Looking at specific bearings for agricultural machinery

Looking at specific bearings for agricultural machinery
In agricultural machinery when a standard rolling bearing is installed the prospects of long service life are fairly poor.It is because of this, that most high-end OEMs in the agricultural industry rely on customer- and application-specific rolling bearings from NSK. NSK´s Agri Disc Hubs are filled with a special, high-performance grease that is capable of absorbing high pressure and therefore last throughout the useful life of the bearing.

Bus air-conditioning systems can be leak-free for years to come

Bus air-conditioning systems can be leak-free for years to come
Specifically for use in buses, Eaton has developed a new refrigerant hose, which sets itself apart due to its high temperature resistance and extremely low permeation rate. Most importantly, it offers the necessary flexibility to allow for the relative movement between the compressor and hoses when the engine starts. As a result, Daimler EvoBus could increase the lifetime of air conditioning hose assemblies in buses reducing their replacement cost over time.
