Hercules Engineering Herculon Type D tank top bearings are installed under the roof beams of tank tops and other lighter structures in the food and beverage industries to support them and prevent them from cracking and breaking.
Serving as drop-in replacements for all inch-sized linear ball bearings, LM76 FDA- and USDA-compliant bearings measure from 1/4 to 1 1/2 in. in size; they are available in closed and open configurations.
Suitable for continuous operation in high-speed rotation applications under low loads, igus iglide L500 self-lubricating plastic bearings accommodate speeds over 16 ft./sec. and perform in temperatures ranging from -148ºF to 482ºF.
Extending the wear resistance of stainless steel (SS) components used in food manufacturing equipment operating on production lines lengthens replacement intervals and minimizes potential component failure, resulting in decreased downtime and improved cost savings—a long, sought-after goal of any maintenance department.
