Case Study: Timken Smashes Downtime And Costs For Aggregate And Concrete Company

The Challenge

Coarse, fine aggregate plus water leads to build-up.
These are some of the harsh conditions an aggregate and ready mix concrete company faces with its conveyors.
A competitor’s bearings on the conveyors failed prematurely. It forced the company to stop its processes to repair and replace the bearings, causing unexpected downtime and extra costs.

The Solution

A Timken distributor recommended Timken® Type E tapered roller bearing housed units and spherical roller bearing solid-block housed units with end cover options to replace the competitor’s products.

Type E Tapered Roller Bearing Housed Unit

A new standard in performance, Timken Type E tapered roller bearing housed units are ideal for fixed positions, withstanding the most demanding conditions with less downtime and maintenance.
