Coarse and fine, water and build-up are the harsh conditions aggregate applications face with conveyors. Bearings unable to handle this harsh environment failed prematurely; forcing process stops to repair and replace bearings, causing unexpected and costly downtime.
Timken® Type E tapered roller bearing housed units with end cover options replaced the failing bearings resulting in a better performance for this environment and doubled the runtime.
Timken provides other power transmission product solutions for conveyors. Lovejoy flexible couplings are corrosion resistant, require no lubrication, lower maintenance and downtime costs, and reduce noise. From corrosive environments to heavy shock loads, Timken DRIVES® precision roller chains help to increase uptime and reduce maintenance costs.
Tested, proven and consistent Timken quality products are design and made for some of the toughest applications by a company of engineers and innovators.
