Bearing Inspector II Torque Testing of Anti-Friction Bearings and Assemblies

Bearing Inspector II

The Bearing Inspector II is a bench top system for measuring the torque characteristics of anti friction bearings and bearing assemblies. Contained in the system are a customized computer, monitor, keyboard, and the necessary circuitry for performing a test and processing the results. User-friendly menus enable the operator to rapidly become proficient with the operation of this National Instruments Labview based system.

The BRG-3000 series of bearing test systems are designed to comply with MIL-STD-206B.

Standard features such as 2 serial ports, one parallel port, four USB ports and a CD/DVD drive are provided.

Test configurations are stored in memory and are retrievable with the click of a mouse key, avoiding time consuming setups. Test results can be stored in memory or on a disk and then transported to other peripheral devices for further analysis and processing.

Testing Capabilities

Both starting torque and running torque can be measured with the same system, the same tooling and in the same test cycle. From this testing a variety of bearing problems can be identified.

  • Bearing Contamination
  • Retainer Hang-up
  • Brinelled or Pitted Raceways
  • Poor Geometry
  • Structural Defects
  • Reporting Options

Customized reports that show only the required information for a particular customer or a specific application can be easily generated, viewed on the screen and outputted to a conventional printer or strip chart printer.
