Kaydon Bearings bearing life testing

Bearings are run to failure, using accelerated speeds and loads and continuous vibration monitoring. Bearing life testing confirms that any changes to components, materials, or manufacturing process won't negatively impact the bearing's characteristics. Kaydon bearing life ratings are not just theoretical computations, like those cited by other manufacturers; they have been proven in exhaustive testing.

Weibull plots are used to compute L10 life and to estimate life for bearings that don't make it to failure.
