Bearing Refurbishment

Refurbishment is a well-established, cost effective and reliable process that can restore bearings to like-new conditions and significantly increase their overall service life.

Bearing Refurbishment Categories

Category 1 - Recertification


  • Suitable for unused, long-term and poorly stored Bearings
  • Inspect, report & quote
  • Clean up, wash & dry
  • Protect & package for storage (“Standard”, “Long Term”
  • or “Tropical” pack options)

Category 2 - Recondition


All “Category 1” work but also includes –

  • Repair of light/surface damage on raceways, rolling elements, cage & external surfaces
  • Measure & confirm radial internal clearance, OD & bore diameters

Category 3 - Remanufacture


  • All “Category 1 & 2” work but also includes grinding of raceways, manufacture of new roller sets & other components as required.

Did You Know?

Studies undertaken by leading manufacturers suggest that (for various reasons) less than 10% of industrial bearings reach their intended design life. If captured in time refurbishment can restore a bearing to like new conditions so that it can be confidently returned to service with little to no compromise to its ultimate design life.
