Rail Transportation: An Industry Overview
Railroads are the oldest form of mechanized transport and one of the original “big businesses” of...
Bearing lubrication is the number one cause of bearing failure. And greaseless, self-lubricating plastic bearings are the number one solution to ending lubrication failure.
Without the right level of lubrication, bearings can overheat and wear prematurely, which can significantly increase your maintenance and replacement costs. Failure can result from using the wrong lubricant, applying it insufficiently, or even a total breakdown of grease. Excess grease also attracts dust and other contaminants which reduce the service lifetime of metal bearings.
Put an end to bearing lubrications failure with greaseless plastic bearings. They run dry to reduce maintenance costs and improve equipment uptime.
