Hey people,
I realize, that it is mainly a home beer brewing forum, but maybe somebody can help me.

We have a problem with the depallletizer on the bottling line. It is time to change the bearings again. We change them once in 6 months or even earlier. They do not operate longer and we always have a downtime.
At the moment we use these bearings https://www.mrosupply.com/bearings/mounted-bearings/bearing-inserts/196394_1320111321_hubcity/
But we really want to change the manufacturer. Who can recommend any company or brand that makes more reliable bearings?
Thanks!

I've always had good luck with Timken bearings.

I agree with Mr. Brewballs. I only use Timken bearings. Your bearing issue could be heat related. Are you taking the time to grease / lube them? Are you buying sealed bearings?
