Mounting and dismounting rolling bearings
The correct mounting and dismounting of rolling element bearings can save time and dramatically increase the life of bearings, as well as maximising the availability of critical plant and machinery by avoiding costly breakdowns.
The key here is to ensure that the appropriate tools and equipment for the mounting and dismounting of rolling bearings are on hand for the engineer at the installation or assembly stage. Appropriate tools may include thermal mounting and dismounting tools, induction-heating devices, mounting paste and heating rings, as well as feeler gauges, hydraulic extractors, hydraulic nuts and hand pump sets. Using the correct tools ensures that bearings are mounted and removed easily and quickly without causing damage to the bearings or surrounding equipment and in a safe and reliable way.
To help plant, maintenance and service engineers, Schaeffler UK has recently published a new technical guide entitled 'Mounting and Dismounting of Rolling Bearings'. This handy, pocket-sized guide includes useful guidance and clear instructions on how to store, handle, clean, mount, dismount, lubricate and maintain rolling bearings. The guide also includes a special section that discusses the possible typical causes of bearing damage and failure.
