Excessive moisture and contamination

Washing, sorting, grading, peeling, separating and blending applications require large amounts of water or other liquids. The resulting high humidity levels, along with caustic cleaning agents and contaminants, can breach bearing seals and cause corrosion issues. Lubricant loss and bearing failure often follows, causing increased maintenance and worker safety risks.

Tight production timelines

Many raw materials arrive during limited seasonal timeframes, so they must be processed as quickly as possible. Operating parameters of these assets are pushed to the limit, accelerating wear and risk of unplanned downtime.

Check out how re-lubrication free bearing solutions, manual or automated maintenance solutions can help you reduce unplanned downtime and maintenance costs.
