Review
To manufacture quality products or provide services at competitive prices is essential to survive in today's business climate. We are forced to look for better ways of doing things on continual basis. To meet customer's needs - on their schedule - requires (high) availability and reliability of equipment and systems when they are needed. In the maintenance and reliability (M&R) field, professionals are constantly challenged

to implement the best way to ensure equipment is available as and when it is needed at a reasonable cost. These are called "best practices." But it is not as simple as putting something into effect. To truly realize a best practice requires learning, relearning, benchmarking and implementing better ways of ensuring high reliability and availability of equipment and systems.

Excerpt
Ultrasonic inspection and monitoring of bearings is a reliable method for detecting incipient bearing failure. The ultrasonic warning appears prior to a rise in temperature or an increase in driving torque. Ultrasonic inspection of bearings is useful in recognizing the beginning of fatigue failure, brinnelling of bearing surfaces, flooding of (or lack) of lubricant. In ball bearings, as the metal in the raceway, roller, or bearing balls begins to fatigue, a subtle deformation begins to occur. This deforming of the metal will produce an increase in the emission of ultrasonic waves.
