Reliability Goes Green for Rotating Equipment

Sept. 30, 2010
Bearing maintenance tools enhance sustainability with rotating equipment -- Four innovations can help you meet sustainability goals.

Energy-conserving rotating equipment components and advanced maintenance technologies can help an enterprise meet its environmental objectives and achieve greater overall sustainability. Benefits include more efficient use of energy and raw materials, reduced waste in manufacturing processes, minimized environmental assaults, and reduced carbon and other emissions.

Plant managers, maintenance professionals and others charged with improving sustainability have a greater range of options available than ever before. These include rolling bearings and bearing units that are optimized for low-friction, energy-conserving operation, highly accurate lubricant-dispensing systems and laser-equipped alignment instruments.

Ultra-efficient rotating components
Shaft bearings directly affect a plant’s productivity, energy use and overall sustainability. As more attention has focused on sustainability during the past decade, technical innovations result in new generations of highly efficient rolling bearings.
