The article "Best Practices for Bearing Protection" appeared in the June 2014 issue of Power Transmission Engineering.

Summary
For either brand-new motors or those already in service, "best practices" means that informed technicians can make use of the latest diagnostic techniques (vibration analysis, thermography, shaft-voltage testing, etc.) to prevent electrical bearing damage -- either at the very beginning or very quickly thereafter. If done correctly, the work need only be done once.
