Industrial fans are integral components of many industrial plants, particularly Steel plants, power plants, paper and printing, automotive, Air conditioning, petro chemical plants. Fans are normally mounted in bearing-housing assembly, where fan failure can cause expensive unscheduled plant shutdowns. Early detection of faults in these systems allows the user to initiate repairs and it can prevent costly maintenance. Fan problems result from impeller unbalance, misalignment of shafts, cracks, resonance, looseness, bearing problems etc in this paper, fault detection techniques which are based on vibration signals that are acquired from accelerometers, are proposed. Bearing fault detection is conducted by signal processing methods, based on the vibration signature of the rolling elements of bearings. In addition, infrared Theromgraphy technique is proposed as an integrated condition monitoring system with the existing monitoring system to increase the performance of fault detection and to know the degradation of bearings and also theoretical and numerical analysis of the heat conduction process of the bearing to its housing is presented and discussed.
