SLT 09 - Vibration analysis of rolling element bearings
(SLT 09)

Rolling element bearings are designed to have a long and useful life. Assuming the application is correct to begin with, maximizing longevity means bearings must be properly installed, lubricated and maintained. Poor operating environments, particularly moist or contaminated areas and improper handling practices invite premature bearing failure. Condition monitoring of rolling element bearings using vibration analysis can prevent majority of problems and failures in rolling element bearings.
