CARB cuts fan vibrations

Large fans such as those found in power stations or heavy industrial plants represent a considerable challenge to the bearing designer. Sometimes operating conditions give rise to excessive vibration in fan systems that can lead to failure and, consequently, plant shutdown. CARB bearings have been tested in this application, and results have shown significantly reduced vibration problems. The use of CARB bearings has been coupled with the use of a different type of housing that allows easier access during service. As the CARB bearing remains part of a solution that uses standard components, customers can still benefit from an economical answer to excessive vibration.
