Scraper seals for linear bearings used in food processing applications

Scraper seals for linear bearings used in food processing applications
A range of FDA/USDA/3-A diary compliant seals have been introduced by LM76, the snap-in ETX Scraper Seals. Machined from Ertalyte PET-P, ETX Scraper Seals have high strength, wear resistance, low coefficient of friction, and excellent dimensional stability at higher temperatures than seals from other materials. Designed with a slight interference fit between bearing ID and shaft, ETX Scraper Seals prevents contaminates and debris from migrating beneath the seal as it scrapes the shaft surface.

Next-gen hydraulic bolts launched for rotating flanges

Next-gen hydraulic bolts launched for rotating flanges
Demounting and reassembling flanged power transmission couplings in a single-step operation is now a possibility for maintenance engineers using SKF’s new Quickgrip Bolts. Designed for high-torque rotating flanges, the new SKF Quickgrip Bolts, as well as existing SKF Supergrip Bolts, can be used to connect two flanged shafts quickly, safely and reliably. This applies to all types of propulsion systems, as well as rudders and other critical applications.

Sparkling results leave Severn Trent Water delivering clean water

Sparkling results leave Severn Trent Water delivering clean water
Recently the cable management system on Severn Trent Water’s grit tank needed replacing at Coalport Sewage Treatment Works (STW), and it didn’t just want to replace it with the same one as before. As even though the old system had been in service for years, it had several flaws, so this was an opportunity to completely redesign and improve the whole cable management system.
