Rolling bearings are key components in beverage production machinery, from blowing, filling and capping, and labelling, to conveying and palletising. Their performance, reliability and operating life have a significant effect on operating costs. As a result, bearing supplier NSK has designed and manufactured the Spacea series of bearings to help beverage equipment manufacturers and users to improve performance.

The Spacea bearings provide high performance and reliability under all types of demanding operating conditions.

The Aqua-Bearing, for example, is a highly corrosion-resistant bearing for light load applications up to 40°C. The use of a special fluorine plastic for the inner and outer rings with a fluorine plastic cage, enables the Aqua-Bearing to achieve corrosion resistance equal to ceramic bearings.

The fibre-reinforced fluorine material gives the inner and outer bearing rings increased strength and rigidity. It also provides an endurance over 1,000 times that of stainless steel bearings.
