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.

This webinar will provide an unconventional approach to quickly decipher all the information on a report in 2 minutes or less, using real examples, to encourage the reading of every report (not just those alarmed as critical).
Attendees will learn a new skill to save time reading reports, while bringing their oil analysis out of a reactive maintenance mode and back into a truly predictive maintenance mode...

There is a rule-of-thumb that oil should be condemned at double its new oil Acid Number, or at half of its new oil Base Number. The problem with this rule is that is has too many exceptions to be valid. Rather than identify the valid instances, it is better to understand how to derive a correct limit for any application..

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...
