New Niche for Action Bearing Boston – Wastewater Treatment

Richard Furtado

Action Bearing of Boston, providers of bearings and related products for OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturers) and MRO (Maintenance, Repair and Operations) markets throughout New England, has found a new niche in Wastewater Treatment.

The company has formed a dedicated Wastewater Treatment division and it is led by Richard Furtado, a Senior Sales Expert who has been with Action Bearing Boston for three decades. In order to keep the pumps, drives and valves in a water treatment plant working efficiently 24/7, it requires bearings and chain of the highest standard. Action Bearing Boston offers a wide selection of chrome, stainless steel or engineered thermoplastic components, backed by 24 hour service, product knowledge and competitive pricing.

Unique solutions for this market that can be found at Action Bearing Boston include the Craft Split Roller pillow block which allows for rapid replacement and ultimately reduces downtime and costs. The company also recommends polymer lubes to increase bearing life.
