The correct sealing can reduce the 14% of your bearing failures, which occur prematurely due to contamination.
Even tiny amounts of contamination can adversely effect the operating life of your bearings. Particles much smaller than a human hair can break down the lubricant film between the rolling elements and the raceway leading to metal to metal contact.
Many of the premature failures resulting from contamination are due to inadequate sealing arrangements as much as they are related to harsh operating environments.
With our own sealing division specialising in the design and manufacture of seals, our engineers are uniquely placed to develop solutions that exactly suit your application requirements.
In some applications even with the best sealing it is difficult to keep your bearings completely free of contamination. ERIKS can select the best products to cope with your conditions however challenging.
ERIKS has unrivalled experience in the area of bearing sealing to prevent ingress failures and ensure lubrication retention. The correct sealing can reduce the 14% of your bearing failures, which occur prematurely due to contamination. Our Sealing Technology division can assist in the sealing design, manufacture or sourcing, and fitting of sealing arrangements offering offer not only standard seals but also specialist solutions through our own custom design and manufacturing facilities.
