List five things that could cause premature bearing failure.

To determine

The five things which leads to premature bearing failure.

Answer

The five among many factors are weight, overheating, corrosion, dust, and lack of lubricant.

Explanation

Although, there are many factors which lead to premature bearing failure. The five among those are discussed here:

  1. When bearings tend to weigh, it leads to premature bearing failure.
  2. When there is overheating then, there is discoloration of the rings and ball which leads to reduction in the hardness of the bearings which causes premature failure.
  3. When the bearing meets any of the particles which is of corrosive nature like any chemical particles, then the failure occurs in the bearing.
  4. The premature bearing failure due to the harm caused by the dust or any other like substances is one of the main factors among all.
  5. The failure is also a result of the lack of required lubrication in the bearings.

Conclusion:

The above are five causes for the failure of premature bearing.
