A vegetable-processing company was experiencing repeated ball bearing failures on their transport systems. NSK was asked to investigate the problem and offer a solution. It was determined that a large amount of water was entering the bearings and washing out valuable grease. NSK suggested the use of sealed, corrosion-resistant Molded-Oil Bearings. This solution allowed grease to remain in the bearings and increase bearing life.
