means you can be sure we understand mining processes and will utilize our technical expertise to develop solutions to meet your most demanding requirements.  

Extreme Operating Conditions

Standard Miether are hard at work within a variety of mining segments, including cement, aggregates, primary metals, precious metals, minerals, and coal. The facilities connected with the extraction and processing of these products are typically found in remote locations, where extreme climate conditions, dust, debris, and other contaminates can seriously hinder bearing performance.  Our custom housing designs, sealing configurations, and assemblies provide fundamental solutions in an effort to improve mining productivity, reduce maintenance down time, maintain the highest degree of safety, lower costs, and protect the environment.

Benefits include:

IMPROVE PRODUCTIVITY AND REDUCE DOWNTIME

  • Material weight/mass content allows for extended life cycles
  • SAF series “Flat Top” design with screwdriver pry slots to assist with cap removal
  • Compact design to accommodate reduced footprint dimension
  • Sealing technologies that retain lubricant internal to the bearing assembly and exclude foreign debris from entering the housing

MAINTAIN SAFETY

  • Special “safety colors” available to identify rotational moving equipment
  • Sealing technology to manage excessive lubricant on adjacent working surfaces

LOWER COSTS

  • Advanced sealing technology keeps contaminants from prematurely damaging bearing assemblies and shafts while reducing  lubricant usage
  • Compatible industry interchangeability standards using a common nomenclature for mounting and shaft center heights
  • Designs to minimize radial and shock loading situations

REDUCE ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT

  • Repair program
  • Significant cost reduction
  • Extends bearing housing life
  • Reduced lead times vs. new
  • Ability to make changes/upgrades to enhance life cycle

 

Tough Applications Require the Right Solutions

MINING ENVIRONMENTS

Hoisting:

When hoisting personnel, ore, and machinery, Standard Miether bearing housings, seals, and accessories can maintain operational integrity.

Crushing:

Whether in the primary or secondary stage using, jaw, roller, impact, gyratory/cone methods these processes are exposed to severe loading, vibration and shock conditions, Standard Miether products are a natural choice.

Screening/Sizing:

You’ll also find Miether products hard at work during the screening and sizing process. Whether vibratory or drum, these machines work at medium to high rotational speeds and can be prone to excessive radial loading. Miether understands that maintaining dependable uptime is critical to the success of this extreme process, and has the products that deliver.

Grinding:

As horizontal and vertical grinding mills rotate, tumble, and move violently they are subject to heavy loads, and severe contamination.  Miether Bearing products are ideal for  trunnion and pinion assemblies.

Material Handling/Conveyors:

The process of conveying materials throughout the mine site exposes critical bearing components to many extreme conditions.  Conveyor systems including,  belt, portable, overland, and at-the-face mining conveyors are where Standard Miether plays an important role in maintaining production while minimizing maintenance and downtime issues.

Kilns:

Kilns are some of the largest rotational machines found in a production facility. This pyro processing process  exposes components to high temperatures and a variety of airborne contaminates. Miether understands that maintaining dependable uptime is critical to the success of this important process, and has the products that deliver. 

Coal Preparation:

Coal preparation processes including:  washing, screening, crushing, separation and dewatering  expose production equipment to an assortment of challenging environments. Trust Miether to provide the products and protection you need.

SOLUTIONS

  • Heavy duty SAF, SAFS, SDAF and SDAFS pillow block housings, as well as solid MMW pillow block housings with sizes ranging from 3” to 20+” shaft diameters are able to withstand loading, vibration and shock conditions, protect bearings, and maximize uptime
  • FCL and FCS piloted flange cartridge bearing housing designs ranging from 3” to 12” incorporate reduced mounting dimensions and eliminate shear effect
  • Seal designs for extended life cycles, including traditional labyrinth (LER), O-ring contact (LER-O-ring), V-ring, double lip, triple lip, traditional taconite, special taconite triple seal designs, and Miether’s  patent pending Protector® seals.
  • Adapter assemblies that simplify installation. Bearing adapter assemblies are available in fractional (inch) and metric sizes, as well as in mechanical and hydraulic fitted designs.
