Figure 2. Layers of Journal Bearing Structure. Journal bearings operate in the boundary regime (metal-to-metal contact) only during the startup and shutdown of the equipment when the rotational speed of the shaft (journal) is insufficient to create an oil film. It is during startup and shutdown when almost all of the damage to the bearing occurs. 2

The mill is a side drive as you refer to and the seals are of the twin lip type. We definitely have an issue with seals because of the amount of contamination in our oil. The tin content I assume is from the white metal bearings. It varies quite considerably with each sample, but is a real worry.

(preventive) reasons. Approximately 0,5% of bearings are replaced because they are damaged or fail. This means that some 50 000 000 bearings are replaced every year due to damage and failure. There are several reasons why bearings can be damaged or fail. Generally speaking,: 1/3 fail due to fatigue 1/3 fail due to lubrication problems

Reasons include blown fuses, broken belts, loose pulleys, wrong voltage and/or excessive line drop or inadequate wire size, a load inertia that's too great for the motor or a seized bearing. 3. Fan performance is wrong. Causes of inadequate airflow to the fan include a backwards installed or running impeller, improper blade angle setting ...

Like all moving machine elements, bearings in spindles can fail due to a variety of causes. While normal wear and tear is one of these causes, there are specific points of failure that are more common than others. Before it becomes necessary to repair a spindle due to bearing damage, consider these factors that may lead to spindle bearing failure:

Flaking and pitting occur early in a bearing's service life under the following conditions: 1)During operation, bearing internal clearance becomes narrower than specified. 2)Bearing ring is mounted at an inclination by mistake. 3)Flaw is created during mounting, or brinelling, nicks, rust, etc. occur on the raceway surface or rolling surface.

Inspect shafts and housings for runout of shoulders and bearing seats, and use precision-grade locknuts. 5. False Brinelling. Rapid movement of the balls in a raceway while equipment is idle wears away at the lubrication. In addition, a lack of rotation in the bearing does not allow fresh lubricant to return to the spot.

Friction is usually sufficient to keep bearings in place, but if minimum loads are light, then a slippage check must be made; use a friction coefficient of 0.2 between elastomer and steel or pre-cast concrete. A coefficient of 0.3 may be used for elastomer against broom-finished concrete or similar roughened surface.

Slide Drilling Challenges To initiate a slide, the driller must first orient the bit to drill in alignment with the trajectory pro-posed in the well plan. This requires the driller to stop drilling, pull the bit off-bottom and recipro-cate the drillpipe to release any torque that has built up within the drillstring. The driller then

Despite these special designs, high-temperature bearings can overheat and sustain damage if exposed to temperatures above their operational limits. Bearings should be protected from ambient conditions by a housing and/or a heat-shield skirt. In summary, proper bearing lubrication is the primary concern in all high-temperature applications.

Things break. No matter what you do, there is always a chance that products will fail. The same holds true for bearings, but that doesn't mean that you can't prevent many of the issues that result in costly downtime.. This article is a guide to the major factors that can lead to bearing failure as well as how you can prevent the issues from happening.
