igus presents their line of detectable self-aligning bearings for the food industry. The detectable bearings are an extension of the self-aligning bearings line, which includes a range of lubrication and maintenance-free rod-end bearings, clevis joints, flanged units, press fit and pedestal bearings. Both the housing and spherical ball are detectable by standard metal-detection system. The bearings are easy to install, adjust to all angular misalignments, and can replace traditional metal bearings, which can weigh up to 80% more than igubal. The bearings are dry-running, unaffected by dirt and dust, operate well in liquids and a variety of chemicals, and are corrosion resistant. They are suited to run in temperatures from -40º - 176º F, and are able to absorb very high forces due to their vibration-dampening properties.
