A new free booklet aims to help bearing users overcome the damaging effects of incorrect mounting and improper handling, which are the most common causes of premature bearing failures The free publication, "Handling instructions for bearings", is one of the most comprehensive of its type, running to 40 pages and divided into five sections.
These deal with all aspects of bearing procedures, including handling of bearings, mounting, maintenance and inspection, dismounting and bearing storage.
All of the sections are easy to assimilate, and are complemented by charts and graphs that provide at-a-glance information on such factors as fits for radial, thrust and taper bearings, grease types and properties, temperature and thermal expansion, preload, tolerances for housing bore diameters, and many more.
In addition to the comprehensive charts, what also sets the handling instructions publication apart are the pages, in the maintenance and inspection section of the publication, devoted to images of bearings that have failed.
Each image is in full colour and is accompanied by a description of the symptom of the failure and its cause.
