Regal Rexnord AirMax Pro

Perceptiv monitors gearbox status in real time

Regal Rexnord Corporation is launching the AirMax Pro Smart Breather, a connected device that protects industrial gearboxes from moisture and particles.

A leading cause of gearbox failure is lubricant contamination or corrosion inside the box as a result of intrusion of moisture or particles. This leads to machinery failure caused by abrasion, erosion, fatigue, and corrosive wear.

Keeping the inside of the gearbox clean and free of harmful materials is critical to lengthy operation. In addition, monitoring contamination levels inside the gearbox contributes to the efficient and safe operation of plant equipment.

Regal Rexnord’s new AirMax Pro Smart Breather is specifically designed to protect gearboxes and ensure they operate at maximum efficiency in harsh environments. It extends the life of industrial lubricants by preventing contamination with desiccant breathers, removes contaminants with filtration systems, and detects lubricant problems with visual oil analysis.

In addition, the breather detects and records any spikes in humidity and water ingress by integrating with Regal Rexnord’s Perceptiv connected technology, a cloud-based technology to track, report, and share performance data.This connectivity enables users to monitor the status of their equipment through a variety of modules, sensors, and other connected products.

The AirMax Pro Smart Breather is effective when installed in Regal Rexnord’s gearboxes, such as its Falk V-Class and Planetgear drives.
