!! Dodge Stand-off Washdown Bearings
A Must for the Food Industry !!
ABB has introduced the new Dodge® Food Safe mounted ball bearings, designed to withstand caustic, high-pressure cleaning and sanitation processes. They are the first industrial bearings to achieve the IP69 water protection rating without the use of an end cover, and they are the only bearings to carry a warranty against failure due to water ingress.
The new food safe stainless steel bearing is targeted at food plant users who are doing daily washdowns on equipment and need to be able to clean behind or underthe bearing. The main advantages however, are the warranty, the IP69 water protection rating, and the high temperature caustic wash down.
The leading cause of bearing failure in washdown environments is grease washout. The Food Safe bearing is equipped with the Hydro Armor sealing system, an industry-leading lubrication protection system. This system, with a stainless-steel flinger and four contact lip seals, prevents water and contamination from entering the bearing. ABB's patented ball retainer, the Maxlife cage, retains a large volume of grease in compartments around the rolling elements to preventwashout during high-pressure cleaning.
||In order to protect against corrosion, the Food Safe bearing is designed with a 100% stainless steel insert combined with KleenTec, a revolutionary coating. With no grease fitting, the smooth housing minimizes contamination harbor points and is easy to clean. The bearing is sealed and lubricated for life to minimize maintenance costs. Food Safe bearings are available in a variety of housing styles, including pillow block, tapped base, and flanges.
