Metric-sized SealMaster® PN Gold leads Regal’s lineup of corrosion-resistant bearing solutions for the beverage industry at Brau Beviale

Kontich, Belgium - October 25, 2016​​ —Regal Beloit’s Power Transmission Solutions business is demonstrating its metric-sized SealMaster® PN Gold bearings at Brau Beviale as part of an extensive exhibit of sustainable bearing solutions engineered for the beverage industry. At Brau Beviale, Regal’s display will emphasize the CRES series (Corrosion Resistant Engineered Solutions) that includes SealMaster roller and ball bearings. “Bearings play a critical role in operational excellence for the beverage industry,” said Regal’s Steve Quintijn, Product Manager Bearings EMEA. “Properly designed bearings can deliver significantly greater equipment uptime and maintenance savings.”

Metric-bore CRES bearings

SealMaster CRES bearings are engineered for the food/beverage industry using various materials and patented sealing systems to extend life and optimize performance in corrosive conditions, while meeting CIP (Clean in Place) and SIP (Steam in Place) sanitation requirements. Part of the CRES series, the SealMaster PN Gold line includes metric bore sizes for mounted ball bearings (20 to 60 mm) and “ER” cylindrical OD ball bearings (20 to 60 mm). Designed with brewery chemical and cleaning solutions in mind, they are equipped with patented multiple-lip seals and specialty coatings, and available with features like bolt-on end caps and backside shields that enable them to deliver industry-leading service life and performance.

PN Gold bearings are engineered with high-phosphorous, electroless-nickel-plated inner and outer races, and multi-directional triple-lip seals. A unique zone-hardening process on the inner races hardens only the region under the ball path, resulting in improved lock reliability through less distortion at setscrew locations. The high-performance triple-lip contact seals provide multidirectional sealing to retain lubrication and exclude contaminants. Grease cavities in the seal assembly are factory filled with H1 Food Grade lubricant. A Tapered Land profile machined on the outer race redirects lubricant back into the raceway for improved lubricant circulation. An exclusive land-riding retainer design allows 360-degree grease circulation around the rolling elements for better grease retention and utilization.

Solid base housings on Sealmaster PN Gold bearings are machined from 316 stainless steel or
high-strength composite with minimal gaps for fillings. Stainless steel bolt ferrules reinforce the bolt holes
on composite bases for high load capacity and strength. For more details, please access
