Bearing Switch Yields Maintenance Savings

A major food manufacturer was using 15 bearings per quarter on a filling line. Each bearing took half an hour to replace. Fully loaded maintenance cost was estimated at $250/hour. 

BDI recommended changeover to the RBC ATF-10-T8. Although it is nearly 50% more expensive, the RBC ATF-10 required only 12 replacements annually.
