  Bearing (mechanical) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Bearings may be classified broadly according to the motions they allow and according to their principle of operation.
A rotary bearing or thrust bearing allows motion about a center, such as a wheel on a shaft or a shaft through a housing.
The first practical caged-roller bearing was invented in the mid-1740s by horologist John Harrison for his H3 marine timekeeper.

 Ball Bearings, Mechanical Assemblies, Miniature Precision Radial
Miniature bearings and instrument bearings are typically available in both stainless steel for those applications requiring corrosion resistance and chrome for maximum fatigue life.
NMB radial bearings are used in aircraft components, such as wing flaps, engine and wing mounts and hatches, and rod-ends.
Many of these mechanical assemblies are found in office automation, including integral bearings for use in rigid disk drive spindles, and as part of printers, fax machines and copiers.

 Maintenance knowledge: Bearing mounting - Mechanical bearing mounting
Mounting force can be applied to the bearing by placing a fitting tool impact ring and sleeve against the inner ring and using a press or hammer to advance the bearing to its proper location on the shaft.
When bearings are mounted cold, care must be taken to ensure that the drive-up forces are applied to the ring with the interference fit.
Method: Correct adjustment of spherical roller bearings is determined by measuring the residual internal clearance in the bearing or by the amount of axial drive-up.

 Fluid bearing - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Fluid bearings are bearings which solely support the bearing's loads on a thin layer of liquid or gas.
Fluid bearings use a thin layer of liquid or gas fluid between the bearing faces, typically sealed around or under the rotating shaft.
Ice skates are a hydrodynamic fluid bearing where the skate and ice are separated by a layer of water caused by entropy (formerly thought to be caused by pressure-induced melting; see ice skating for details).

 Feature - The Fluid Transition
Hybrid ball bearings used in the high-end milling spindles in service today appear to represent the practical limit of how much speed and power a mechanical bearing can put to use and still maintain a long service life.
Accuracy in a ball bearing is affected by the stack-up of mechanical tolerances.
For example, part of the difficulty of servicing a mechanical bearing is the lubrication system that forms a critical and complex connection between stationary and rotating parts.

When a bearing fails, it is typically evidenced by a leaking seal (stand alone).
Bearing failure will typically not destroy seal faces unless it is catastrophic, or is allowed to continue to the point that bearing seats are damaged, which will almost always lead to seal face damage.
If the bearing itself is the seal housing, it is safe to assume that the simple removal of the bearing is all that is required to replace the seal material.

Pumps are also a major user of polymer lined bearings with oil lubrication and ceramic bearings for lubrication by contaminated process fluids.
High speed compressors with flexible shafts can be very demanding of journal bearings in terms of their required dynamic properties; 4 or 5 pad tilting pad journal bearings are commonly used.
Depending on size and whether vertical or horizontal orientation, generators use the full range of WBC mechanical bearing designs, as internal bearings or in complete assemblies; fixed profile or tilting pad radial and tilting pad thrust for vertical machines.

 Galibier Design - Bearing
The belt pulls at a point midway between the bearing journals (the contact surfaces of the bearing).
This geometry confers dynamic stability to the bearing and platter which is experienced as pitch stability in the music.
The massive bearing housing and large sump capacity (8.5cc) further minimizes stress on the oil.

 Stereophile: Immedia RPM-2 tonearm
An arm's bearing system must be loose enough to allow the stylus unimpeded movement in both vertical and horizontal dimensions, yet rigid enough to prevent the forces unleashed by this violent mechanical interface from tossing the arm around—the "tail wagging the dog" effect.
Various combinations of mass, mechanical stiffness, and damping are used in all tonearms to rid the systems of unwanted energy, either by absorbing (damping) it and turning it into heat, or by evacuating it via a path to "ground," where it is again turned into heat.
Installing the arm atop the bearing post is complicated somewhat by the Discovery wiring harness—one continuous length running from the cartridge pins to the RCA plugs.

 www.davidson.com.au - UE Systems Ultrasonic Detection Applications
Inspection of mechanical equipment with ultrasonic instruments such as the Ultraprobe has many advantages.
Ultrasound inspection provides early warning of bearing failure, detects lack of lubrication, prevents over lubrication and can be used on high as well as low speed bearings.
Once a series of bearings have been tested, and a base line set, data is recorded and then compared to future readings for historical trending and analysis.

 Ultraprobe Ultrasonic Detection Applications
In addition, since ultrasound is a high frequency, short wave signal, it is possible to filter out stray, confusing background noises and focus on the specific item to be inspected.
In order to trouble shoot bearings or to establish a baseline, it is necessary to compare similar bearings for potential differences in amplitude and sound quality.
To do this, make a permanent reference point on a bearing housing or use the grease fitting, tune to 30 kHz and adjust the sensitivity to read the intensity/decibel level on the display panel.

Most bearings operate with a fluid film -- oil, another liquid, or a gas.
Or the bearing can be made of a porous metal impregnated with oil that "bleeds" to the bearing surface as the shaft rotates.
Hinge bearings in aircraft landing gears, for example, do not move fast enough to develop hydrodynamic films, yet hydrostatic systems would be too heavy, costly, and cumbersome.

 Magnetic-Bearing Momentum Wheel, AMSAT Phase 3-D Satellite
Moreover, the 2 DOF actively controlled bearing allows a high momentum-to-mass ratio of the wheel as parts of the bearing contribute to the momentum storage capacity.
This is done by lowering the flux density in the narrow gap to 0.54 T (at 180 degrees) and increasing the flux density in the wide gap to 0.87 T (at 0 degrees) by sending current to generate a magneto-inductive force of 2400 AW through the coils.
The magnetic bearing coils were designed for high efficiency and thus their time constant is long compared to the characteristic frequency omega_o of the loop.

 0798
If the remaining two bearings can't be matched to the new bearing two new bearings must be installed and the other two put into the supply room to be referenced against the next bearing failure.
I think the outer bearing could be a standard radial needle bearing with one thicker, say.062 layer of perhaps fiber reinforced rubber around it (such as found in reinforced rubber hose) pressed into the block.
Elastomeric bearings are bearings and are susceptible to failure although the failure manifests itself in different ways as opposed to a metal bearing.

 Bearing design, manufacture and maintenance - Reliability of oil mist lubrication   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-02)
The direct cause is the failure of the pump mechanical seal which cause the crude oil to leak.
The fire is caused by the hot crude oil (140 C) leaking from the damaged mechanical seal, not the oil mist itself.
What I am saying is that poor oil mist distribution may cause failure of pump bearing which then induce a seal failure, and let crude oil leak to the air.

CERBEC balls are lighter, stiffer, smoother, harder, corrosion resistant, require less lubrication and have lower thermal expansion than their steel counterparts which allow the bearing to run at higher speeds, higher operational temperatures with less lubrication.
To minimize the problem, special coatings can be applied to the outer race, however the process is time-consuming, costly and not perfectly reliable.
A better solution is the use of CERBEC ceramic balls which provide electrical insulation,increased bearing performance, and reliability.
