Before taking full advantage of ultrasonic technology, many of us go to great lengths to identify a failing condition in our anti-friction bearings. We look for either the smallest change in movement or a slight increase in surface temperature to tell us that something is not working properly. Could there be a more obvious measurement that will tell us that not only is something wrong, but more importantly, that will also help prevent the failure from occurring in the first place? Yes, and using ultrasonic equipment and analysis, it is so obvious! It is in the bearing’s name - Friction!
