Bearing Fault Detection - Part 1

Rolling element bearings are critical components in the majority of rotating machinery. If they fail there will be downtime, secondary damage, safety concerns, and probably overtime labor costs. In this presentation, Jason Tranter will provide a three-pronged approach to avoiding catastrophic failures through vibration monitoring, and reducing the incidence of new failures.

Learning Points

1. Care: The presentation will begin with an overview of why bearings typically fail and what you can do to avoid the failures. Topics include: correct installation, lubrication, storage, transportation, and operation. You will learn why shaft alignment and balancing and other corrective measures can extend the life of the bearing.

2. Monitor: Next the presentation will provide an introduction to vibration analysis and the nature of the vibration patterns generated by bearings.

3. Forensics: Just like the CSI TV program, we can open the failed bearings and learn why it failed. Armed with this information we can complete the cycle and ensure that we prevent the problem from occurring again
