Stainless Steel Cam Followers for Food & Beverage
Featured Product from Accurate Bushing Company, Inc.
In extreme applications where bearings are being subject to high temperature or corrosive environments, such as material handling and washdown systems, stainless materials or special platings must be considered. The Problem: Standard carbon steel needle bearing cam followers experience premature failure due to severe environments. The solution: Smith-Bearing Stainless Steel Cam Followers!
Smith Bearing manufactures needle roller bearings in a wide variety of high-temperature and corrosive resistant exotic alloys including 440-C Stainless Steel.
Corrosion resistant plating is effective when using bearings in corrosive environments. Non-bearing surfaces such as inner races and end washers are cadmiumplated to resist corrosion. The outer races of the bearings are typically hard-chrome plated to resist wear as well as corrosion.
Precision manufactured Smith-Rails drastically reduce system design time and sourcing cost of guidance systems for material handling equipment supported by heavy-duty SMITH-TRAX track rollers.
