Kharkiv Bearing Plant presented brand new bearings at the international exhibition AgroExpo-2017 on September 20-23 in Kropyvnytskyi.
According to the plant engineers, the new bearings, which have been developed for agricultural machinery for 6 months, have a new sealing system.
“The multi-lip rubber seals in combination with a protective metal shield provide higher reliability of the new bearings, protecting them against dust, dirt and rough impurities in the polluted environment,” the developers stated.
Also, the innovative seals increase bearings’ life circle and durability by double, allowing them to work at a wide range of operating temperatures from 40 C below zero to 150 C above zero.
In addition to the new generation bearings, the plant presented some solutions for agricultural machinery by both domestic and foreign manufacturers including maintenance-free bearings and a line of pillow blocks on their basis.
The plant managers state that new Bearing Plant’s product with maintenance-free seals has already stirred a vivid interest in the European market at the design stage. However, after the exhibition, the Ukrainian manufacturers including some heads of agricultural machinery enterprises were impressed by the Kharkiv innovative parts no less than the Europeans.
