Bearings “make the world go around” and are associated with such desirable process descriptions as faster, trouble-free, long-life, and more productivity. The importance of bearings in any piece of equipment can be measured by extended equipment life and low maintenance requirements among other variables. Water treating applications represent a challenging environment for bearings in that they are full-time operations, high load, and can contain high amounts of abrasive grit.
JMS has been supplying paddle wheel flocculators since 1962, and over the years has seen the evolution in materials of construction for bearing housings and liners. JMS has taken a leadership role in pioneering manufacturing methods, design, and materials of construction to enhance the performance and life of the bearings used in their Mega-FLOCS (Paddle Wheel Flocculators).
After much research, JMS is introducing the new Mega-BEARING (High Performance Bearing System). This multiple component system combines all the best of technology and materials of construction maximizing bearing and resulting equipment life.
