Q.C. Industries, llc: Permanently lubed bearings

QC Industries has replaced its standard bearings with Lube-for-Life Bearings, which feature a permanently applied Micro-Poly Lubricant specially designed to meet the needs of the company’s conveyors.

With this change, the conveyors are said to be maintenance-free. The greaseless design of the bearings eliminates both the need to periodically lubricate them and the possibility of grease escaping the bearings and contacting product on the surface of the conveyor. Sealed bearings prevent contamination from debris, which extends their life. Micro-Poly Lubricant is comprised of polymers and oils, which are retained by the porous structure and continue to lubricate bearing surfaces even in hard-to-reach areas.
