Over the last three years IRS has been monitoring motor bearings displaying various stages of fatigue.
The site was experiencing a high frequency of electric motor bearing faults. Condition monitoring reports had identified specific motors as manifesting bearing defects and had suggested that a “lack of lubricant” was a significant factor contributing to the defects.
Over the course of several months, site maintenance personnel observed that lubrication system components were failing at a rate higher then what would normally be expected.
