EDT Corp has introduced the first ever metal detectable Poly-Round bearings. Poly-Round bearings are polymer plane bearings that directly interchange with industry standard mounted bearings, and have no balls, no grease, no cage, no seals. These features make them clean-operating – so much so that they are the only USDA-accepted bearings available.
Metal detectable Poly-Round bearings are especially beneficial in applications directly over or near food product zones. The metal detectable characteristics of ‘ON’ polymer aid in the detection and recovery of foreign materials, should a failure occur. EDT’s metal detectable Poly-Round bearings are available in shaft sizes from 1/2 to 1-7/16-in., in all styles of machined- or cast- stainless housings.
