1. Correct mounting: Correct mounting is the first step to protect the bearing. Make sure you select the proper bearing type, the right amount of lubricant, and the correct mounting method. Follow the manufacturer's guidelines and recommendations to ensure that the bearing is properly installed and not over-pressurized or over-loosened. 

2. Keep them clean: Bearings should always be kept clean. Prevent dust, dirt, liquids or other contaminants from entering the bearing. Clean the bearings regularly and make sure the surrounding environment is clean to avoid any possible damage.

3. Proper lubrication: The proper amount of lubrication is essential to ensure that the bearings work properly. Use the proper lubricant and follow the manufacturer's recommendations for regular maintenance and lubrication. Check the quality and amount of lubricant regularly and add or replace as needed. 

4. Avoid overloading: Make sure the bearing does not exceed its rated load. Avoid bearings that are subjected to excessive weight or shock during operation. Select the correct bearing type and size to meet the requirements of the application.

5. Regular maintenance: Inspect and maintain bearings regularly, including cleaning, lubricating, tightening and checking for damage. Repair or replace any damaged bearings in a timely manner. 

6. Reasonable operating conditions: Ensure that the bearings operate under suitable operating conditions, including proper temperature, humidity and vibration levels. Avoid excessively high bearing temperatures, humid conditions and excessive vibration.
