77D11 Bearing Tester with Non-Contact Tacho

Ideally, rolling bearing elements are separated by a protective lubricant film, which impedes their collision. However, manufacturing defects, damages, which appear during operation, dirt in the bearing, insufficient or incorrect lubrication all these factors cause the collision of the bearing elements and, as a result, acoustic oscillations of a wide spectrum are generated in the bearing body.

Overview on Rolling Bearing Condition Monitoring

Ideally, rolling bearing elements are separated by a protective lubricant film, which impedes their collision. However, manufacturing defects, damages, which appear during operation, dirt in the bearing, insufficient or incorrect lubrication all these factors cause the collision of the bearing elements and, as a result, acoustic oscillations of a wide spectrum are generated in the bearing body.

A specially designed transducer (patent 18652) is used to filter out the part of this spectrum that carries information on the bearing faults detection. The transducer filters those acoustic oscillations which are generated by the bearing defects, and converts them into electronic signal proportional to the magnitude of shock pulse signal, that is amplified and measured by the BT-77 electronic unit in the relative units of decibels (dB).

A real new bearing is just from the beginning of its use, a source of induced vibration, the amplitude of the shock pulse of which is dBi.

The dBi, initial value depends on the large number of factors; however, in practice it is possible to limit them to diameter D (mm) of the neck and its rotating speed N N N (rpm). The value of dBi features the condition of a new correctly installed and lubricated bearing.

The shock pulse amplitude increases as a result of wear and improper use. Shock acceleration amplitude over running the value of dBi - dBsv features a damage, and is used for the evaluation of bearing condition.
