When managing your rotating machinery’s overall health, the condition of your rolling element bearings plays a critical role. A single bearing failure alone can cause machine shutdown, resulting in costly downtime and production loss.
At Bently Nevada we offer a wide range of bearing condition monitoring tools, software, and equipment for early bearing fault detection and diagnosis. From vibration sensors to data acquisition tools and diagnostic software, we have the solutions you need to keep your plant running efficiently and effectively. Properly designed and carefully lubricated bearings can have virtually infinite life. However, given enough time all REBs will eventually fail through a fatigue mechanism that can be greatly accelerated by poor installation, overloading, improper lubrication, or contamination.
