Emerson Bearing Boston Finds New Niche in Metal Shredding

Emerson Bearing, Boston’s leading bearing company catering toOEM (Original Equipment Manufacturers) and MRO (Maintenance, Repair and Operations) markets around the world, has found a new niche in the metal shredding industry.

A member of the Institute of Scrap Recycling Industries (ISRI), Emerson Bearing provides bearings for industrial metal shredding machines. These machines can shred heavy duty metal waste such as automobiles as well as doors and windows, drums, guns and brass cartridges, copper scrap, white goods, baled aluminum, scrap/trim, pails/buckets and more. Emerson Bearing typically receives bearing orders between $5K and $10K.

Emerson Bearing is one of the only providers of the hydraulic adapter sleeve and nut that has the capability to push a 500 pound bearing up the shaft of a metal shredder.

Emerson Bearing’s Metal Recycling division, which is led by marketing specialist Richard Furtado, is trained to accommodate the unique needs of clients in the metal shredding industry. Emerson’s 24/7 service and inventory are critical to the operations of many of their clients. Emerson can determine which bearing technologies would be most suitable for application by taking into consideration the specifications, recommendations, maintenance strategies, fatigue life and wear resistance of the bearing.

Metal shredding requires bearings that have high load values, can endure high shock loads and have extended maintenance cycles. Emerson offers a complete line of split cylindrical and spherical roller bearings which have the added feature of being easily assembled around a shaft. The complete assembly is engineered in halves to ease installation, inspection and replacement of bearings without removing or disrupting other elements of the drive or shaft system. Other related products offered include mounted units, ball bearings, roller bearings, roller chains, hydraulic cylinders and pumps, belts, oil seals, spherical bushings and rod ends.

Failure Analysis

As part of their customer care, Emerson’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 Emerson Bearing website.
