Heavy loads and contamination require heavy duty protection. Given that mining and quarrying are among the toughest of industrial environments, dust and water contamination and shock loading posing a real threat to plant and machinery, Mario Borsella, Manager, Field Services Engineering Group, NTN Bearing Corporation of Canada, will discuss how bearings can be protected to enhance machine life and reliability. This discussion will spotlight bearing solutions for conveyors and will provide an overview of the common failure modes associated with bearings used on conveyor applications. Mario will discuss how to implement bearing best maintenance practices to avoid costly bearing failures.Speaker:
