Do your plant’s motors experience significant downtime and/or frequent failure due to bearing issues?
Less than 9% of bearings reach their life expectancy, according to the American Bearing Manufacturers Association. The majority of bearing failures (64%) are actually caused by poor lubrication and are preventable with the right choices and planning.
The following customer success story from A.W. Chesterton Company illustrates how a simple upgrade in grease quality and application can have an enormous payoff in uptime and cost savings.
One of A.W. Chesterton Company’s customers was replacing 24-30 electric motors per year at a cost of $5,000-$27,500 USD each.
The motors were constantly subjected to dust, heat, water, and aggressive chemicals. Bearing failure was common.
