Benefits of bearing remanufacturing
Challenge: Addressing worn bearings with a short lead time

When the lead time for replacing six worn pulverizer roll wheel bearings was longer than a 1,000 MW coal-fired power station required, SKF bearing remanufacturing was the solution. SKF remanufactured the bearings in six weeks (compared to seven months of lead time that a new bearing set required). In addition to the timely return to service, remanufacturing saved the plant almost $7,500 in bearing purchases and related costs, plus five months of potential reduced power production worth more than $1.2 million in lost revenue. Remanufacturing can often serve as a timely, practical and cost-effective alternative to replacing a failing or failed bearing.
