SmartLUBE Delivers for Midwest Bakery

A Chicago-area commercial bakery was replacing the tray support bearings in its ovens on a reactionary basis. Their weekly inspection cycle was resulting in two mechanics spending an average of 20 labor hours per week to replace failed bearings. The premature bearing failures were caused by a combination of the high heat and humidity in the ovens, resulting in lubrication failure and contamination.

The attached document describes BDI's recommendation that was able to extend the bearing life and provide an annual cost savings of almost $250K per oven.
