There are many moving parts to any piece of equipment. One moving part requiring particular attention are the bearings. When maintained and operating well, they allow the machinery to run with very few problems. When the bearings fail, though, the motor fails along with it.
Most of us are familiar with the common reasons for bearing failure. They include:
- Bearing misalignments
- Improper mounting
- Contaminated or improper lubrication
- High temperatures
- Bearing fatigue
- Improper storage techniques.
These are on average the first things to look for when problems occur with bearings. There are also other issues that arise and result in premature bearing failure. Here are three that may not be on the usual radar.
