30 factors causing bearing noise

time:2023-11-18   pv:1

1. Grease contains impurities;

2. Insufficient lubrication (the oil level is too low, improper storage causes oil or grease to leak through the seal);

3. The clearance of the bearing is too small or too large (factory problem);

4. Impurities such as sand or carbon particles are mixed into the bearing, which acts as an abrasive;

5. Water, acid or paint and other contaminants are mixed into the bearing, which will cause corrosion;

6. The bearing is pinched flat by the seat hole (the roundness of the seat hole is not good, or the seat hole is twisted and not straight);

7. The pad iron on the bottom surface of the bearing seat is uneven (leading to deformation of the seat hole or even cracks in the bearing seat);

8. There are debris in the bearing seat hole (remaining chips, dust particles, etc.);

9. The sealing ring is eccentric (hits adjacent parts and causes friction);

10. The bearing is subject to additional load (the bearing is axially tightened, or there are two fixed-end bearings on one shaft);

11. The fit between the bearing and the shaft is too loose (the diameter of the shaft is too small or the adapter sleeve is not tightened);

12. The clearance of the bearing is too small and it is too tight during rotation (the adapter sleeve is over-tightened);

13. There is noise in the bearing (caused by slippage of the end face of the roller or the steel ball);

14. The thermal elongation of the shaft is too large (the bearing is subject to statically indefinite additional axial load);

15. The shaft shoulder is too large (hits the bearing seal and causes friction);

16. The shoulder of the seat hole is too large (distorting the seal of the bearing);

17. The gap of the labyrinth seal ring is too small (friction occurs with the shaft);

18. The teeth of the lock washer are bent (hit the bearing and cause friction);

19. The position of the oil slinger is inappropriate (hits the flange cover and causes friction);

20. There are pressure pits on the steel balls or rollers (caused by hitting the bearings with a hammer during installation);

21. The bearing has noise (interference from external vibration source);

22. The bearing changes color and deforms when heated (caused by using a spray gun to heat and disassemble the bearing);

23. The shaft is too thick and the actual fit is too tight (causing the bearing temperature to be too high or making noise);

24. The diameter of the seat hole is too small (causing the bearing temperature to be too high);

25. The diameter of the bearing seat hole is too large and the actual fit is too loose (the bearing temperature is too high - the outer ring slips);

26. The bearing seat hole becomes larger (the bearing seat hole of non-ferrous metal is enlarged or becomes larger due to thermal expansion);

27. The cage is broken.

28. The bearing raceway is rusty. 

29. Steel balls and raceways are worn (the grinding process is unqualified or the product is bruised).

30. The ferrule raceway is unqualified (manufacturer problem).
