Prevent 16% of premature bearing failures
Around 16% of all premature bearing failures are a result of poor fitting or using incorrect mounting techniques. Individual applications may require mechanical, heat or hydraulic mounting methods for correct and efficient bearing mounting. Selecting the mounting technique appropriate for your application will help you extend your bearing's service life and reduce costs resulting from premature bearing failure as well as potential damage to the application.
Shaft misalignment is responsible for up to 50% of all costs related to rotating machinery breakdowns. These breakdowns increase unplanned machinery downtime, resulting in higher maintenance costs and loss of production. Additionally, misaligned shafts can increase vibration levels and friction, which can significantly increase energy consumption and can cause premature bearing failures.
When dismounting bearings, care must be taken not to damage other machine components, such as the shaft or housing, as damage can result in compromising the machine's efficiency and lifetime. Bearings are sometimes dismounted to maintain or replace other components of the machine. These bearings are often re-used. Selecting the correct dismounting methods and tools is then essential in reducing the risk of damaging the bearing, allowing it to be used again. Dismounting bearings can be a hazardous and demanding task. Selecting the correct dismounting methods and tools is therefore of utmost importance for reducing the risk of personal injuries.
