Course Summary

Introduction

The useful life and performance of rotary machine parts depends to a large extent on the bearings that support them. The selection of an appropriate bearing and the quality of its installation are two factors which have an impact on the performance of rotary equipment.

This course covers the different types of rolling bearings and their uses, the selection of the appropriate type of rolling bearing depending on the conditions under which it will be used, installation and removal techniques, and the causes of premature wear of rolling bearings.

Topics covered in this course include:

  • types of bearings and their uses,
  • choosing a bearing,
  • tolerances in a rolling bearing,
  • removal and installation of a rolling bearing,
  • analysis of a rolling bearing's condition,
  • vibration analysis,
  • analysis of oils, and
  • suggestions for practical exercises.

Learning Outcomes

  • Identify and describe the function of the various types of bearings.
  • Select a rolling bearing suitable for the conditions under which it will be used.
  • Describe the various installation/removal techniques for rolling bearings.
  • Identify the main causes of premature wear of rolling bearings.

Recommended Background

  • This course is suitable for anyone with an interest in mechanical maintenance, electrical maintenance, or conditional monitoring for mining applications.

HumEng International

HumEng provides online courses and assessments for mechanical maintenance, electrical maintenance, and condition monitoring for applications in mining.

The HumEng mission is to design, develop and implement training solutions that increase operational efficiency and productivity, and to sustain these improvements through training best practices.

The HumEng approach to training is based on skills management. Experience has proven that the acquisition of key skills, and the transfer of these skills to the shop floor, increases a company's competitiveness. This is even truer today, when operations must often rely on fewer employees, due to rationalization or to recruiting challenges.
