This lesson explains the purpose of bearings and demonstrates how
bearings reduce friction and maintain the alignment of operating
equipment. The basic operation of anti-friction bearings and plain
journal bearings is demonstrated as well as the importance of full fluid
film lubrication and proper lubrication clearance. Additionally,
indications of various premature bearing failures are discussed.
