Product description
iglidur® A181 | The universal bearing for contact with food
 
  • Compliant with EU regulation 10/2011
  • FDA-compliant
  • Universal installation
  • Good media-resistance
  • Wear-resistant
  • Lubrication- and maintenance-free
  • Standard range from stock
The iglidur® A181 material is food compliant with EU regulation 10/2011 EC and FDA specifications. The blue colour also facilitates the often required 'optical detectability' in the food industry. Compared to iglidur® A180 with regards to mechanical properties, temperature and media resistance, iglidur® A181 is more suitable for wear resistance in most cases.

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.
