Cement and Mining


Harsh operating and market conditions

Abrasive dust and dirt. Extreme temperatures and more. These conditions make it difficult, even dangerous for mines and cement plants to maintain their machinery. Worker injuries and unplanned downtime are a constant risk.

Additionally, high cost and stringent regulations are forcing reductions in energy consumption, even as global demand for metal ores, cement and coal is increasing.

Crushers bearings

Shock loads and high vibration take their toll
Reducing tons of massive raw materials to useable product takes a heavy toll on bearings, seals and other crusher components.
Shock loads and high vibration, plus exposure to dust, dirt and the elements can lead to bearing overload, contamination and lubricant loss. Eventually, premature failures, costly shutdowns and lost productivity follow.

Vibrating screens bearings

The high cost of vibration and contamination
Along with regular exposure to the elements and abrasive dust, vibrating screens experience high vibration and heavy loads. Frequent component failures result – a condition many operators simply consider a cost of doing business.
If screen failures are catastrophic, damage to shafts and other components can drive repairs, downtime and costs. For equipment manufacturers, warranty and relationship issues are a concern.
