    V-RING SEAL  The function of a v ring seal, or v ring, is to snap over a rotating shaft and act as a centrifugal seal acting against the bearing face and throwing dirt and contaminants away from the bearing area, which will probably contain the primary sealing elements. V seals are not designed to seal against fluids or pressure differentials in […]

    Bearings are used to support the rotating components (like shafts) and bear the load which the rotating components carry. Principally, it has four major components: Outer ring: This fit tightly inside the outer structure which is generally not moving e.g. Pump/Motor Casing Inner ring: This ring fits tightly on the shaft and rotates with it. Balls: These are the components […]

    Bearing installation is as important as bearing design and cleanliness. Improper installation can damage the bearing assembly and can cause brinelling of the bearing, which can result in bearing vibration, noise, and reduced life. listed below are some tips that will help prevent incorrect installation and extend bearing life   Do not remove the bearing from its packaging until you […]
  • How to extend the lifespan and improve the performance of bearings

      First of all, lubrication is very crucial to the lifespan and performance of bearings. You need to select a proper lubrication system and high-quality lubricant. Lubricant oil film will separate the contact oil film surfaces caused by loading and provide proof against corrosion and abrasion. Therefore, lubrication oil film cannot be missing for normal running of all rotating and […]

    How to Measure and Choose the Correct Bearing Type Reference Numbers The quickest way to determine which bearing you require is using the bearings reference number. Most bearings have their references numbers engraved on the bearings themselves, but these often rub off over time and so it may be necessary to measure the bearing yourself, as described below. Measuring Bearings […]

    Overheating is a major indicator, along with vibration and noise, of an underlying problem affecting a bearing or related components. Because normal operating temperature varies widely from one application to another, no single temperature is a reliable sign of overheating in every situation. By observing an application when it is running smoothly, a technician can establish a benchmark temperature for […]

      Why do bearings fail? This is a common manufacturing question, but one that is not always easy to answer. Failure can be a result of many factors; extreme working conditions, maintenance and lubrication schedules, or industry-specific demands. Early indications of bearing failure can include machinery that is running unevenly, or at an exceptionally loud volume, or with reduced accuracy. […]

      Wheels, Shafts and Axles Rotate in Bearings. The roller became a wheel only when it could be safely positioned by a bearing assembled to the vehicle frame.  The history of the wheel is thus inseparably linked with the history of the bearing. Since there is no model in nature for guiding wheel on axles or axle journals, man faced […]
