Sealmaster® Brewery Solution

A large brewery was experiencing unplanned downtime and lost production due to unforeseen bearing failure. Typical bearing life was less than six months. It was determined bearings were failing due to corrosion and excessive relubrication.

® Solution

Sealmaster reduced maintenance PN Gold bearings with stainless steel housings, bolt on end caps and back side shields were recommended to replace the current bearing design. Sealmaster reduced maintenance PN Gold bearings, with tapered lands for improved oil flow into the ball path, have a phosphorous nickel coated raceway to help prevent corrosion and a high performance triple lip seal to prevent water from entering the bearing. These reduced maintenance bearings do not require any re-lubrication.
