Glen Ellyn, IL — When the Bearing Specialists Association (BSA) met Sept. 24-25, 2012, in Chicago, it approved the publication of two new industry briefs: Water Treatment and Wastewater Treatment.

Both briefs were initiated and drafted by the association’s Educational Services Committee and join a mounting body of free, downloadable, educational materials designed to meet the needs of bearing distributors and end users by defining specific end-use bearing applications, critical design factors in those installations, preferred bearing choices and more.

For example, in the case of the water treatment and wastewater treatment installations, selected bearings must be suitable for wet environments, which in some cases also must accommodate harsh chemicals.

As in the case of all other BSA Industry Briefs, these documents also provide essential background on the overall processes of a specific industry, along with an overview of potential bearing installations. Water Treatment and Wastewater Treatment join industry briefs on Wind Power, Poultry and Cement Processes. All are available as PDF-format documents from the BSA website, www.bsahome.org. BSA extends specials thanks to Brian Short of Kaydon/Cooper for his help in preparing these new educational tools.

BSA is an international service and educational organization of distributors representing a total of almost 100 companies distributing factory-warranted, anti-friction bearings and invited manufacturers of bearings and related products.
