These errors fall into just five different categories and when left unchecked, can reduce the life of a bearing by 50 percent or more:
- Misalignment of the bearing rails and moving elements.
- Inadequate lubrication of the bearing’s unsealed components.
- Contamination of the bearing rails and raceways.
- Crash on start-up.
- Excess speed and acceleration.
Rollon has now made it easier than ever to avoid the application mistakes that threaten bearing life.
Our technical service team has published a new playbook explaining the five causes of bearing failure in detail and offering advice on how to steer clear of them.
