Stainless-Steel Mounted Bearings for Washdown Applications
Boston Gear, Charlotte, N.C., launched a new line of stainless-steel mounted bearings and shaft couplings designed for superior performance in high-pressure food processing and packaging washdown applications.
The line includes pillow block and flanged mounted bearings featuring cast stainless-steel housings, synthetic lip seals and NSF H1 food grade grease.
SSFC Series insert (3-jaw) type shaft couplings made of 316 stainless-steel with passivated finish are also available with a choice of oil-impregnated Bost-Bronz, oil-resistant synthetic rubber or polyurethane inserts. Units require no lubrication and are available with precision-machined bores or solid hubs.
