Our thermoplastic housing series are very successful and popular products in the food, pharmaceutical and chemical industry. Main properties: corrosion free, high strength, shock and chemical resistant.
Coated or plated cast iron housings can scratch, chip and peel. In fact, during installation the finish can be damaged at the edges of the bolts by tightening the bolts. These housings are made of solid PBT, therefore no protective coating is required. Another advantage is that when a part of the housing is damaged, the PBT material is still not vulnerable to corrosion.
Because of their corrosion-resistant and non-magnetic properties, our housings are used in a wide variety of industries, including: food processing, canning, bottling, pharmaceutical, chemical processing and in many general industrial applications.
You can be completely confident that the housings will endure the toughest applications. The housings can be cleaned or hosed down with hot water, and will operate at temperatures up to 102°C. The grease nipple and the bushes in the bolt-holes are made of stainless steel material.
The bearing housings are made of high-grade, fiberglass-strengthened thermoplastic polyester and they are completely interchangeable with conventional cast iron housings. These maintenance-free housings have excellent mechanical strength and stiffness yet they will never suffer from corrosion.
Where high standards of hygiene are important, such as in the food and pharmaceutical industries, their smooth surfaces are much more hygienic than those of cast iron housings, whose rough surfaces can hold dirt, mold or bacteria.
