's 2024 events and workshops schedule is here!

Your journey starts at the Virtual Reliability Leadership Development Summit

An important aspect of Preventive Maintenance is condition monitoring. You should be inspecting bearing hold down bolts and cap bolts (if applicable) for looseness and corrosion.

Why is inspecting the roller bearing bolts important?
• Loose mounting bolts will cause vibration and will gradually cause misalignment and bearing damage.

How to inspect
• Use strobe light to check external lock rings and setscrews for signs of loosening. Look for signs of shaft moving inside bearing.
• Safety First - Beware of moving shaft!

Do your operators or new Condition Monitoring Technicians need to know the fundamentals of care and inspections? Join IDCON for Essential Care and Inspection Techniques September 16-17.
