The SKF Idler Sound Monitor Kit

Detect conveyor idler faults early

SKF Idler Sound Monitor Kit
Conveyor idlers are a common cause of belt damage and production downtime. Left unchecked, faulty idlers can cause belt fires and other safety risks. Early detection is key to optimizing maintenance and productivity. Featuring an easy to use handheld monitoring device, the SKF Idler Sound Monitor Kit can detect faults earlier than any other method.

Safe detection up to 3 m away

SKF Idler Sound Monitor Kit
Using acoustic enveloping technology, the SKF Idler Sound Monitor processes both audible and inaudible sound to detect the unique sound pressures produced by faulty idler rollers. 

The SKF Idler Sound Monitor operates with headphones and just one hand, so users can focus on the placement of their hands and feet. The unit allows continuous detection up to 3 m away at a pace of 2 kph, so users can remain a safe distance from moving conveyors.
