Due to limited time and tight schedules, major outages require many resources and are often stressful processes. While many companies focus on reactive maintenance because of a culture built decades ago, a small perspective change toward a proactive approach can provide enormous value to equipment reliability and uptime.

Estimating the Remaining Life of a Rolling Element Bearing with Vibration, Ultrasound, Oil, and Infrared Analysis
In this animated presentation, Jason will explain how vibration analysis, ultrasound, oil analysis and wear particle analysis, as well as infrared analysis, can be used to detect rolling element bearing faults and provide an indication of the remaining life of the bearing. Using these condition monitoring techniques correctly, it is possible to detect a bearing fault a year or more before it would ultimately fail. But using these technologies, it is possible to look for signs that indicate the approximate remaining life.

We live in challenging times. This is particularly true in the predictive maintenance world, and acutely true in the area of vibration analysis. Today, most manufacturing sites have active reliability programs in place with the means of measuring plant performance and processes to find and correct repetitive problems that effect plant uptime...
