How to eliminate 20.8% of all rotating equipment failures?

A major study into equipment reliability has shown 52% of bearing failures are caused by bearing oil, contamination and these failures account for 20.8% of all rotating equipment failure. LabTecta®66 with its dynamic lift technology helps eliminate these issues. This dynamic lift technology, allows the equipment to breathe when running, but is perfectly sealed when the equipment is stationary, preventing contamination of the bearing oil.

Since the launch of the LabTecta®66 range in 2006, there have been no failures that can be attributed to the design or functionality of the product. A recent research study has concluded that the LabTecta®66 bearing protection seal can effectively be classed as having an infinite lifespan. Not only significantly reducing downtime due to bearing failure, but offering the opportunity to increase the period between maintenance windows further reducing maintenance costs.
