LEWCO’s new semi-precision bearing option A15, is now available as standard option for all product lines utilizing a 1.9 diameter, 16 gage roller including 1916 straight gravity conveyors, 1916C gravity roller curves, 1916S gravity spur conveyors, HG1916 spring loaded gate conveyors and finally R1916 loose rollers.
This bearing is a considerable improvement over the commercial A10 bearings offered in the past by LEWCO and currently standard by LEWCO’s competitors. The new standard bearing offers several notable advantages:
Capacity: The load rating is increased to 300 pounds from 135 pounds capacity for previous standard bearing.
Sound: The noise level of the bearing turning at 500 RPM is reduced to 66 dBA compared to 74 dBA for the old standard, significantly quieter.
Speed Rating: The bearing is capable of turning at 1500 RPM, theoretically can be powered where the old standard was only adequate for gravity applications.
Torque: The starting torque is significantly lower thus allowing personnel to move heavier loads with less force
Value: Same competitive price with all the benefits outlined above!
