Why You Should Use the IP69K Series Bearing For Harsh Environments?

Posted on September 16, 2020

Emerson Bearing's IP69K Series bearings are designed to withstand harsh operating conditions, including high pressure caustic washdowns and other sanitization processes commonly used in food and beverage applications. This safe, reliable, and effective sealing device has a unique triple-lip and molded rubber composition, which provides superior protection against water and dust, while its “lubed for life” feature eliminates grease zerks, lube holes, and other potential intrusion areas.

What Is the IP69K Series Bearing?

The IP69K Series bearing is a specialized heavy-duty bearing engineered specifically to withstand close-range sanitizing procedures that require frequent temporary submersions and employ high temperatures, high pressures, and harsh chemicals.

Our IP69K Series bearings are composed of corrosion resistant stainless steel, making them highly durable, long-lasting, and easy to sanitize. They are compatible with all major housing configurations and come in sizes ranging from 201 to 208 (1/2" to 1-1/2"). IP69K Series bearings are certified for optimal protection against both liquid and dust ingress, and they are FDA compliant in regards to hygiene and corrosion resistance.
