Bushing Bearings Engineered to Last in Harsh Washdown Environments
“By eliminating the need for ball bearings, these food grade bushing bearings can operate on soft shafting such as Thomson ‘corrosion proof’ 316 Stainless Steel or Ultra Light Aluminum LinearRace shafting to deliver exceptionally long life and reliable operation in washdown environments,” says Tom Dwyer, Business Unit Manager, Thomson Linear Bearings & Guides.
Thomson Food Grade Fluoronyliner Bushing bearings feature robust liner material that can withstand a maximum continuous PV value of 10,000 psi ft/min, can handle high loads with a maximum static pressure value of 1000 psi, and provide maximum no load speeds to 400 ft/min. in temperatures ranging from -400 up to 385°F. They are available in optional Stainless Steel pillow block assembles in closed, open, flanged and twin styles, and can be combined with a wide range of corrosion resistant LinearRace® shafting options, including 440C and 316 Stainless Steel, Ultra Light aluminum and plated 60 Case, to deliver optimized performance specific to the application requirements.
