A New Technique for Condition Monitoring of Rolling Element Bearings Using a Portable Data Collector

  • G. A. Ratcliffe


This paper discusses the techniques used to monitor the condition of rolling element bearings in the field. The limitations of present techniques are discussed and a new technique that overcomes most of these limitations is introduced. Implementation of the techniques using a portable data collector is demonstrated together with typical case studies.
