Sealmaster® PN Gold™ Mounted Bearings Decrease Downtime

A large bakery routinely experienced nuisance maintenance due to bearing failures from contamination (flour, water, cleaning solution, etc.) ingress into the bearing past the seal on their conveyors. This created downtime and caused maintenance staff to regularly change out bearings. On the bun reversing conveyor, maintenance staff was changing bearings 2 or 3 times per month or ~ 26 times/year. Each change took up to 2 hours to replace the bearings at $30/ hr plus lost production revenue of $600/ hr. After switching to Sealmaster PN Gold mounted ball bearings with a patented high performance triple lip contact seal and Skwezloc® locking collar, the plant is saving ~$33,000 per year.
