The new SGi Shaft Grounding Bearing Isolator from Garlock (Palmyra, NY) helps protect bearings from electrical damage, as well as from lubricant loss and contamination. It combines the technologies of the GUARDIAN non-sparking bronze labyrinth seal and the AEGIS shaft grounding ring, in a single unit. It is ideal for motors controlled by variable frequency drives. Benefits of the new product include:
- An IP56 non-contact isolation seal that withstands dust and powerful jetting liquids.
- The ability to withstand operating temperatures from -22° to 300°F.
- The AEGIS FiberLock Channel, which permanently secures circumferential rows of conductive microfibers, preventing accidental contamination of the bearing.
