Following on from the success of the LabTecta66 range of bearing protection, Aesseal has announced the launch of two new products designed for the protection of bearings in electric motors and equipment with tilting pad bearings.

The LabTectaM (Flush Mount Electric Motor Design) is intended for use as a bearing protection device on electric motors requiring flush mounted bearing isolators due to limited outboard space.

This design is also available with a grounding ring to prevent premature bearing failure, which can often be as a result of electrical fluting caused by the creation of stray currents when using variable frequency drive (VFD) motors.

Additionally, and specifically designed for use with tilting pad bearings often used on heavy duty rotating equipment, the NEW LabTectaTP is the ideal solution. Tilting pad bearings have sectional pads on pivots that accommodate a high axial load on the equipment shaft and as such the LabTectaTP is designed to allow up to 0.025" axial movement.

Similar to the rest of the LabTecta range, both of these labyrinth bearing protectors incorporate all of the usual fantastic benefits such as the non-contact design that ensures no wear to the shaft or sleeve and the prevention of water and dust ingress (to IP66), leaving maintenance free bearing protection for electric motors and tilting pads.
