Figure 4. Friction at rolling contact and guide flanges was carried out on a test setup to deter- mine the actual operating conditions. The result was a ma ximum bearing temperature of only 130 degrees C. By selecting a grease that was suitable for this temperature range and by maxi- mizing the amount of grease in the bearing, the specified service life could then be achieved. Improving Bearing Reliability As can be seen from these examples, the operational reliability and durability of bearings can be significantly improved by correctly assessing and adjusting lubri- cation. is also helps to reduce initial costs and avoid other costs associated with premature bearing failures. As a general rule, the sooner the issue of lubrication is addressed, the easier and more cost effec- tively potential problems can be dealt with or avoided. ML ML www . | March - April 2018 | 37
