NSK Mining and Construction Success Story
A customer was experiencing constant bearing failure within an autoclave bogie wheel assembly, using deep groove ball bearings. The failures resulted in damage of surrounding hardware (housings and axles) and high labor and parts cost, as components needed frequent replacement. NSK Engineers examined the application and determined that ingress of hard particulates and moisture, combined with excessive load was the root cause of premature bearing failure.
