Low-speed bearing monitoring – Challenges and Solutions, 2016 Pulping, Engineering, Environmental, Recycling, Sustainability (PEERS) Conference Proceedings

Reliability and performance of large size, low-speed bearings have a significant impact on mill output as they are used in critical applications such as twin roll presses, lime kilns, etc. A single unexpected failure can result in a production stoppage that costs tens to hundreds of thousands of dollars. Finding developing damage in these bearings through vibration measurement and analysis has always been a
focus in condition monitoring programs, but through the years results have been mixed. In this presentation, we will discuss the challenges of monitoring very low-speed bearings (20 RPM and below) as well as systems and techniques that have been found to be effective. Cases studies will be used to illustrate the results in real-life applications. One example will include root cause analysis of the bearing failure as well as subsequent solutions to increase reliability and in-service life.

TAPPI conference proceedings and presentations, technical papers, and publication articles provide technical and management data and solutions on topics covering the Pulp, Paper, Tissue, Corrugated Packaging, Flexible Packaging, Nanotechnology and Converting Industries.
