A premium snack processing company was experiencing frequent bearing failures on a potato wash application causing significant downtime and reduced production. NSK carried out a bearing failure analysis revealing ingress of contamination
leading to significant reduction in life time. NSK was asked to find a solution to this problem in order to improve service life. A trial was agreed which resulted in an increase of bearing life by 2 times.
