Original Press Release
New Inpro/Seal® mini66(TM) Bearing Isolator Provides Permanent Bearing Protection in Applications with Limited Space
Press release date: August 8, 2014
Rock Island, Ill., USA – Inpro/Seal, the company that invented the Bearing Isolator, is proud to announce the newest innovation in Bearing Isolator technology, the mini66.
The mini66 is the smallest Bearing Isolator available to be rated IP66. With only a 0.375" (9.52mm) overall length, the mini66 protects against both water and dust ingress on applications with very limited space. This latest advancement in Bearing Isolator technology allows for permanent bearing protection on a wider range of rotating equipment than ever before.
While contact seals wear and become ineffective over time, Inpro/Seal Bearing Isolators utilize a non-contacting, non-wearing design that continues to protect against contamination ingress and lubrication loss. The unique technology provides increased reliability, decreased downtime, and fewer maintenance costs.
As a non-contacting seal with no wearing parts, the mini66 will provide IP66 performance for the application lifetime. All designs are custom engineered to meet the exact requirements of an application and operating environment and can be manufactured in bronze or stainless steel.
