A bearing is a sacrificial part that supports a moving load.
Severe service environments are ones in which a condition of the environment or application contributes to a premature failure of the bearing.
A change to EDT bearings in the right application can avoid frustration and lost productivity that many occur with bearings that are not as well suited to the conditions.
In many cases, the failure of the bearing is a result of a failure of the lubricant.
Many EDT bearings are grease-less. Where grease cannot be avoided, EDT has alternatives that may be more resilient to the environment than traditional bearings.
