Sealmaster® Frozen Pizza SM PN Gold™ Solution

A national food and beverage company was using standard mounted ball bearings on the conveyors in their plant. The bearings were exposed to extreme washdown conditions and began to experience contamination and lubrication issues that led to extended downtime. During a failure analysis of the bearings, it was determined that contamination penetration was the root cause of their bearing failures. There are a total of 248 bearings on this conveyor.

SEALMASTER® SOLUTION

Regal proposed to replace their bearings with the Sealmaster® Reduced Maintenance PN Gold solution. This enhanced bearing solution addressed the contamination issue with the triple lip multi-directional high-performance seal to prevent contaminants from entering the bearing. Regal also recommended a protective backside shield that will prevent water from entering the back raceways of the bearings during washdown. The “sealed for life” bearing eliminated the need for frequent lubrication intervals by the maintenance staff.
