New stand-offs for flanged mounted bearings simplify installation and sanitation of food/beverage conveyor
Regal Power Transmission Solutions (regalpts.com) has developed a new single-piece stand-off for flanged mounted bearings that integrates the bolt-spacer ferrule and stand-off in one assembly for simpler installation and sanitation compliance in food/beverage operations. Engineered for use with System Plast™ flanged mounted bearings and Sealmaster® composite-flanged PN Gold bearings, the patent-pending one-piece design eliminates loose parts during installation, improves bearing installation alignment and creates a 5/8" gap behind the bearing flange for easier cleaning/inspection. Available for OEM or retrofit applications, the standoffs can be factory installed in new bearings or easily retrofitted with common tools. The stand-offs are made of 300 Series passivated stainless steel, and sold in packs of four. For more information, watch the video.
