One of the factor that have influence on reliable work of bearing and its life is properly conducted mounting process.
A few basic rules should be obeyed, especially:
- Keeping the mounting process absolutely clean, protection of all parts (bearings especially)from contamination and corrosion
- Determining order of mounting activities to eliminate mistake possibility
- Using proper tools and shop devices
- Checking correctness of bearing work in motion.
Before starting the mounting process bearing seats and abutments should be checked, possible damages should be removed from seat surfaces and if it is necessary cleaned with “Anticor” kerosene. In general brand new bearings should not be washed but in case of used bearing they may be cleaned also with “Anticor kerosene. Before bearings mounting the seats and abutments should be slightly lubricated with oil or grease in order to make the assembly process easy and protect surfaces from corrosion.
Bearings are as varied in design as the machines in which they are installed. There are a number of contributors to premature bearing failure. Misalignment and improper lubrication are the two major factors. Misalignment contributes to approximately 1/3 of all bearing failures.
There is a misconception in industry that the use of flexible couplings eliminates the need for precision shaft alignment. Flexible couplings are actually designed to allow machines to operate within in proper shaft alignment tolerances other than “zero”, which is not a practical or possible alignment goal in most industrial applications.
When two machines are misaligned the flexible element of a coupling creates forces at the coupling which are exerted on the shafts and bearings of the machines. These excessive forces contribute to early bearing failure. The goal of precision shaft alignment is to reduce these forces to enable bearings to last their designed L10 life (number of hours a bearing is designed to last).
Condition monitoring (or, colloquially, CM) is the process of monitoring a parameter of condition in machinery (vibration, temperature etc.), in order to identify a significant change which is indicative of a developing fault. It is a major component of predictive maintenance. The use of condition monitoring allows maintenance to be scheduled, or other actions to be taken to prevent consequential damages and avoid its consequences. Condition monitoring has a unique benefit in that conditions that would shorten normal lifespan can be addressed before they develop into a major failure.
