What’s a bearing isolator?
The bearing isolator is a long-lasting,
reliable alternative to conventional
bearing protection devices..
Bearing failure is the most common
trouble source in equipment
with rotating elements,
such as electric motors, fans, conveyor
head shafts, gearboxes, and
blowers. The source of that failure is
most often product, dirty air, and environmental
contaminants that leak
into the bearing housing and contaminate
the bearing lubrication. The good
news is that you can prevent that contamination
by using a bearing protection
device. One such device, the
bearing isolator, is a long-lasting, reliable
alternative to conventional devices
such as lip and face seals.
