SKF Food Line Y-bearing units
Relubrication-free solution in wet contaminated environments
The cycle of washdowns and lubricant washout in food and beverage manufacturing creates a never-ending cycle of waste. It is common to relubricate bearings after each washdown – daily, weekly or at other intervals based on production specifics. During this process, excess grease is discharged past the bearing seals (purged). At the next washdown cycle, the grease is washed away and into the plant’s waste water. Because they can withstand frequent washdowns without relubrication, SKF Food Line Y-bearing units can eliminate the need for relubrication, grease disposal and concern about environmental impact.
