Green, Greaseless Bearing Insert
EDT Corp has announced a new edition of the popular Poly-Round® plane bearing insert. The new Poly-Round® Plus has a stainless pin on the outer diameter to facilitate drop-in installation into bearing housings without utilizing a set-screw as an anti-rotation device. These bearings are self-aligning bearing inserts manufactured from a variety of polymer materials so they are suitable for various operating conditions. In applications where the environment contributes to premature failure of ball bearings, Poly-Round® bearings may be a good alternative because they operate with no grease, no seals or shields, are unaffected by washdown and do not rust. On modular plastic- and wire- belt conveyors, EDT guarantees Poly-Round® bearings to run 12 months without maintenance. The payback is increased UP-time, elimination of process contamination, and superior ROI.
