Product description
iglidur® A500 | The endurance runner at higher temperatures in the food sector
 
  • Compliant with EC directive 10/2011 EC
  • FDA-compliant
  • Temperature resistant from -100 °C to +250 °C
  • High chemical resistance
  • Lubrication and maintenance-free
  • Standard range from stock
iglidur® A500 bearings are permitted for direct contact with foodstuffs. They exhibit an exceptionally good chemical resistance and are suitable for heavy-duty use in machinery for the food industry. Though iglidur® A500 is an extremely soft material, it simultaneously possesses an excellent compressive strength even at high temperatures.

Tolerances and measurement system
The installation dimensions and tolerances of the iglidur® plain bearings are a function of the material and wall thicknesses. For each material, the moisture absorption and the thermal expansion are imperative. Plain bearings with low moisture absorption can be designed with a minimal amount of tolerance. For wall thickness, the rule is: The thicker the bearings are, the larger the tolerances must be.
Testing methods
 
Assembly
iglidur® bearings are press-fit bearings. The inner diameter adjusts only after press-fit in the proper housing bore with a recommended tolerance. The before press-fit oversized dimension can be up to 2% of the inner diameter. In this manner, the secure press-fitting of the bearing is achieved. Axial or radial shifts in the housing are also prevented.
