  1. Bearings do these 4 things
    • Support moving parts
    • Reduce wear
    • Provides a replacable wear surface
    • Reduce friction
  2. What are 3 types of bearings
    • Anti-Friction bearings
    • Plain bearings
    • Elastamaric bearings
  3. What are the 2 types of bearing loads
    • Radial
    • Thrust
  4. 4 advantages of plain bearings
    • Rigid operation
    • quiet
    • low cost
    • requires little space
  5. 2 disadvantages of plain bearing
    • higher friction
    • requires continous lubrication
  6. 3 Advantages of anti-friction bearings
    • Low friction operation
    • Can be packed to reduce frequency of lubrication
    • More versatile due to many different designs
  7. 4 disadvantages of anti-friction bearings
    • noisier operation
    • require more space
    • higher cost than plain bearings
    • less rigidity than plain bearings

  13. 4 types of bearing sealing
    • No seal
    • one sided seal

  19. Ecccentric wear of bearing retianer is a sign of...
    poor lubrication or foreign material
  20. Flaking and smearing in a small area of the race is a sign of...
    defective lubrication
  21. brinnelling is caused by
    bearing impact while stationary
  22. repeated pitting of bearings can be a sign of ...
    electrical arcing due to poor grounding
  23. When drying bearings with air , what precaution should be taken
    hold both races to prevent spinning of bearing
  24. Before exposing bearings what should be done
    Remove all dirt from housing to prevent contamination
  25. Bearings should be stored in
    oil proof paper
  26. When installing a bearing what must never be done
    pounding directly on the bearing , always use a soft metal slug
  27. When choosing a drift , what must be kept in mind
    Must be of softer material than the bearing
  28. When precooling what should be done to protect bearing
    Put in sealed bag to prevent moisture from forming
