Motion Industries in Saskatoon, Canada found Isomag bearing isolators to be the perfect solution for their rebuild on a Brook Hansen Gear Motor. This motor gearbox has been experiencing problems of egress of the ISO-220 lubrication from the bearing housing, eventually causing the gearbox to fail. The culprit of this Brook Hansen Gear Motor are the seals that are installed. These seals wear out in about 12-15 months on continuous use. Then the loss of lubrication from the bearing house starts.
Isomag bearing isolators are a positive seal that wont damage the shafts of your gearbox, and work in horizontal or vertical up or down positions for the right angle gearboxes. Isomag bearing isolators also work perfectly in grease lubrication environments. The Isomag bearing isolators were installed in September 2014 and are still running leak free today. Isomag bearing isolators have a guaranteed life of 5 years, and usually run for 10+.
