Haldor Topsoe: Bearing lifetime increased by a factor of 13
- Bearings for contaminated environments
- Simplified maintenance
- 13 times longer lifetime than steel bearings
- Total savings of over 5,300 EUR in the first year
The grinding machine is a key component in Haldor Topsoe’s production. In order to avoid breakdown traditional steel bearings were replaced every 3-4 weeks, as part of a preventive maintenance strategy. Based on an analysis of the worn-out steel bearings CeramicSpeed suggested implementing CeramicSpeed LongLife Xtreme Bearings.
The CeramicSpeed Bearings were first replaced after 13 months, an increase in lifetime of 13 times!
The price of a set of CeramicSpeed Bearings was 800 EUR higher than a set of traditional steel bearings. Within the first year alone the company saved a total of 5,300 EUR.
