SKF Food Line Y-bearing units reduce the washdown related problems of corrosion, premature failure and environmental impact.

Featuring the 2RF multiple seal design, SKF Food Line Y-bearing units keep detergent, water and other contaminants out of the bearing cavity, while keeping lubricant inside.

With food compatible components – FDA approved seals, NSF, CFIA, Halal and Kosher registered grease and stainless steel bearings – these units help you comply with food safety regulations. The result? You can:

  • improve foreign body ingress prevention – no dripping grease or purge contamination
  • reduce relubrication costs and environmental impact
  • reduce risk of premature bearing failure
  • eliminate the risk of missed lubrication points due to human error
  • improve corrosion-resistance under washdown conditions
  • improve bacteria reduction due to solid or filled base design and smooth surface finish
