An international drink producer had repeated problems with mounted-unit inserts failing prematurely. Cleaning the equipment with water and chemicals was destroying the bearing seals and washing out grease. As a result, the mounted-unit inserts had to be replaced every 5 to 6 months and re-greased every 3 weeks. NSK was asked to find a solution in order to improve bearing service life.
