management you need dependable data to inform you about the condition of your production machines.
Before 4CI, ultrasound inspectors trended ultrasound data based on a single decibel measurement taken at an arbitrary point in time. Capture the measurement at the wrong time and the defect was either missed, or amplified beyond reality. 4CI allows inspectors to set the acquisition time prior to capturing the measurement. The result is a more representative and accurate collection of data.
By monitoring these four numbers on your ultrasound solution, you’re able to keep a pulse on the health of your facility and move from a reactive maintenance program to a condition-based approach.
