with the following: -
(a) 3 bearings out of the first batch of 10 bearings produced.
(b) 1 bearing out of each subsequent batch of 10 bearings.
However, if there are less than 6 bearings of one type, all bearings of that
type shall be load tested. Each bearing code number given in the Drawings
shall be considered as a bearing type.

Routine tests for each bearing shall include: Tests to be Done


1.Vertical load test a. Vertical Load Test
The bearing shall be loaded in compression to 1.2 times the maximum b.Test for
vertical SLS load given in the Drawings. The load shall be maintained for a Coeffcient of Friction
minimum of three minutes. c.Lateral Load Test
d.Test for Rotation
2.Test for Coeffcient of Friction
The coefficient of friction of the sliding surfaces of the bearing shall be
determined by test. The value of the coefficient of friction shall be taken as
the average result of five tests and shall be determined for both the
maximum and 50% of the maximum vertical SLS load given in the
Drawings. The sliding surfaces shall not be lubricated before the tests but
the bearings may be given two preliminary sliding runs under load prior to
taking the test readings.
