Moulded-oil Bearings Offer Long Life At Food Plants
In the food industry, comprehensive cleaning regimes are commonplace as companies look to meet stringent sector requirements on hygiene. However, such practices can prove detrimental to production line components, not least the bearings that provide motion in critical machinery, equipment and systems.
For these reasons, NSK offers a comprehensive range of Moulded-Oil bearings that is purpose-designed to deliver extended operating life in harsh food industry environments.Image1.jpeg – Lubricant is durably incorporated inside a stable carrier medium of Moulded-Oil bearings.
A wide range of Moulded-Oil bearings is available, including deep groove ball bearings, spherical roller bearings and tapered roller bearings, in several product series and in special forms such as housed bearing units. The range also includes Moulded-Oil bearings made of stainless steel.
This confirms one of NSK′s “rules of thumb”: in applications where the environment is contaminated by moisture and dust, the service life of Moulded-Oil bearings in stainless steel is more than twice that of bearings with conventional grease lubrication.
