Bearing supplier NSK has produced a pocket-sized guide covering all aspects of rolling bearing maintenance. The free, 80-page guide is spiral bound to enable easy reading of individual sections by engineers in the workshop or in the field.
The guide is designed to help bearing users prevent damage caused by incorrect specification, mounting and improper handling, which are the common causes of premature bearing failure. It also gives data on the common causes of bearing failures and the countermeasures that can be employed to eliminate them.
The data is complemented by charts and graphs that provide at-a-glance information on such topics as basic bearing types; the ordering of replacement bearings; care and maintenance; the importance of proper fits; tolerances for housing bore diameters; mounting; and bearing lubrication.
A Bearing Doctor section provides clear images and explanations of a wide variety of bearing failures. Each image is in full colour and is accompanied by a description of the symptom of the failure, its possible cause and countermeasures to overcome it.
