ABOUT THIS INDUSTRY SECTOR
Roller, ball, linear, taper are just some of the huge range of bearing types that we are involved in making.
It is often said that “bearings make the world go round” and PETROFER has been globally supplying the leading manufacturers for decades. As one of a few companies that can offer products to manufacture every type of bearing, and in all the steps of production, PETROFER can offer support, products and expertise to all the worlds bearing manufacturers. Linear, roller, ball, taper, ceramic are just a few, and the application range is huge, covering domestic goods, cars, machine tools, computer drives, steel mills, satellites to huge items such as wind turbines and down in size to dentists drills. Through all these steps cleanliness is critical and PETROFER fully understand the synergy needed between process steps and fluids in use, and so can offer cleaners, both emulsion and synthetic as required by the customer and process to optimise the production process.
HOW WE HELP YOU
- We can offer lubricants and formulated chemical products to efficiently aid production through: forging, ring rolling, turning, drilling, centreless grinding, heat treatment, track and O/D, I/D grinding followed by superfinish and assembly with greasing and rust prevention before despatch to the customer.
- The bearing industry universally is so complex and has many unique processes and requirements that the supplier who is technically, commercially and highly supportive with knowledge of the industry if needed.

HOW WE HELPED A CLIENT
One leading bearing maker had problems achieving thee required filtration levels on their super finishing process. This resulted in poor Ra values on the finished bearing track, and subsequent failure on the quality noise test. PETROFER, through supplying one of our Superfin range of products, which has a much lower viscosity, achieved Ra values and improved filtration of the debris resulting in a much improved, cleaner, super finishing process.
