In addition to data collection the SKF Marine Condition Monitoring Kit has the capability to conduct additional analysis of the machine, based on FFT (Fast Fourier Transform) frequency band analysis. This method will detect the most likely root cause of the fault, such as unbalance, bearing failures, gear failures, electrical failure in motors, hydraulic and aerodynamic problems.
The SKF Marine Condition Monitoring Kit has been developed specifically for the demanding requirements of the marine industry and tough on-board conditions. It is well suited for use on a wide range of vessels, including container ships, ferries, Ro-Ro ships, fishing vessels, dredging vessels, tug boats and offshore supply vessels.
