The early detection and fault analysis of bearing problems is crucial. When a rolling-element bearing develops flaws on the races and/or rolling elements, there are four vibration frequencies that can result...

The analysis of machine states in CBM can be accomplished using various methods. The probably most common methods are analysis in the time domain, analysis in the frequency domain, and a mix of the two. This tip reviews high level methods for using each of these approaches to determining machine health.

Failure mechanisms such as misalignment, balance, or lubrication issues can cause machinery failure. Many of these problems can be identified using standard non-destructive testing (NDT) methods including vibration analysis, infrared thermography, and tribology....

Organizations may be tempted to throw IIoT-enhanced devices and software at the wall to see what sticks. This may be an option, but it’s not conducive to a successful maintenance program rollout...

So what does it really mean to increase lubricant cleanliness? We read various articles and textbooks that talk about how increasing the cleanliness of an in-service oil will increase the life of a component and the lubricant, but how do we make that happen...
