MRC released its High-Temperature Plane Bearing Inserts, which function at temperatures up to 500F. Three-part construction includes inner rings made of 316 stainless steel and outer rings made of 304 stainless steel. Both rings are anti-corrosive. A polymer sleeve is used to reduce friction and allow the bearing to operate at higher speeds. According to MRC, the polymer also replaces the need for lubrication and provides a nearly maintenance-free operation.
Diameters range from ¾ inch to 1 15/16 inch and an anti-rotation key slot in the outer sleeve mates with a set screw in the housing to prevent rotation. These bearings are also USDA-approved for contact with meat, poultry and dairy, either incidentally or directly.
On Memorial Day, Americans remember the sacrifices the US armed forces have made, and continue to make, in service to the country. All of us should also consider the developments in technological capabilities and equipment over the years that contribute to the success of our military operations.
In order to keep in line with safety protocols, industrial networks need to be filtered in a semantic way so that only information related to diagnostics is flowing back to the vendor and that any communications that could be used for remote machine operations are suppressed.
Advanced visualization can depict an entire plant in motion, while also detailing an individual workstation. Individual products can be rendered different for each discipline involved — marketing, engineering, or suppliers.
