Why is Bearing Alignment Important? By Victor Wowk P E

Pillow-block bearings can be misaligned if the support plate is not flat Rolling-element bearings have some internal clearance which is available for thermal expansion and to accommodate some small misalignment between the rings When this clearance is used up then we have hard metal against hard metal with high contact forces The bearing makes

Bearing Overheating

Jul 05 2017Overheating is a major indicator along with vibration and noise of an underlying problem affecting a bearing or related components Because normal operating temperature varies widely from one application to another no single temperature is a reliable sign of overheating in every situation By observing an application when it is running smoothly a
