Clean steel and highly developed bearing geometry enable Timken® bearings to withstand the effects of moderate debris environments. For more severe debris environments, Timken offers debris-resistant bearings.
Before selecting a bearing for a high-debris application, our engineers apply computer-based analysis tools. We model the severity of the application through a microscopic review of the dents and other debris damage on a bearing¡¯s raceway surface. This visual data combined with our analysis techniques give us the information needed to choose the appropriate debris-resistant bearing solution.
In dusty, dirty, debris-filled environments, engineers need to select bearings that are up to the task. Where clean conditions aren’t possible, but bearing failure isn’t an option, Timken's debris-resistant bearings are the right choice. Debris Analysis
When designers can’t shield their bearings from debris, they need to select bearings able to resist the potential wear and damage. But how severe is the debris, and what level of debris resistance is required? Those questions can be answered with Timken debris analysis services.
