Electric Motor Bearing Housing Repair

Motor failures in all types of commercial and industrial machinery are commonly caused by the bearing. Incidences occur when the actual bearing begins to wear down, causing rough rotation and friction. Another frequent cause for machine breakdowns is the bearing housing has deteriorated, giving the bearing unwanted rotation. EM Quik Sleeves are specifically designed to revive worn down bearing houses and bring them back to industry standard tolerance. The installation of a new EM-Quick bearing housing sleeve will allow for the tight and proper seating of a bearing. The use of these prefabricated sleeves will save you both time and money on a complete system breakdown & the associated repair cost. Bartlett Bearing Company, Inc. is proud to offer an economic solution to repair worn, damaged and oversized housings.
