First of all, we can judge whether there is failure by sound, but this requires operators with rich experience and rigorous training to identify there is bearing noise;
Then, it can be judged according to the equipment temperature . There are some limitations of this method, we need to record temperature changes to determine whether the bearing fault or not only in the operating state;
Finally, when lubricate the bearing, we can also judge bearing whether there is fault or hidden trouble from dirty lubricant, if it is mixed with foreign matter ,other metal powder or dust, the bearing is bound to a fail.
