KML Stand-Out Mounted Bearings offer protection against bacteria and contaminants.
KML Bearing USA introduced its Stand-Out Mounted Bearings that incorporate a Poly-Guard IP69K Sealing System, that offers protection against possible contaminations. The bearing’s design eliminates edge seams and crevices at bearing mountings. The proprietary Poly-Guard IP69K Sealing System passed tests of 1500 PSI without any ingress of water. The system also prevents the ingress of dust and harmful bacteria, especially during high-velocity, high-temperature chemical washdowns mandated by the Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA). Besides, the seal helps prevent corrosion of the critical bearing surfaces while reducing chemical damage and embrittlement to critical sealing surfaces, the company says.
