FRANTZ introduces the ELIMINATOR ABEC-1 precision conveyor bearing for 1.9" conveyor rollers. The elimination of a thru axle allows for the tube to deflect without the same axle deflection on the ball races, permitting use of lighter gauged 1.9" rollers as a substitute for heavier and more costly 2.5" rollers in many conveyors, particularly pallet type conveyors. FRANTZ GenStar® ELIMINATOR w/IronGrip Adapter contains a single ABEC-1 core precision bearing with a roller capacity of 270 lbs capable of spanning roller lengths through 40" with strong continued performance through 72".
