•50-80% of rolling element bearing failures related to lubrication issues
•Variety of common fluid, filter and material analysis techniques available; however limitations on sensitivity to fluid condition, fluid contamination and wear debris exist
•Implementation of a fluid, filter and material analysis program has been proven to:
•Aid in identifying conditions leading to rolling element bearing failure
•Aid in early identification of rolling element bearing failures
•Successful implementation dependent on knowledge of rolling element bearing failure modes, along with capabilities of measurement technique
