The ball bearing was found damaged by pitting corrosion. Compositional analysis on the corroded regions revealed presence of Na and Cl. On the other hand, the roller bearing was damaged due to ingression of foreign material like aluminium and also due to corrosion. The source of aluminium and Cl in the lubricant needs to be identified and corrective measures incorporated to prevent the recurrence of similar failure.
