cordless compaction systemOur colleagues at Spyraflo in the US are playing a role in helping clean up cities the likes of Baltimore, Boston, Queens, NY and Ventura, CA. The ingenious self-clinching, self-aligning bearings are a part of the drive shaft and motor mechanism powering an exciting new cordless compaction system.

The manufacturer of the system has introduced a solar-powered, cordless design of their equipment which uses an energy-efficient chain drive system that allows the units to be deployed virtually anywhere, thereby reducing the frequency of collections and greatly reducing associated carbon dioxide and pollution emissions from truck traffic.

The decision was made to use the Spyraflo Teflon-Bronze 20mm diameter flange mount bearings that provide important benefits, including non-corrosive housings and a ± 5° static self-alignment capability. They needed to handle a punishing specification supporting a full mechanical load of the machine equalling over 550kilograms of force translated through the motor.

The customer selected the Spyraflo bearings due to their many unique benefits including reduced machining and assembly costs, low maintenance during their often-rugged usage, their ability to withstand hot, cold and wet weather and most importantly, their affordability. With each unit having a life expectancy of more than 10 years the choice of Spyraflo bearings was a clear accolade for their long-term reliability as well.

Micromech is the UK distributor for these clever bearings, if you would like more information about them or perhaps a sample, then contact Alan Spinks on 01376 333333 or e-mail
