Wear and tear naturally occur over time for any bearing. For parts used in high-speed applications, the negative effects of wear and tear can become a major issue much sooner.
High-speed applications create a pair of problems for your bearing’s wellbeing: more heat and friction. Without proper planning and precautions, the added heat and friction caused by high-speed use can cause churning, slippage, and early breakage. Not only will this lead you to quickly ramp up your part replacement budget, it can also lead to lost potential revenue from unplanned downtime and a need to allocate valuable resources to avoidable issues.
Fortunately, a mix of proper bearing selection and preventative measures can help you make sure your bearings are built to handle high speeds. Here’s what you can do to help extend the lifespan of bearings used in high-speed applications.
Once of the best ways to limit the impacts of friction is through proper lubrication. A well-lubricated bearing can help reduce slippage and churning, while limiting other forms of wear and tear that can cause early part failure.
In addition to proper lubrication, load requirements also play a major role in the lifespan of your bearings. While you can sometimes change your systems overall load, it’s typically easier to try and match your bearings to the load requirements of your applications.
Finding the right bearings for your application can not only help your system run efficiently, it can also save you from the hassle cause by early part failure. At nexans bearing , we can help you identify the perfect bearings for your performance needs and budget.
