Bearings are precision components that require clean lubrication in adequate amounts to ensure a long, trouble-free life.

After 30 years of research, an engineering team in Japan has developed a hybrid-type submersible bearing that prevents burnouts during vertical pump dry-starts, exploits the elasticity of the synt

One of the largest electric power generation companies in the U.S. conducted an upgrade project of their water pumps at their nuclear plant facility.

Bearings are precision components that require consistent, clean lubrication to ensure long, reliable equipment life.

Market forces and increasing regulatory demands have exerted considerable pressures on pulp and paper operations.

In modern industry, hundreds of millions of horizontal process pumps move fluids. The larger of these, typically pumps in ranges above 500 kilowatts (kW), incorporate sliding bearings.

Some will know from their experience with automobiles that thicker oils, such as Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE) 30, are more appropriate for warm summer months.

Bearings are a vital component in the wastewater industry.

The Himalayan Mountains tower over some of the most rugged terrain and harshest climate conditions on the planet.

Minimizing pump downtime directly affects the bottom line.

For any bearing used in rotating machinery, applying best maintenance practices and using the correct enabling tools can help contribute to maximum bearing service life.

Many industries use variable frequency drives (VFDs) with induction motors.

Minimizing pump downtime directly affects the bottom line.

A multistage BB5 diffuser machine in oil transfer service in the Middle East had been in operation for many years without problems.

Within the oil and gas industry, the rotating shafts of equipment—such as pumps, motors, compressors, gearboxes and turbines—perform an essential function in both upstream and downstream applicati

Few industries can tolerate the unscheduled downtime of critical equipment. In refinery operations, it can have particularly serious implications.

Active magnetic bearing (AMB) reliability and availability levels have surpassed oil bearings after 10 years of technological advancements.

Bearing currents occur in specific motor and drive installations and can lead to motor fatigue and failure.
