Pillow Block/ Plummer Block Thermography
I am conducting a thermography survey on our conveyor system, do we have a standard that needs to follow if our pillow blocks/plummer blocks are still in normal operating temperature.

RE: Pillow Block/ Plummer Block Thermography
Not that I know of, however you can establish your own. Depending on the range of factors like ambient temperature by the time of measurement, Pillow block size, type of lubricant used, heating pattern (gradient) etc.

After some years (say 3) of experimenting this, you should be able to understand expected bearing temperatures for your plummer blocks in winter, summer, fall etc. At our plant for example anything above 90 Deg. C, would trigger a thorough investigation.

Are you looking for a standard as a guide to give you warning before failure or? If yes Vibration analysis will do a hell of a pretty job in that case.
