Focus on Palletizing Equipment and Extrusion: Mounted bearing units

August 1, 2006

MRC Marathon HDi Series mounted bearing units can be used in applications in the red meat, pork and poultry processing industries, as well as beverage industries that require high-housing strength and corrosion resistance. The heavy-duty, cast iron housing gains corrosion resistance from the company's ZmaRC coating, which eliminates flaking and chipping problems routinely associated with nickel-plated and painted mounted units. Housings are matched with ZmaRC-plated quality insert bearings that are suitable for harsh operating environments and factory lubed-for-life with USDA-approved H1 grease. The two-part seal consists of a patented double-lip AISI 304 stainless seal and flinger, allowing the unit to operate in heavy washdown environments without regreasing.
