End-Use Case Study

Proximity Probe HousingOffshore oil platforms, power generation stations and petrochemical refineries all share a condition of harsh environment for equipment essential to their business. For Bently Nevada, a leading global manufacturer of transducer and monitoring systems headquartered in Minden, Nevada, the materials selected for equipment used in challenging environments must meet rigorous requirements.

Proximity probes, mounted at each journal bearing location, measure shaft vibration and position and position on rotating machinery. Vital machine condition information is derived from these non-contacting sensors. Bently Nevada Proximity Probe Housings are an ideal way to mount proximity probes, providing convenience in installation and easy access for maintenance, durability against physical abuse by workers and importantly, protection in commonly harsh, outdoor locations.
