Safely sealed up: iglidur sealing concept for longer service life

26 February 2019

igus introduces sealing rings for its maintenance-free plain bearings to provide additional hygiene and protection against extreme dirt accumulation.

The seals are available for all igus flanged bearings, making a wide range of application-related material combinations feasible.

The flexible sealing rings are simply slipped onto the flange and they protect against the ingress of dirt and media into the plain bearing and components behind it. For applications that require additional lubrication, the sealing ring ensures that the lubricants do not press out of the bearing. Here, wear is further reduced, the shaft protected from corrosion and the service life of the application is enhanced. 

The sealing rings are suitable for all iglidur flanged bearings, from the iglidur G all-rounder to FDA-compliant materials. When used in combination with bearings made of FDA-compliant materials such as iglidur A160, A180 and A350, the latter protects bearing points and components from aggressive cleaning agents and optimise hygiene. In addition to the agricultural and construction machinery industry, possible application scenarios for the all-rounder sealing rings include general mechanical engineering for slow-running pumps and conveyor belts and actuators in the automotive industry. 

Bearings and seal sets are available ready to install, supplied in different sizes and material combinations.
