Ask for ETX Seal for FDA/USDA Applications

linear motion bearing with ETX seals supplied by LM76


Linear Motion Application Story – A manufacturer of cheese slicing equipment called.  He said, he was told, ” if you need a solution, call LM76!”

He did, and we solved his problem. The customer is an internationally known manufacturer of cheese slicing equipment. He needed a hard, low friction seal which would also act as a scraper. However, unlike Buna or Nitrile seals which increase friction and trap debris, this application required a seal which would contribute to low friction while having the hardness and dimensional characteristics of a scraper. LM76 machined seals from ETX:

ETX has wear-resistance and dimensional stability surpassing other common wear grade plastics, and excellent resistance to many harsh chemicals, including aggressive food products, cleaning solutions and petroleum products. It outlasts unfilled nylons (PA) by a minimum factor of 8 and lasts a minimum of 50 times longer than unfilled acetals (POM). Even industry-standard wear materials like PTFE filled acetal and oil filled nylon are no match for the performance of ETX. Because of the material’s unique composition, its wear resistance increases as bearing velocities increase. Adding to the product’s strengths are its ability to maintain tight dimensions and close tolerances in wet environments unsuitable for nylon materials.

Further, since ETX has FDA and USDA compliance, it can be used or machined components for food packaging and processing equipment.

LM76 = Problem Solved
