Extreme Bearing Corrosion Free Bearing Housing Units

EXTREME BEARING bearing housings are the cost-optimal high-tech end solution for all environments such as (e.g. in the food processing industry) in which aggressive influences (salt, moisture, dirt, chemicals) act on the bearing units used and significantly shorten the service life of the bearing units.

Disadvantages of other bearing housing solutions in aggressive environments (salt water, dirt, chemicals, water):

Use of plastic housings

Plastic housings can only withstand aggressive environments to a degree, until failure occurs due to swelling, brittleness or fatigue due to high mechanical forces, with all the negative consequences for production and the associated costs.

Use of gray cast iron housings

Gray cast iron housings can withstand higher forces, but rust in aggressive environments and cannot be used in food technology due to hygiene regulations.

Use of bearings made of stainless steel (e.g. bearing SUC 210)

High price, limitation in absorption of forces (softer, stainless steel; high wear) and the only protection from the environment only through a sealing washer on the bearing itself. The only advantage: Food-safe in combination with food-safe fat.

Optimal solution with industrial storage units from “EXTREME BEARINGS”

With a high-end sealing solution, assemblies from EXTREME BERAINGS enable the user to use the housing made of stainless steel F316 (1.4404) in combination with the appropriate choice of grease, ball bearings made of roller bearing steel (e.g. 100Cr6) in aggressive environments and thus save the Use of expensive storage solutions
softer, stainless steel, weak plastic housings or rusting gray cast iron housings.

EXTREME BEARINGS construction options

Selection of the right EXTREME BEARINGS bearing housing for every application

  • Selection of the right EXTREME BEARINGS sealing solution
  • Selection of the right EXTREME BEARINGS bearing housing for every application
  • Selection of the right lubricant solution
  • Design as a loss of grease lubrication variant or pressure-tight variant
  • Independence from bearing manufacturer


Greater system reliability through the use of more heavily designed bearings
Reduction of costs over time for the plant operator
Up to 5 times higher load capacity of the storage unit

Practical example:
Bearing survival time for assemblies of a customer in the mussel processing industry in the Netherlands could be optimized from 3-4 months to 6 years with assemblies from EXTREME BERAINGS.
