The New York Power Authority approached Arvis as they were having trouble with some SAF315 & SAF318 bearing housings breaking, Arvis suggested their FC heavy duty steel bearing housing range but with the same dimensions as the SAF housings and using the same seal configuration.. The company were interested but required evidence that the housings would be strong enough to take the loads.

Arvis supplied full finite element analysis figures (Link to FEA) showing a safety factor of 8 over the required maximum loading and was able to win the order. The customer required full fitting and assembly instructions which were supplied in an animated form showing exactly how to assemble the unit.

After receiving the parts and assembling them, Arvis received an email from the customer stating. The parts look great and assembled easily, nice job.
