rolling element bearing diagnostics using the case

Rather than being a review of all the current literature on bearing diagnostics its purpose is to explain the background for a very powerful procedure which is successful in the majority of cases The latter contention is illustrated by the application to a number of very different case histories from very low speed to very high speed machines Using these condition monitoring techniques correctly it is possible to detect a bearing fault a year or more before it would ultimately fail But using these technologies it is possible to look for signs that indicate the approximate remaining life Case studies will

In this paper the rolling bearing vibration signals for testing are from Case Western Reserve University Bearing Data Center The related rolling element bearing experimental device consists of a torque meter a power meter and a three-phase induction motor and the load power and speed are measured by the sensors as shown in figure 2

Dec 08 2005The model predicts significant components at the harmonics of characteristic defect frequency for a defect on the particular bearing element In the case of a defect on the inner race or a rolling element the model predicts sidebands about the peaks at defect frequencies at multiples of shaft and cage frequencies respectively

However in practice this is rarely the case and due to a number of factors the rolling elements undergo a combination of rolling and sliding As a consequence the actual characteristic defect frequencies may differ slightly from those predicted but this is very dependent on the type of bearing operating conditions and fits

Bearing Type Two primary types of bearings are in use today Rolling Element Bearings and Journal or Sleeve Bearings Rolling Element Bearings are zero (0) clearance devices All vibration of the shaft is transmitted directly to the bearing cap Journal or Sleeve Bearings are designed so that the oil film provides damping

Vibration Analysis of Rolling Element Bearings (Air

electromagnetic issues can be identified using vibration signal signature Taking into account that rolling element bearings (REB) are major components of any rotating equipment a timely bearing defect identification has substantial importance Albrecht et al (1986) research showed that about 41% of catastrophic failures in motors

1 2 Diagnostics of rolling element bearings Rolling element bearings fail in a number of differ-entways(spalling brinnelling etc ) andas the result of a number of factors (fatigue oil contaminations over-load etc ) Fatigue results in the appearance of spalls on the inner race outer race or rolling elements If one

Dec 01 2015Vibration-based rolling element bearing diagnostics is a very well-developed field yet researchers continue to develop new diagnostic algorithms quite frequently Over the last decade data from the Case Western Reserve University (CWRU) Bearing Data Center has become a standard reference used to test these algorithms yet without any recognised benchmark it is difficult to properly

Dec 01 2015The data set provided by the Case Western Reserve University (CWRU) Bearing Data Center has become such a standard reference in the bearing diagnostics field with the authors counting 41 papers using the CWRU data published in Mechanical Systems and Signal Processing between 2004 and early 2015 1

A rolling-element bearing also known as a rolling bearing is a bearing which carries a load by placing rolling elements (such as balls or rollers) between two bearing rings called races The relative motion of the races causes the rolling elements to roll with very little rolling resistance and with little sliding One of the earliest and best-known rolling-element bearings are sets of logs

Rolling bearing fault diagnostics using artificial neural networks based on rolling element bearings it is imperative to establish a suitable condition monitoring procedure to prevent malfunction and bearing faults and one normal bearing case have been used to evaluate the proposed technique The wavelet contour map is used as

diagnostics of rolling element bearing defects is investigated Vibration signatures of these parameters are compared and sensitivity of vibration analysis is studied Overall vibration increases in presence of local defects and dynamic radial loads Keywords—Condition monitoring rolling element bearing

Welcome to the Case Western Reserve University Bearing Data Center Website This website provides access to ball bearing test data for normal and faulty bearings Experiments were conducted using a 2 hp Reliance Electric motor and acceleration data was measured at locations near to and remote from the motor bearings

How To Diagnose Rolling Bearing Failures

Characteristics: Dents or grooves in the bearing track conforming to the shape of the rolling elements Grinding marks not obliterated and the metal at the edges of the dents has been slightly raised Causes: The rolling elements have been brought into violent contact with the race in this case during assembly using

Assessment of bearing performance degradation is more effective than fault diagnosis to realize CBM Palmgren and Lundberg [1-3] have given foundation of developing life prediction methods for ball and roller bearings which resulted in standards for the load ratings and life of rolling-element bearings [4-6]

Vibration Analysis of Rolling Element Bearing Faults Localized faults in a rolling element bearing may occur in the outer race the inner race the cage or a rolling element Each of these faults is characterized by its own frequency which is usually listed by the manufacturer or calculated from the bearing specifications

Dec 08 2005The model predicts significant components at the harmonics of characteristic defect frequency for a defect on the particular bearing element In the case of a defect on the inner race or a rolling element the model predicts sidebands about the peaks at defect frequencies at multiples of shaft and cage frequencies respectively

Jun 29 2012The second case was taken from a wind turbine with an inner race fault The usage of the MED technique has shown a strong enhancement for both fault detection and diagnosis The paper contributes to the knowledge of fault detection of rolling element bearings through providing an insight into the usage of MED in rolling element bearings diagnostic

The analyzed results show that the feature of a bearing defect is extracted clearly and the bearing fault can be effectively identified using the proposed method Key-Words: - Fault Diagnosis Rolling Element Bearing Envelope Analysis Kurtosis Wave Information Divergence 1 Introduction In the case of fault diagnosis in plant machinery
