SKF has introduced an instrument for shock-pulse measurement of roller-bearings. The technique is based on spalling or flaking damage in roller-bearings producing mechanical shocks. Short-duration high-frequency oscillations produced by the shocks are transmitted to the bearing housing and by fitting measuring nipples to the housing at selected points, the shocks can be registered by an accelerometer. The magnitude of these is a measure of the degree of damage.
