Ball bearings and inserts
Manufacturer was expected to meet warranty period with equipment, and to eliminate the need for manual greasing. Warranty period could not be met without manual greasing.
With MicroPoly filled bearings, manufacturer can now meet the warranty period without manual greasing.
Virtually every bearing type used is filled with MicroPoly
Inadequate time was allocated for manual maintenance of equipment. Contamination existed, such as coolant, metal chips, etc. Due to labor reductions in the plants and the difficulty in lubricating certain bearings, bearings were not being lubricated as required, minimizing bearing life.
MicroPoly is successfully being incorporated into the specifications of machine tool and automation design/construction, thus eliminating the need for manual greasing.
Tapered roller bearings, ball bearings, and cam followers
Manufacturer was expected to meet extended warranty period with equipment, and to eliminate the need for manual greasing. On some applications, manufacturer was not able to meet warranty period without manual greasing.
With MicroPoly, manufacturer can now meet the warranty period without annual greasing.
Conveyor chain lubrication with MicroPoly block
Either no lubrication was used, with a short chain life experienced, or manual greasing was required. The alternative was to provide an expensive automatic lubrication system that tended to drip, creating housekeeping and safety problems.
By using MicroPoly, the housekeeping and safety problems were eliminated, with no manual greasing requirements.
Tapered roller bearings
Manufacturer is expected to meet 3-year warranty. Customers were required to manually grease the bearings during the warranty period. This was not being done and the manufacturer was receiving warranty claims.
MicroPoly filled bearings are lasting through the required warranty period. No manual greasing is required. Warranty claims due to lack of lubrication have been eliminated.
Bronze bushings plugged with MicroPoly
Graphite plugs had been incorporated into bronze bushings, but were not compatible with the coolant. With graphite, the bushings had to wear out to plate out fresh graphite, and were failing prematurely. The warranty period could not be met.
With MicroPoly plugs, manufacturer can now meet the warranty period.
Tapered roller thrust bearings
Due to exposure to severe road conditions, dirt, water, and road salt contaminate the bearings. Warranty requirements on bearings were not being met. Bearings were very difficult to maintain.
Over 150,000 of these bearings have been filled with MicroPoly over an 8 year period, with no failures reported. Warranty requirements are being met.
6203 and 6205, single row ball bearings
Abrasive tissue paper and dust contaminate the bearings, causing premature failure. Bearing life 1 month.
MicroPoly kept the contamination out of bearings. Bearing life extended to 1 year.
