Interactive CD: Bearing Isolators Inside Out
Inpro/Seal Co., Rock Island, IL, reports it's producing nearly 40,000 bearing isolators per month and anticipates it will manufacture 100,000 per month in the near term. This announcement comes at a time when many companies are reporting production cutbacks. Bearing isolators, which are often used to replace lip seals, can protect motor and pump bearings, machine tool spindles, turbines, fans, gear boxes, paper machine rolls, and many other types of rotating equipment. Additional applications include the sealing, handling, processing, packing and storage of dry particulates, powders, and bulk solids. More information on bearing isolators is available in an interactive CD package that includes an introduction to bearing isolators as well as a comparison with lip seals and a cost justification worksheet.
