An international drinks producer had repeated problems with mounted-unit inserts failing prematurely. Cleaning the equipment with water and chemicals was destroying the bearing seals and washing out the grease pack. As a result, the mounted-unit inserts had to be replaced every 5 to 6 months and re-greased every 3 weeks. NSK was asked to find a solution to this problem in order to improve the service life.
