Regal’s IP69K Package of Products
Helping Customers Balance Sanitation and Productivity Requirements
Food and beverage plants across the globe are continuing to raise the bar on productivity, while also practicing their stringent Clean In Place (CIP) regimens as part of their corporate and government sanitation guidelines. To meet both of these objectives, maintenance and operations personnel are continuing to push for improved component reliability, to reduce the continual maintenance headaches caused by increased sanitation needs. At Regal, we are focusing on providing durable, corrosion resistant products that prevent downtime so our customers can focus on productivity and safely processing food every day. As one supplier, we can provide our customers third-party IP69K products to meet their CIP standards.
What is IP69K?
IP69K has historically been used for electric motors and is a rating system published by the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC). IP69K certifies parts for water or dry contamination ingress. I-P stands for ingress protection. Six indicates a product as “dust tight” with no dust ingress. 9K indicates the highest-ranking level of water protection. Recently, the IP69K test has become the only certified test for PT products in our industry.
What does Regal Offer?
Sealmaster® PN Gold™ Mounted Ball and Spherical Roller Bearings have high performance triple lip seals to protect against contaminant ingress. With better seals there’s less bearing failure, and with less failure there’s increased uptime and reduced labor costs.

HERA gear drives are 90% efficient, HACCP compatible, BISSC certified, and USDA accepted.
