BSA releases new Bearing Brief on green technology

Glen Ellyn, IL — Responding to the mounting commitment of business and consumers to sustainable technologies, the Bearing Specialists Association (BSA) has released a new addition to its growing body of single-topic Bearing Briefs, The Best-Kept Secret in “Green” Technology. Developed by BSA’s Educational Services Committee, The Best-Kept Secret in “Green” Technology details the many ways in which bearings contribute to a greener planet.

The Best Kept Secret in “Green” Technology points out the bearing industry is constantly developing bearings that operate at higher speeds, generate less friction (and therefore less energy consumption), support heavier loads, last longer, use environmentally friendly lubricants, and cost less throughout their service life. In short, the bearing industry is making the most of existing machines while reducing their impact on the environment. Equally important, the bearing industry also helps users and engineers balance bearing features to achieve optimum machine performance.

The latest Bearing Brief is available for free download from Tools You Can Use on the BSA website It’s the latest in a series of more than 20 free, single-topic user bulletins designed to deliver expertise to meet the needs of the end user as well as bearing industry professionals.
