Stainless housings and expanded mounted bearing choices

BY MIKE SANTORA

We has expanded its solution mounted plane and ball bearings, adding production and machined stainless steel housing in a wide price range, with capabilities for applications in all areas of the process floor.

The expansion of the line, which first featured polymer housings paired with a choice of Poly-Round plane bearings, allows end users to select not only the bearing but the housing that best suits their application. Two types of stainless steel housings round out the expanded lineup: a 304 production stainless steel housing with outstanding price-to-performance, and a 304 or 316 machined stainless steel housing. Between the Poly-Round and ball bearings lines, customers can select from six different bearing types, six different housing styles, and three different housing materials.

Poly-Round bearings have no rolling elements and are grease-less, requiring zero lubrication. This eliminates process contamination (particularly critical in food processing). Rust is also eliminated; Poly-Round bearings are virtually maintenance-free. Additionally, after the bearing wears, it can be rotated 180º to double its life.

When an application requires a ball bearing (such as curved conveyors or high speeds or tension), customers can choose from Value, Choice or Classic ball bearings. Our stainless steel ball bearings are made of all metal detectable components, providing higher levels of food safety. The Value and Classic bearings are setscrew-locking, which yields the shortest length-thru bore. The Value series is an economical unit, suited for normal duty applications, while the Classic series offers longer life, with customizable seals, shields and lubrication configurations, and is designed for extreme duty applications. The Choice series of ball bearings uses an eccentric self-locking collar, which eliminates cracked inner rings associated with overtightening of setscrews. It is designed for normal to heavy duty applications.
