Vibration warning indicator paste
2nd Quarter 2019, Shaft power components


A tamper-proof vibration warning indicator paste that can improve safety and reduce inspection time across a number of industries is now available locally from Bearings International (BI). Applications for the DYKEM Cross-Check Torque Seal ranges from haul trucks to head gaskets in vehicles, gearboxes, and even conveyor belts, BI product manager Richard Lundgren explains. “When a piece of equipment vibrates there is always the chance that the torque of any nuts and bolts may loosen. It is essential to be on the lookout for this when servicing equipment or carrying out routine maintenance, in order to prioritise safety and reduce downtime.”

With the DYKEM Cross-Check Torque Seal, the artisan literally draws a line of the paste from the bolt head and along the threads of the screw, once perfect torque has been achieved. At the next inspection, the artisan checks to see if the brightly-coloured mark is still in alignment. If not, action can be taken there and then on that specific bolt, instead of having to retighten all of the bolts, thereby speeding up the process dramatically and reducing the possibility of any loose bolts being missed. With its excellent adhesion to all types of materials, including steel, the indicator paste comes in a range of eight colours for high visibility, and is also fluorescent under UV lighting. “The safety aspect of this product cannot be overstated, especially when you consider the potential danger of a bolt coming off a kilometre long conveyor belt in a factory where people are working,” Lundgren says.
