Bearing Noise and Vibration

Noise and Vibration Detection

Bearing Noise and Vibration Detection:

Bearing noise and vibration – important metrics for bearing quality

Usually we use instrument S0910-1 to detect the noise of ball bearings.
We devide bearing noise into four levels: Z1, Z2, Z3, and Z4.
The higher the level, the lower the noise.

While for bearing vibriation, we use the instrument BVT-1 to detect.
We divide bearing vibration into four levels: Z1, Z2, Z3, and Z4.
The higher the level, the smaller the vibration.

Is Bearing Accuracy Standard Related to Noise Level?

Generally, the accuracy of bearings has nothing to do with the noise level. They are two different grade standards.
As long as we measure bearing accuracy according to rotation accuracy and dimensional accuracy. While we judge noise by the decibel value of the abnormal sound during rotation. One is size and the other is decibel value.
Therefore, bearing accuracy standard has nothing to do with noise level.
