Case Study #4 – Vibrating Screen Gearbox Bearing Defect

Hello Everyone,

Here is the fourth of the five case studies brought to you with the Reliability Training Institute.

In this case study we show that by measuring the correct vibration parameters you can resolve defects in harsh applications, even an inner raceway defect on a vibrating screen. Hopefully, you are finding them of use and helpful.

These case studies are to support my book ‘Enhanced System Reliability Through Vibration Technology’ and my new role as an RMS Trainer with the RMS Reliability Training Institute.

Many thanks to Dr Jezdimir Knezevic from MIRCE Science for his enlightening discussion (and MIRCE Science) and to Dean and Stuart at RMS for all their support.

This case study and more can also be viewed on the RMS Blog.

  1. Given the inadequate lubrication on start-up, a suggested modification is to make the lube system forced flow with other added benefits: added filtration to maintain cleanliness of the oil and the addition of an in-line MetalSCAN oil debris monitoring sensor that will provide many months of early warning (P-F trending) with reliable operating limits.
