Piracini to Lead Power Generation Division at Emerson Bearing Boston New Division, Special Solutions for Utilities

BOSTON, MA… Emerson Bearing Boston, providers of bearing and related products for OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturers) and MRO (Maintenance, Repair and Operations) markets around the globe, has announced a Power Generation Division dedicated to accommodating the unique bearing needs of utilities.

Emerson Bearing Boston’s Power Generation clients include Coal and Gas fired Electric utilities stretching from the Northeast to Guam, Bermuda and the Caribbean. Rick Piracini, Marketing Specialist and industry expert at Emerson Bearing Boston, oversees this new division and assists clients in determining which bearing technologies would be most suitable by taking into consideration the specifications, recommendations, maintenance strategies, fatigue life and wear resistance of the bearing in relation to the application.

Power generation requires uninterrupted bearing service. Emerson’s 24/7 service and inventory are critical to the operations of utility clients. The ball and roller bearings for the pumps, compressors, electric motors and drives must meet critical internal clearances, cage designs and Abec precision class. Emerson’s inventory includes Split Bearing Pillow Blocks, Cylindrical Roller Bearings, Ball Bearings, Type E Pillow Blocks, M2000 Pillow Blocks, Oil Seals and Isolator Seals, Spherical Roller Bearings, Cylindrical Roller Bearings and Spherical Bushings.

Pillow Block bearings have to be a design that allows for easy and prompt replacement. The company offers a special solution to utilities – the Craft Split Roller block, which allows for rapid replacement, and ultimately saves on downtime and costs. Emerson Bearing Boston also recommends high-end lubricants such as Kluber or Lubriplate for critical locations to better match lubricant service life to bearing B 10 life ratings. Both Inch and Metric shaft variations are available for next day delivery.

Bearing Failure Analysis

As part of their customer care, Emerson Bearing Boston offers the unique service of “Bearing Failure Analysis” which helps them determine the cause of bearing failure so that they may prevent future failure and predict reliability. Or, if clients desire to do so, they can utilize the Bearing Failure Analysis program within the Technical Toolbox on the Emerson Bearing website.
