RPB Bearing With Contact Seal Solution

An aggregate producer was plagued with downtime of competitor’s SAF 22517 bearings. These bearings failed in just three weeks due to contamination with abrasive slurry. Average bearing life: three weeks.

Sealmaster® Bearings Solution

The bearings were replaced with Sealmaster RPB bearings with contact seals, which allow for up to +/− 3 degrees of static shaft misalignment while maintaining seal integrity. The wet, abrasive contaminants were kept out of the bearing chamber.

APPLICATION

Transfer conveyors for “wet fines.”

SOLUTION TYPE

Cost savings through increased uptime, reduced maintenance and replacement costs.

PRODUCT/PART DESCRIPTION

RPB 207-C2 

 

Key Customer Need(s) and Benefits From Sealmaster® Products

After five weeks on the job, Sealmaster RPB bearings have handled this application well and shown no sign of issues. The RPB contact seal resists ingress from wet, abrasive contaminants much better than competitor’s labyrinth seal. Uptime for the conveyor significantly improved, saving the plant over $50,000 in maintenance labor and replacement part costs!
