KML Bearing USA Introduces IP69K-Compliant, Stainless-Steel Stand-Out™ Mounted Bearings That Meet Food Equipment Hygienic Design & Clean-in-Place Criteria
Pottstown, PA - August 23, 2019 - KML Bearing USA introduces a superior, hygienic design of its Stainless-Steel Stand-Out™ Mounted Bearings that incorporates the company’s Poly-Guard IP69K Sealing System. This new design provides food processing equipment manufacturers with a cost-effective and sanitary bearing solution that meets the strict sanitary requirements of the Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA).
Developed for high-moisture food applications such as poultry, beef and pork processing, the Stainless-Steel Stand-Out™ Mounted Bearings meet the criteria for clean-in-place and eradicate bacteria harborage sites by eliminating edge seams and crevices at the bearing mounting location. A stand-out mounting configuration eliminates the need for the fabrication and welding of clearance spacers, saving time and money.
To meet IP69K requirements, KML developed the Poly-Guard IP69K Sealing System that protects the Stainless-Steel Stand-Out Mounted Bearings against the ingress of dust, water and harmful bacteria especially during high-pressure, high-temperature food equipment washdowns. It is the first-ever Stainless-Steel Mounted Bearing Sealing System to meet IP69K washdown requirements.
The Poly-Guard IP69K Sealing System provides the next level of sanitary enclosure. Fully-enclosed end and through shafts coupled with a variety of back seals and V-rings protect against surface corrosion and chemical damage while the hermetically-sealed bearing are enclosed to eliminate harborage issues.
By marrying its Stand-Out™ Mounted Bearings with the Poly-Guard IP69K Seal System, KML offers the next-generation in hygienic and washdown-tolerant bearings for OEMs and consumer good companies in complying with the requirements of the FSMA.
