Last year I was asked to install 36 accelerometers onto a dust extraction plant. I managed to get 34 out of the 36 installed during the time slots given. Since then I've been monitoring the 34 bearings with all the best intentions of returning to fit accelerometers to bearings 35 and 36.

Would anyone care to guess which bearing has recently failed?

Hopefully not much downtime.

Not too bad, Thanks.

Ok, another question. How many of the 36 bearings have accelerometers fitted today?

A few years ago I had to make several trips to one of our plants about 60 miles away.  The first 4 times I grabbed a company truck.  The last time I was running late so took my own vehicle.  Anyone care to guess on which trip I picked up a rock off of a truck and smashed the windshield?

Probably 35 have them.  One is brand new and doesn't need monitoring.

No. I made a point of getting the final two fitted during the repair. Those bearings are only accessible during a line stop, so I took the opportunity.
