I am involved in the online condition monitoring of equipment in my job role. I need to estimate the right amount of sensors that are needed to be installed on multistage gearboxes of rotary Kiln, Raw Mill, and separator. It would be great if some experienced guy can point out where are the measurement points located on the gearboxes or what is the standard location for measuring the vibration of the gearbox. I am hoping to use a tri-axial vibration sensor which will cover (2 radial and 1 axial direction).
Thank you. A quick response will be highly appreciated.
