Analyzing Bearing Failure
This is the second lesson in the iKNOW Bearings Library. 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.
