Abstract
This paper discusses outer raceway fault detection and localization for rolling element bearings by means of thermal imaging. In particular, deep groove ball bearings have been monitored. Whereas bearings in industrial applications are usually fully covered, the used test setup allows to monitor the uncovered bearings to understand their heat increase and propagation. The main contribution of this paper is the methodology to process and analyse the thermal data of the bearings. The presented methodology is applied on both a healthy bearing and a bearing with outer raceway fault. By revealing significantly higher temperatures for the faulty bearing than for the healthy bearing, thermal imaging enables fault detection. Additionally, the stationary characteristic of the outer ring allows to locate the outer raceway fault by means of its thermal impact.
