Cost-effective System Solution with Extremely Effective Sealing Action

The seals of bearing supports in shaker shafts are subject to extreme dust exposure especially in dry climates. Here, the use of our proven three-lip seals is vital.

The shaker plates must be guided very close to each other in order to achieve a high harvest yield. However, in order to prevent the plates coming into contact with each other, the bearing support must have high tilting rigidity. We have implemented this successfully by profile grinding the ring raceways (four point contact ball bearings) in the shape of a gothic arch.
