Downtime is lost money! Everyone knows that, but how do increase the reliability of your rotating shaft driven equipment? The best way is to prevent debris from getting into the bearings or the bearing lubricants from getting out of the system and causing failures.

Installing Inpro/Seal bearing protection systems will help ensure that you don’t have lost time due to premature bearing failures. As your authorized Southern Wisconsin and Northern Illinois distributor of Inpro/Seal products, PDC is committed to helping you find the right solution to your bearing protection needs!
