Q3. Can Bearings Be Refurbished?

 
 Yes, but it depends… Generally speaking, for small bearings it is uneconomical to attempt to refurbish a bearing product. However, for larger size bearings (6 inch bore and above) there potentially could be economic gains. In particular, bearings such as slewing rings, cylindrical roller bearings, and spherical roller bearings are candidates for refurbishing. But beyond the accumulated wear there are many other factors involved in this financial decision including maintenance cycles, lubrication, MTBF, environmental considerations and more.

If you have a specific bearing refurbishing question, consult with the engineers at AST.
