Increasingly extreme cleaning cycles are being used in the drinks bottling, food processing and packaging industries, as well as in medical technology.
More aggressive or highly concentrated chemicals are also being used in order to meet the demanding requirements of hygiene and cleanliness, and reduce machine downtime.
iglidur C210, the new tribo-polymer bearing available from Treotham , has been deigned for lubricant and maintenance-free use.
This wear-resistant tribo-polymer bearing is significantly more resistant to a wide range of acids, solvents and hydrogen peroxide. The permanent application temperature is 100°C.
The new plastic plain bearing iglidur C210 offers combines very low friction values with a very long service life and extreme chemical resistance, providing an excellent price-performance ratio.
This makes the bearing suitable for applications such as the conveyor chains in bottle-cleaning machines.
In the drinks bottling, food processing and packaging industries, freedom from lubrication is important, combined with long service life and resistance to new chemicals in even higher concentrations.
