    Leave a Comment

    We’ve launched a Power Generation Division dedicated to accommodating the unique bearing needs of utilities.


    Our Power Generation clients include Coal and Gas fired Electric utilities stretching from the Northeast to Guam, Bermuda and the Caribbean.

    Rick Piracini, our Marketing Specialist and industry expert, oversees this 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. Our 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. Our 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. We offer a special solution to utilities – the Craft Split Roller block, which allows for rapid replacement, and ultimately saves on downtime and costs.

    We also recommend high-end lubricants such as Kluber or Lubriplate for critical locations to better match lubricant service life to bearing B 10 life ratings.
