Garlock Introduces GUARDIAN XL Bearing Isolator
PALMYRA, NY--(Marketwired - March 22, 2016) - Garlock -
- GUARDIANâ¢ XL bearing isolator is available in 12- to 24-inch sizes
- Ideal for use in pumps, motors and other bearing-supported rotational equipment
- New proprietary in-house manufacturing capabilities allow for industry-leading turnaround time of seven days
Garlock , a leading manufacturer of high-performance fluid sealing and pipeline protection products, introduces the all-new GUARDIANâ¢ XL bearing isolator , available in 12- to 24-inch sizes with an industry-leading turnaround time of just seven days.
Based on the existing design of the standard size GUARDIANâ¢ bearing isolator, the GUARDIANâ¢ XL is meant specifically for heavy-duty applications with large, high-speed rotating shafts.
Ideal for use in pulp and paper mills, printing presses, mining operations, steel mill rollers, overhead cranes and power generation, it can be installed in pumps, motors and other bearing-supported industrial equipment. GUARDIANâ¢ XL is available in both flanged and flangeless designs.
Garlock recently acquired the specialized manufacturing equipment for in-house production capabilities that allow the company to achieve the industry-leading turnaround time. Due to their size and custom design specifications, bearing isolators of this type previously typically required lead times up to two months.
"We're excited to be able to provide our customers with this highly-specialized equipment in just seven days," said Chris Fink, Value Stream Leader. "Bringing the production capability in-house allows us to significantly reduce unplanned downtime for our customers."
The GUARDIANâ¢ XL features an engineered labyrinth design that excludes liquid and solid contamination while successfully retaining bearing lubrication. Its unitizing ring eliminates unwanted metal-to-metal wear on the shaft and housing, improving efficiency by reducing drag, extending equipment life and lowering maintenance costs. Further, its patented Cam-Lock design allows it to be installed without an arbor press for faster mean time to repair (MTTR) during rebuilds.
The GUARDIANâ¢ XL is compliant with or surpasses all industry safety and manufacturing standards, including IEEE 841-2001, NEMA MG 1-2003 and API 610.
