    2. What Is the Suitable Size of Small Bearings? 

    Small bearings are the bearings with a supposed external diameter of 28-55mm.

    Small and medium-sized bearings are with the supposed external diameter of 60-115mm.

    3. What Is the Purpose of Small Bearings?

    The vital role which small bearings play is given as:

    • Small bearings purpose is to lessen the friction which might occur between the rotating shaft of machines and make the rotating movement more and more smooth. 
    • Small bearings protect the parts which aid in movement because a heavy pressure is applied between rotating shaft. Small bearings prevent them damage. 
    • Small bearings help in positioning shaft in right place. 

    4. What Are the Applications of Small Bearings? 

     Small bearing finds its best use in various equipments and machines. They are mentioned below:

    • Automobiles
    • Refrigerators
    • Vacuum cleaners
    • Pressure rotors
    • Laptop cooling fans
    • Electric generators
    • Hard disk motors
    • Office equipments
    • Mining machines

    5. Does Corrosion Occur on Small Bearings?

    To answer this, operational failure of small bearings is due to dirt, debris and corrosion. Corrosion is the malfunction of industrial machinery. 

    This failure is caused by improper use of small bearings which results in a lot of noise and torque. Rotting also occur on small bearings as a result of wrong installation excessive load on it. 

    Signs of Corrosion

    The signs of corrosion include dark-colored and grey-colored bands across the raceways. You may find dents on raceways. 

    What Is Fretting Corrosion? 

    Fretting corrosion is a type of corrosion that occurs when the fix between the small bearings rings and the shaft become loose enough and the rolling element motion results in detaching of small particle from the top side. This kind of fretting corrosion might have deleterious effects on load distribution in small bearings.

    6. List the Features of Small Bearings? 

    The small bearings are round-shaped rolling elements that have high speed and produce less noise. They do not result in frictional torque and excessive vibration. It also do not consume large amount of energy. 

    Small bearings are produced in a sealed form. They are sealed in shields or other rubber seals to stop leaking of lubricating grease or entry of dust particles. Also crown type steel cage is used in small bearings. 

     7. What Are Small Bearings Made Up of? 

    Small bearings are made up of various components. Small bearings material is processed to attain the desired output and to escalate its working performance. For example, plastic, steel, metal or other materials are used depending upon the speed and load, etc. 

    Small Ball Bearings Constituents

    Mostly, small ball bearings are made of steel, sometimes it is referred as chrome stainless steel. 

    The chrome steel is also known as high-carbon chromium steel. The chrome steel composition has high carbon ratio and 1.5% chromium material which makes them vulnerable to corrosion. 

    The common method of heat treatment from chrome steel is to harden the steel in a controlled atmosphere furnace. Small bearings made of chrome steel can work at continuous temperature up to 120°C. 

    The elevated temperature (220°C) might have disastrous effects on their hardness as well as on their load carrying capacity. 

    Small bearings constructed from stainless steel have grade of 440 and a good resistance to moisture, chemicals and water. 

    Stainless steel of 316grade is corrosion resistant and is much softer than that of grade-440 stainless steel. It cannot be hardened when applied to extreme temperatures. 

    Ceramic small bearings are best for extreme temperatures and corrosion. 

    Small bearings made of plastic are not good enough to carry heavy loads as well as have low operational speed. 

    8. What Are the Reasons behind Failure of Small Bearings? 

    The major factors which leads to failure of small bearings are:

    1. Improper Lubrication 

    Small bearings failure results due to improper or wrong use of lubrications and excessive temperature heating that deteriorate the lubricant. 

    When the lubrication failure occurs you can see bluish and brownish patterns on small bearing rings. 

    2. Contamination

    Contamination occurs when the various substances or antigens enter the small bearings cleaning solutions and lubricants. Foreign agents include dirt, dust, steel chips and san

    In this condition, you can encounter dents on tiny rolling rings and raceways. Therefore, it is essential to maintain your working surroundings neat and clean. 

    3. Misalignment

    Misalignment in small bearing is the result of bent shaft, rooting out of nuts, and wrong installation due to loose-fix of rolling elements. 

    In this case, you might see that raceways balls tracks are not in parallel to raceway edges. 



    4. Improper Mounting 

    In this failure, small bearings are not mounted on a rotating ring with a press fit. This causes ‘thrust failure’ because in this case balls have no support on both inner and outer rolling rings. 

    Out of round housings, loose shaft fit, excessive tight fits, loose house fits and poor finish on bearing seats results in wear, cracked rings, fatigue and denting. 

    5. Corrosion

    Moisture, acids, low quality greasing, poor wrapping and condensation from high temperature reversals all results in corrosion. 

    When the corrosion occurs, reddish and brownish spots are seen. 

    6. Electrical Damage

    Constant flow of A.C (Alternate Current) and D.C (Direct Current) with the low current result in electrical damage. In this failure, brown marks may be seen on the raceways. 

    7. Fatigue

    This failure is also referred as ‘Spalling’ which is due to excessive preload, overloading and tight inner-rings fits. 

    Spalling causes high rate of vibrations and the running top-sides are ruptured. This also results in ejection of particles from hoop of small bearings. 

    8. Overheating

    Overheating is the cause of improper use of lubrication. 

    Overheating results in de-coloring of small bearing rings and also deteriorates the lubricant. Oxidation occur due to overheating which leaves the surface of the tiny rolling elements dry as the oil is removed from the grease and the running is seized. 

    9. Excessive Loads

    When there is excessive load on bearings, it results in failure.

    10. Improper Storage and Handling

    Not storing small bearings in a proper way can come in contact with dirt and debris and high temperatures results in degradation of grease. 

    Handling small bearings by scratching wrappings might expose them to dirt and corrosion. 

    9. How to Prevent the Failure of Small Bearings?

    Small bearings failure is caused by variety of reasons and solutions to prevent it are:

    • Using right lubricant and proper refilling intervals.
    • By following proper mounting measures
    • Misalignment failure can be fixed by using high precision grade lock nuts. Also inspecting shaft and housing from bearing seats.
    • False brinelling can be fixed by using lubricants consisting of anti-wear additives.
    • Corrosion can be prevented by using proper small bearing materials like stainless steel.
    • Properly insulate small bearings. 
    • Use of proper paths and cooling devices.
    • Storage and proper handling can be fixed by storing small bearings in clean and dry places and cover them.
    • Filter the tools and touch them with clean hands.  

    10. Is There Any Effect of Temperature on Small Bearings?

    Temperature conditions are extremely important in the efficient working of small bearings. If a bearing made for operating in normal temperature is used in extremely high temperature then the working of small bearings is highly affected. 

    High Temperature

    • Decay of lubrication as it becomes less adhesive. 
    • Hardness of metal is decreased to a greater extent
    • Seals become dry and break causing contamination.
    • Changes in fits and wearing of shaft. 

    Low Temperature

    • Viscous becomes too adhesive resulting in torque.
    • Seal failure occurs and entry of contaminant particles is must. 
    • Cage becomes delicate. 

    11. What are the Solutions for efficient Working of Small Bearings When They Get Too Hot?

    As the conditions for the heating of small bearing are different so the solution to the problem is different. 

    • Regularly fill the bearing surface with suitable amount of grease. Use high quality lubricating grease to avoid temperature damage. 
    • Use pressure oil cup and screw cap oil cup on the small bearings and rotate them frequently. 

    12. How to Clean and Lubricate Small Bearings?

    To ensure best working ability of your bearings, regularly clean and lubricate your small bearings. This act increases the durability and provide with the optimal speed of small bearings. Steps are:

    1. Take small bearings out of the motor.
    2. Then remove the shield of small bearings to reach the balls and cages. Some Metal-shielded bearings have a C clip round the outer part of raceways. 
    3. Then pull out the old particles and grease out of the small bearing races. 
    4. Put the bearings in a cleaning agent or a solvent and shake it well for few minutes and then place them in some clean solvent. 
    5. Use an air compressor to blow out to remove the curd or fluid out. 
    6. Now, dry the small bearings and add oil or grease in a minute quantity.
    7. Put the small bearings back and give a little spin. If it rotates smoothly then the cleaning process is successful. 

    13. What Are the Various Types of Small Bearings? 

    Let’s take a deeper look into various types of small bearings:

    • Ball Bearings

    Ball bearings are the tiny rolling elements which maintain the spaces between inner and outer races.

    The purpose is to rotate the shaft and reduces the friction between shaft and non-rotary machine parts. Ball bearings support radial and axial loads and are also referred as anti-frictional bearings. 

    Ball bearings have lower load capacity. The contact between the raceways and the balls is very small. 

    When one of the bearing races rotates, the balls rotate as well. 

    Ball bearings have lower coefficient faction than that of two flat surfaces sliding against one another just because they are rolling.

    18. What Do You Know About Small Mounted Bearings? 

    Just like small ball bearings features have become standard now-a-days, small mounted bearings are also in competition with them. 

    • Wide Inner Rings

    Wide inner rings give small mounted bearings an increased contact with the shaft. These are good at making it more stable. 

          2. Anti-Rotation Device

    The addition of anti-rotation device results in loose fits but still allows the small bearings to self-allign. This feature life span of small mounted bearings up to 33%

         3. Flinger Seal

    19. What Are Small Fluid Bearings? Describe Its Types? 

    Fluid bearings are small bearings in which load is carried by pressurized gas and the liquid between the bearing ring surfaces. They have possibility of zero-wear and the friction is low. 

    Types of Small Fluid Bearings

    • Hydrostatic Fluid Bearings

    It gives a positive pressure and results in clearance between rotating and non-rotating tiny elements. Lubrication is introduced between the running surfaces with the help of pressure. 

    Hydrostatic fluid bearings can bear heavy loads and it does not depend upon the lubrication and thickness of film. 

    It has damping and stiffness coefficient of very large magnitude. The negative side is that it consumes more power and cost for maintaining is high. 

    • Hydrodynamic Fluid Bearings

    In hydrodynamic fluid bearings, gap occurs due to motion of bearing elements. They have the ability to carry radial and thrust load. 

    Hydrodynamic fluid bearings depend upon the oily-film (air) which creates space when the spindle is in motion like, journal bearings.

    19. What Are Small Magnetic Bearings?

    Small Magnetic bearings are a type of small bearing that assists the load using magnetic field. In small magnetic bearings movement of parts occur without any physical contact.

    Small Magnetic bearings have the sky-high speed and no limitation is required for it. 

    Small magnetic bearings can raise the rotating shaft and relative motion which occurs produces less friction. Small magnetic bearings are wear resistant. 


    Used in electric power generation, natural gas handling, machine tools, turbo-molecular pumps and in petroleum refining industries.

    21. What Is the Difference between Active and Passive Magnetic Bearings?

    Small active magnetic bearings use magnetic force instead of any physical contact.

    Small Active Magnetic bearings generate bearing force by using electromagnets around the shaft. (AMB) Active Magnetic Bearing consists of:

    • Position sensor which determines the position of shaft.
    • Power supply
    • Power Amplifiers
    • Magnetic actuator
    • Magnetic bearing controller

    Small Active Magnetic bearings are furnished with safety bearings that protect from power failure.

    Small Passive Magnetic bearings are a type of bearing which is based upon forces or field of permanent magnet. Disposition of the shaft from the pivot point depends upon the force applied. 

    Small Passive Magnetic bearings are cheaper than that of Small Active Magnetic bearings and do not need any power supply. 

    22. Why Is Preload Necessary in Some Small Bearing Applications? 

    What is Preload?

    Preload is the axial or thrust force applied to the bearings to align the ring raceways. 

    Pre-loading the small bearings regulates the bearing efficiency and prevent from any damage. Without pre-loading small bearing rings will slide rather than rotating.

    Preload is determined by the size of bearing, stiffness, starting torque and loading limits.

    Excessive preload causes fatigue and increases heat.

    Inadequate preload causes vibrant vibrations and also leads to fretting of raceways. 

    Ways to Apply Preload

    Preload to small bearings can be applied in two ways:

    1. Spring preload
    2. Solid preload
    • Spring preload

    It is represented as when separate load or a wavy washer is placed on the small bearings. The wave springs act on the external rings. A continuous axial force is applied against the external rings of small bearings. This method is not used when a high stiffness is required. 

    • Solid Preload

    This preload is done by places inner and outer rings of small beatings in exact position with racers and locking mechanisms when axial force is applied. The advantage of solid preload is its high stiffness. Disadvantage of solid preload is that they are temperature dependent and thermal expansion and contraction occur. 

    23. What are the Features of Small Linear Bearings and Small Slide Bearings?

    Small Linear and slide bearings are the mechanical parts that move only in one direction. It has higher accuracy and produces less friction. It also consist of rotary axis when the last axis is capable of rotary movement. Slide bearings are light-weight and have long operating lifespan. 

    24. What Do You Know About Small Jewel Bearings?

    This type of small bearing is also called as plain bearing. The spindle present in it moves in a centralized point. 

    Features of small jewel bearings consist of high accuracy, low friction and temperature stability. Small Jewel bearings are designed in such as way that they can operate in corrosive environment. Oil lubrication lessens the friction. 

    25. How Do We Encounter Small Friction-Less Bearings?

    Small friction-less bearing uses air, gases and magnetic fields to support rotating elements. These include magnetic and air bearings. 

    26. What Are the Characteristics of Various Small Bearings?

    Small bearings have various types depending upon the size and shapes. 

    Small Rolling Bearings

    Small Rolling bearings are defined by line contact instead of point contact like small Ball bearings. Line contact provides higher loads but speed is low because of line contact. 

    Different types and characteristics of Small Rolling Bearings are:

    • Spherical Roller Bearings

    These bearings use spherical rollers. These small bearings are powerful and can support heavy loads. These can adjust the misalignment that occurs between rotating elements.

    Spherical Roller Bearings
