Bearings - Reducing Failure Rate BundleIn Mechanical
This two (2) lesson library trains participants to remove, inspect, select, handle, install, and troubleshoot bearings.
PrerequisitesThis library is designed for participants familiar with safe shop practices and the use of hand tools and precision measuring instruments.
DescriptionThis comprehensive interactive multimedia-training program consists of two individual lessons that train participants remove, inspect, select, handle, install, and troubleshoot bearings according to manufacturers’ instructions and best practices. Participants learn how to identify replacement bearings and install and maintain the bearings properly using the right tools.
AudienceThis program is excellent for training mechanics and mill wrights as well as for the multi-craft needs of process and manufacturing facilities.
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.
- Bearing Failure Analysis
This lesson explains and demonstrates how to clean and disassemble
bearing housings and how to dismount, inspect, and mount common types of
bearings. The importance of cleanliness and following manufacturers’
instructions are stressed throughout each demonstrated procedure.
