Bearings with enhanced formulas for more applications
The Solid Oil bearings have added enhanced formulas to benefit more applications and are filled with an oil-saturated polymer matrix, which creates a consistent lubricant supply able to withstand very cold temperatures (down to -65 F and -53 C), aggressive chemicals, contaminants, and high centrifugal forces. The polymer matrix contains two- to four-times more lubricating oil than standard grease-filled bearings and the bearings never have to be re-lubricated. As a result, maintenance lubrication challenges are eliminated, especially benefiting applications where the accessibility to manually lubricate bearings is unsafe, impractical, and/or impossible. They are designed for applications such as food processing equipment, cranes, machinery, and conveyors where manual greasing would raise safety issues.
