Eliminate 52% of bearing failures with LabTecta®66

pump 6 july 15Save your bearings with LabTecta®66, which can reduce bearing oil contamination from 83% to 0.0003%.


Research shows that 52% of bearing failures are due to contamination of the bearing oil, which represent 20.8% of all rotating equipment failures.

LabTecta®66 is a labyrinth design bearing protection seal, which is proven to increase equipment reliability in pumps, electric motors, fans, pillow blocks, steam turbines and gearboxes.


  •     Will help eliminate 52% of bearing failures
  •     Has a conservative life expectancy exceeding 10 years
  •     Is IP66 rated ensuring protection against solids and water contamination, when your equipment is either static or rotating.
  •     Can be fitted on shafts already worn by lip seals

How successful is LabTecta®66?
With over 120,000 LabTecta®66 bearing protectors in service, spanning an 8 year period, NO failure could be attributed to the design of the product.

Statistical analysis using the Weibull and WeiBayes techniques demonstrates that the LabTecta®66 conservative life expectancy is in excess of 10 years.

Further analysis using an accelerated life test conservatively estimated that a LabTecta®66 would last approximately 10.5 years, based on an equipment stop-start cycle of four times a day.

How many bearing failures, damaged shafts, hours of downtime and £’s of lost revenue will you encounter in 10.5 years?

Whitepaper Findings

Our statistical assessment was conducted using Weibull-based WeiBayes techniques. The results demonstrate that the LabTecta life expectancy is in excess of 100,000 hours, which far exceeds typical bearing L10 life expectancy.

Read how the paper further demonstrates that a properly installed and operated non-contacting LabTecta bearing protector can have an infinite life expectancy.
