EDT Introduces Type E Solution Bearings That Are Grease-Less, Non-Corrosive And Available Fully Split
EDT Corp has added Type E bearings to its Solution® line of severe service bearings. Type E Solution® bearings have high load capacity and the same dimensional footprint of industry-standard Type E tapered roller bearings along with the advantages of being fully non-corrosive and completely grease-less.
Type E Solution® bearings are constructed with a 304 stainless housing, a Poly-Sphere® plane bearing that is made from a high performance polymer, plus a 316 stainless locking sleeve. Plane bearings work without rolling elements, so grease is unnecessary and seals are eliminated. Plane bearing design also makes it possible to offer completely split inserts in addition to split housings. EDT Type E Solution® bearings are available in one-piece or split styles of pillow blocks, four bolts and piloted housings for shaft sizes from 1-3/16" to 5". Split units are drop-in replacements for popular RPB, RFB and RFP spherical roller bearings with the added options of split bearings and split sleeves.
In locations where the environment compromises the grease of standard roller bearings or more corrosion resistance is needed, EDT Type E Solution® bearings can provide a superior alternative when used in appropriate locations. EDT can assist you in identifying applications where Type E Solution® bearings will last longer, reduce maintenance, and save significant operating costs for you over time.
