Meet the new generation in bearing monitoring technology

Forty years ago, SPM Instrument were pioneers in shock pulse measurement. Since then, the True SPM® method has found users in industries throughout the world, being commonly recognized as the best method for measuring bearing condition.

Monitoring rolling element bearings

The original Shock Pulse Method was developed specifically for condition monitoring of rolling element bearings. The method is characterized by its ease of use, presenting easily understood and reliable information on the mechanical state of the bearing and its lubrication condition. Requiring few input data, the method measures signals from rolling element bearings and instantly evaluates the condition in intuitive green - yellow - red condition codes. Without the need for expert skills, trouble spots are quickly and easily identified.

The SPM®HD measuring technique is a patent pending evolvement of the SPM method and represents a breakthrough in condition monitoring of low rpm machinery. SPM HD is unique in its unprecedented ability to measure in the 1 - 20.000 RPM range.

Condition monitoring redefined

Measuring results are presented in never before seen detail, giving a crystal clear picture of bearing condition. Razor sharp spectrums and time signals bring root cause analysis to a new level of understanding. Based on readings and expanded knowledge, bearing lubrication is readily optimized and bearing life can be significantly prolonged.

Where established methods fail, SPM HD detects deteriorating bearing condition and incipient failures with impressive accuracy and long prewarning times. The SPM HD method is also very effective for detecting gear mesh signals, caused for example by damaged teeth.

SPM HD paves the way for improved reliability in mechanical equipment and is the perfect companion to vibration analysis.
