- Normapac was having wear issues with the Teflon bearings in their agitators, where they had to replace them every 2-4 months.
- In 2016, they switched to SXL with a cold water flush on the bearings. As of today they have had no problems since then.
Normapac is replacing the bearings in their agitators as they become due for repair.
