Roll-Kraft Solves the Problem of Why Bearings Require Replacement at a High Rate: Tube and Pipe Solutions Forum, Vol. 3

Share Article

Roll-Kraft announces the release of the Tube and Pipe Solutions Forum, Volume 3, with information regarding how to save time and money by properly preloading tapered roller bearings.

A new issue of the Solutions Forum is now available on the Roll-Kraft web site. This issue identifies reasons and detailed solutions to tube and pipe companies who find themselves having to replace bearings more often than expected.

To avoid this high replacement rate, it is very important to have the bearings properly preloaded. An excessive preload will result in premature bearing failure. An insufficient preload will result in loose bearings, which in turn will affect the alignment of any mill.

The full article on this subject details how a company can properly preload tapered roller bearings to avoid the issues described above.
