Bearing protector uses magnet seal technology
AESSEAL has launched the MagTecta-S bearing protector which uses proprietary magnet seal technology and is said to be able to eliminate over half of all bearing failures.
Bearing failures account for more than 20% of all pump and other rotating equipment breakdowns, and in more than half of those the root cause is contamination of the bearing oil, typically the result of inefficient lip seals.
Magnetically energised contacting faces and proven oil retention technology protects against the loss of bearing oil and the ingress of harmful liquids, moisture and particles. The MagTecta-S is non-shaft-wearing and requires no routine maintenance, resulting in reduced operating costs.
