  • For wet environments
Product description
iglidur® A180 | The FDA general purpose
 
  • The iglidur® A180 material complies with food and drug administration (FDA) regulations for repeated contact with food
  • Good media-resistance
  • For wet environments
  • Good wear-resistance
  • Lubrication- and maintenance-free
  • Standard range from stock
Bearings made from iglidur® A180 are suitable for application in direct contact with food. Hence they are the ideal solution for bearing positions on machines for the food and packaging industries, medical equipment manufacturing, for small equipment for households, etc. iglidur® A180 is also characterised by lowest moisture absorption where wet cleaning or process-related contact with moist media is the order of the day.

Tolerances and measurement system
The installation dimensions and tolerances of iglidur® plain bearings are a function of the material and wall thicknesses. For each material, the moisture absorption and the thermal expansion are decisive factors. Plain bearings with low moisture absorption can be designed with a minimal bearing clearance. The rule for wall thickness: the thicker the wall of the bearings, the larger the clearances must be.
Testing methods
 
Assembly
iglidur® plain bearings are press-fit bearings. The inner diameter adjusts only after press-fitting in the correctly toleranced housing. The press-fit excess dimension can be up to 2% of the inner diameter. This ensures the secure press-fitting of the bearing. Axial or radial movement in the housing are prevented this way.
