BOSTON, MASSACHUSETTS (February 11, 014)… Action Bearing, a Boston based bearing company catering to OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturers) and MRO (Maintenance, Repair and Operations) markets throughout the world, recently launched a new division to supply bearings and related products to the wastewater treatment industry. “When you talk about wastewater treatment plants, in many cases, you are talking about facilities that are built, operated and maintained with taxpayer dollars. So keeping these plants running smoothly and efficiently depends greatly on using the right parts and timely replacement of those parts,” said Steve Katz, president of Emerson Bearing, Inc. “With this new division, we can provide the support to wastewater treatment facilities they need to make the best selection of ball bearings to keep things running smoothly.”

To keep pumps, drives and valves in a water treatment plant working efficiently 24/7 requires bearings and chains of the highest standard. Action Bearing’s offerings include chrome, stainless steel and engineered thermoplastic components. Worldwide sourcing provides products at several price points.

In addition to standard products, related and specialty products to improve efficiency for bearing replacement at wastewater treatment plants are available. For example, Action Bearing sells the Craft Split Roller pillow block, which allows for rapid replacement, reducing downtime and costs.

As part of the new division, wastewater treatment customers have access to industry specialists for recommendations on the right bearing. Action Bearing Marketing Specialist Mike Quinn is responsible for the Wastewater Treatment division. He can be reached by e-mail at or by calling 1.800.225.4587.
