Failure Analysis: Bearings

Method Visual Assessment, Harness Testing, Electron Microscopy
Standards In-House Method

Understanding the root cause of bearing failures by review of the wear patterns generated through progression of a fault in a rotating system.


Techniques such as ICP-OES, hardness testing, electron microscopy and energy dispersive x-ray analysis are then also used to review lubricant condition and metallurgical properties to assess likely causes of failure.
