Bearings for pumps
The most common cause of pump bearing failure is not fatigue
Thrust bearings for centrifugal pumps rarely achieve the theoretical life specified by API and ANSI standards. This is because pump bearings usually fail from causes other than fatigue:
- Static vibration
- Insufficient loading
- Excessive thrust
- Inadequate/ineffective lubrication
MRC offers the widest selection of ball bearings for pumps in the bearing industry. A solution exists for nearly every combination of loads and speeds.
