Bearing Repair

For large or hard-to-find bearings, repair or reclamation is often a cost effective and time savings alternative to buying new products.

 Candidates for repair or reclamation would include:

  • Large quantities of the same size bearings (i.e. steel mill roll out tables)
  • Obsolete bearing
  • Large bearings over 12" bore
  • Expensive bearings over $2000

The repair process consists of:

  • Shipping bearing(s) to repair center (customer's expense)
  • Inspection - free of charge or if a charge, waived if bearing is repaired
    • Assessment of damage
    • Determination of class of repair
      • Replacement of rolling elements
      • Refinishing the raceways
      • Replacing components - cage or races
  • Estimate of price for repair and lead time
  • Repair bearing(s)
  • Return repaired bearing(s) to customer

For large quantities of the same size bearings, we can provide a bearing reclamation process. The bearings are degreased, inspected for wear or spalls, tumbled with polishing media, and reoiled.
 
Both repaired and reclaimed bearings have the same warranty as new (typically one year) on the material and workmanship.
 
For certain circumstances, bearing repair can be an economical way to reduce your cost and get more life from your bearings.
