Damage Condition Possible Causes Countermeasures
Smearing is surface damage which occurs from a collection of small seizures between bearing components caused by oil film rupture and/or sliding.
Surface roughening occurs along with melting.
  • High speed and light load
  • Sudden acceleration/deceleration
  • Improper lubricant
  • Entry of water
  • Improve the preload
  • Improve the bearing clearance
  • Use a lubricant with good oil film formation ability
  • Improve the sealing mechanism
