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

Tolerances and measurement system
The installation dimensions and tolerances of the iglide® plain bearings are a function of the material and wall thicknesses. For each material, the moisture absorption and the thermal expansion are imperative. Plain bearings with low moisture absorption can be designed with a minimal amount of tolerance. For wall thickness, the rule is: The thicker the bearings are, the larger the tolerances must be.
Testing methods
 
Assembly
iglide® bearings are press-fit bearings. The inner diameter adjusts only after press-fit in the proper housing bore with a recommended tolerance. The before press-fit oversized dimension can be up to 2% of the inner diameter. In this manner, the secure press-fitting of the bearing is achieved. Axial or radial shifts in the housing are also prevented.
