Action Bearing, a Boston-based bearing company catering to OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturers) and MRO (Maintenance, Repair and Operations) markets throughout New England, has announced a Power Generation Division dedicated to accommodating the unique bearing and related product needs of utilities.
Action Bearing’s Power Generation clients include Coal and Gas fired Electric utilities. Rick Piracini, Marketing Specialist and industry expert at Action Bearing, oversees this new division and assists clients in determining which bearing technologies would be most suitable by taking into consideration the specifications, recommendations, maintenance strategies, fatigue life and wear resistance of the bearing in relation to the application.
Power generation requires uninterrupted bearing service. Action’s 24/7 service and inventory are critical to the operations of utility clients. The ball and roller bearings for the pumps, compressors, electric motors and drives must meet critical internal clearances, cage designs and Abec precision class. Action’s inventory includes Split Bearing Pillow Blocks, Cylindrical Roller Bearings, Ball Bearings, Type E Pillow Blocks, M2000 Pillow Blocks, Oil Seals and Isolator Seals, Spherical Roller Bearings, Cylindrical Roller Bearings and Spherical Bushings.
Pillow Block bearings have to be a design that allows for easy and prompt replacement. The company offers a special solution to utilities – the Craft Split Roller block which allows for rapid replacement, and ultimately saves on downtime and costs. Action Bearing also recommends high end lubricants such as Kluber or Lubriplate for critical locations to better match lubricant service life to bearing B 10 life ratings. Both Inch and Metric shaft variations are available for next day delivery.
As part of their customer care, Action Bearing’s industry experts provide clients with the unique service of “Bearing Failure Analysis” which helps them determine the cause of bearing failure so that they may prevent future failure and predict reliability. Or, if clients desire to do so, they can utilize the Bearing Failure Analysis program within the Technical Toolbox on the Action Bearing website.
