Muskegon, Michigan, USA...The Kaydon Bearings and Cooper Bearings divisions of Kaydon Corporation will be among hundreds of companies exhibiting at the Bluefield Coal Show on September 14-16, 2011, in Bluefield, West Virginia.

The Kaydon booth, #608, will feature a live-motion, split-to-the-shaft Cooper bearing, and examples of Kaydon slewing ring bearings. Both lines of bearings are preferred by some of the top OEMs and operators in both the surface and underground mining industries.

"Cooper bearings are ideally suited for dust-laden environments and where accessibility is limited," said Brian Short, Kaydon director of distribution sales. "They're widely used on conveyors, ventilation fans, and winding gears, as well as in large surface mining equipment."

With diameters of up to 240" (6.1 m), Kaydon slewing bearings are specified for shovels, excavators, hauling vehicles, continuous miners, roof bolters, and other mining equipment. Kaydon also repairs bearings, regardless of original bearing manufacturer.

"Bearings repaired by Kaydon perform as new, at a lower price than a new unit, with workmanship and quality equal to or better than new," said Ron Shaw, remanufacturing manager. "We also offer new replacement bearings. Either way, we can offer reduced pricing and no trade-off in performance."

The Bluefield Coal Show displays new equipment and innovative technology in the coal industry. The show is sponsored by the Greater Bluefield Chamber of Commerce. To register, visit
