The canning industry presents an extremely arduous environment for bearings. All phases of can forming, shaping and seaming rely on rolling element bearings for continued accuracy and speed of process. In addition to aggressive media and harsh cleaning processes, bearing lubricants must also comply with environmental (FDA) guidelines that require the use of thin organic based oils offering only marginal lubrication characteristics for the majority of the operation. Barden bearings demonstrate enhanced performance and reliability in this environment by combining the material properties of advanced corrosion resistant steels with those of ceramic balls.
