A great deal of time and money is spent attempting to detect rolling element bearing failures, and in some cases, taking preemptive action to replace them as a time-based PM task. If we spent as much energy avoiding the failures the business would be far better off, and maintainers would avoid a potentially dangerous corrective-maintenance task.
In this Webinar, we will discuss a number of ways that we can avoid bearing failures. The topics will range from spares management, installation practices, lubrication practices, and operating practices. We will also discuss how we can detect the root causes so we can eliminate them before the bearing is harmed, and how we can learn from failures to avoid them in the future. It won’t be a short Webinar, but it will be informative!
• The majority of bearing failures are avoidable – we just need to be focused on eliminating the root causes
• Precision installation, balancing, shaft and belt alignment (including soft foot elimination), lubrication (including contamination control) and many other factors can reduce failures
• Condition monitoring should also be used to detect these root causes, not just detect failures
