A quarry in Central America was experiencing bearing failures every 6 months on its vibrating screens. This equipment is critical, since each failure represents 24 hours of production downtime. Because of this, NSK evaluated the failure conditions and recommended, based on these findings, VS series bearings made of HTF (High-Tough) steel, designed to withstand the most severe operating conditions under load, lubrication and contamination.
