What's new


We see many pumps come through our doors with bearing failure. The question always asked is: why did it happen and what can be done to prevent future failures?

Most bearing failures are not caused by a bearing manufacturer defect. The most common reasons for bearing problems are a lack of lubrication or the use of contaminated lubrication - and not the type of lubrication.


Prevent Bearing Failure in Liquid Ring Vacuum Pumps and Compressors

Did you know most bearing failures are not caused by manufacturer's defect? From not enough grease to too much grease, or improper repairs by an unauthorized shop - our service technicians have seen it all. 

Regardless of the cause, bearing failure puts your operation at risk for unscheduled downtime and repairs.
