Case Study: FLOOD-GARD™ Bearing Isolator- Mining

A large amount of airborne granite dust led to shaft grooving on the primary conveyor gearbox at a large quarry in the Southeastern United States. The lip seals that came installed on the gearbox from the original equipment manufacturer collected granite dust and other contaminates under their sealing lip surface, leading to shaft grooving, leakage and eventually a costly rebuild.
