Treotham introduces a new range of detectable spherical bearings from igus, designed specifically for food and drug makers.

An extension of the igubal self-aligning bearings line from igus, which includes a range of lubrication and maintenance-free rod-end bearings, clevis joints, flanged units, press fit and pedestal bearings, the new spherical detectable bearings including the housing as well as the spherical ball are detectable by standard metal detection systems, which can pick up even the smallest particles of the bearings in the event of failure.

Key features of igubal detectable bearings include simple installation; adjustability to all angular misalignments; ideal replacement for traditional metal bearings, which can weigh up to 80% more; dry-running characteristics, unaffected by dirt and dust; excellent operation in liquids and various chemicals; and corrosion resistance.

igubal detectable bearings offer an operating temperature range of -20°C to +80°C, have the ability to absorb very high forces due to their vibration-dampening properties, and also possess high levels of compressive strength and elasticity.
