“I was with a customer in the mussel industry recently and we inspected all the Extreme Bearings in his factory by opening up the end caps,” says Jaap. “There was absolutely nothing wrong with the bearings after one year so we closed them up again and they can go on working for another year before the next inspection is due.”
“The mussel industry has the worst conditions you can find for a bearing,” comments Jaap. “You can’t get worse than this: cracked shells, sand and the presence of salt water. If the bearing works here, I believe it will work anywhere. This industry is as hard as it gets!”
The Extreme Bearing began to be used in the mussel industry and now it is finding a niche for itself in many other applications with extreme conditions.
