ASTON, Pa.--NOLU Plastics has developed a split plastic bearing housing design featuring a split, self-aligning, self-lubricating spherical plastic ball. This product will be used in filling and packaging applications in corrosive environments.
Unlike traditional steel ball bearings which require periodic lubrication and are prone to corrosion, the self-lubricating NOLU bearings are chemically resistant. By using the NOLU split housing, split bearing design for use in line-shaft applications, physical displacement and unwieldy shaft sections are eliminated. During MRO procedures, the two housing halves are simply unbolted and the bearing is inserted without the use of tools. Maintenance labor costs are reduced and product lifetime is extended.
