Garlock has launched FLOOD-GARD Bearing Isolators, which offer the proven performance of Garlock bearing isolators for flooded applications.
The patent-pending seal design provides bearing protection even in the most challenging flooded environments, extending the life of rotating equipment such as gearboxes, pumps and motors.
“FLOOD-GARD allows Garlock to unlock value for our customers by taking industry leading bearing isolator technology, and advancing it even further, into a seal that excels in flooded conditions,” says Kevin Allison, product manager, KLOZURE.
The latest addition to Garlock’s family of KLOZURE Bearing Isolators, FLOOD-GARD is a revolutionary seal that combines improved safety and overall process efficiency with cost savings through extended equipment and bearing life. FLOOD-GARD’s Cam-Lock design provides excellent bore retention while allowing easy installation by hand, without the need for an arbor press.
Other benefits include the ability to accommodate up to .015” of radial shaft misalignment and patented PTFE unitized construction that eliminates metal-to-metal contact, all while achieving an IP66 rating in most configurations — flanged, small cross section, step shaft and vertical.
