ABB Dodge Food Safe mounted ball bearings

Wednesday, 20 February, 2019 | Supplied by: ABB Australia Pty Ltd

ABB’s Dodge Food Safe mounted ball bearings are designed to withstand caustic, high-pressure cleaning and sanitation processes. They are the first industrial bearings to achieve the IP69 water protection rating without the use of an end cover, the company claims, making them suitable for use in the food and beverage industry where equipment must be aggressively cleaned. They carry a warranty against failure due to water ingress.

The bearings are resilient against cleaning agents. The 100% stainless steel insert design, combined with a KleenTec top coat, offers protection against corrosion. The smooth housing without a grease fitting minimises contamination harbour points and is easy to clean. The bearing is sealed and lubricated for life to minimise maintenance costs.

To prevent grease washout, the bearing is equipped with lubrication protection. The Hydro armor sealing system, with a stainless steel flinger and four contact lip seals, prevents water and contamination from entering the bearing. The company’s ball retainer, the Maxlife cage, retains a large volume of grease in compartments around the rolling elements to prevent washout during high-pressure cleaning.

The bearings are available in a variety of housing styles, including pillow block, tapped base, flange and take-ups ranging in sizes from 20 to 50 mm.
