This program is excellent for Maintenance engineers in medium and large industries like process and manufacturing facilities. These lesson are is designed by bearings experts for participants familiar with safe bearings shop floor practices and the use of hand tools and precision measuring instruments.
This comprehensive interactive multimedia training program is designed to train participants to remove, inspect, select, handle, install, and troubleshoot bearings according to manufacturers' instructions and best practices. Participants learn how to identify replacement bearings and install and maintain the bearings properly using the right tools.
This lesson explains the purpose of bearings and demonstrates how bearings reduce friction and maintain the alignment of operating equipment. The basic operation of anti-friction bearings and plain journal bearings is demonstrated, as well as the importance of full fluid film lubrication and proper lubrication clearance. Additionally, indications of various premature bearing failures are discussed.
After completing the sessions the participants will be able to:
Understand how bearings reduce friction.
Describe radial, axial (thrust), and angular load in terms of the pressure applied to the shaft and bearing.
Understand the operation of common types of plain bearings and their applications.
Understand the operation of common types of anti-friction bearings and their applications.
Understand the purpose of seals and shields and the conditions when each is used.
Relate the "interference fit" to bearing operation.
Recognize common indications of bearing failure.
Identify common types of premature bearing failure and some of the means used to prevent them.
