SKF supplies bearings for Zytek's hybrid-electric race car
SKF has introduced a new generation of Y-bearing units developed to offer a highly effective solution for the demanding and varied environments in the food and beverage industry. These robust units offer dependable, maintenance free performance and have been specially designed to withstand an extremely wide range of operating temperatures, as well as humidity, aggressive fluids, gases and light particulate matter.
Ideal for use in conveyors, sorters, sizers, presses, augers, brush washers and all washdown areas, the Food Line Y-bearing units feature SKF's industry proven 2RF seal to withstand high pressure washdowns, as well as other sources of moisture and process contaminants. As these high performance seals prevent water, detergents and light contaminants from entering the bearing, they eliminate the need for relubrication after washdowns to purge water and contaminants, extending bearing lifecycles considerably and reducing lubricant consumption and maintenance requirements.
Hygienically developed, sealed and lubricated for life with NSF approved SKF food grade grease, the new units enable productivity levels to be optimised and costs to be minimised, while eliminating the risk of contamination. This also this means that the devices offer consistently reliable service despite the demanding conditions typical of food productions lines, reducing maintenance.
