Garlock, a manufacturer of high-performance fluid sealing products, has launched FLOOD-GARD Bearing Isolators, which offer the proven performance of Garlock bearing isolators for flooded applications. The patent-pending seal design provides bearing protection even in the most challenging flooded environments, extending the life of rotating equipment such as gearboxes, pumps and motors.
“FLOOD-GARD allows Garlock to unlock value for our customers by taking industry leading bearing isolator technology, and advancing it even further, into a seal that excels in flooded conditions,” says Kevin Allison, Product Manager, KLOZURE.
The latest addition to Garlock’s family of KLOZURE Bearing Isolators, FLOOD-GARD is a seal that combines improved safety and overall process efficiency with cost savings through extended equipment and bearing life. FLOOD-GARD’s Cam-Lock design provides excellent bore retention while allowing easy installation by hand, without the need for an arbor press. Other benefits include the ability to accommodate up to .015-in. of radial shaft misalignment and patented PTFE unitized construction that eliminates metal-to-metal contact, all while achieving an IP66 rating in most configurations — flanged, small cross section, step shaft, and vertical.
