Bearings for Traffic Signal Control Box

Traffic Signal Control Box Bearings

non corrosive traffic signal cabinet bearing

A plastic radial ball bearing is used in outdoor applications, such as traffic signal control boxes, because it can run without lubrication, and will not rust. It can operate in environments with challenges of humidity, rain, snow, and hot or cold climates without lubrication failures or corrosion.

Critical design features: Acetal POM plastic races fitted with 316 stainless balls. Bearing construction features True Race Technology™ ball grooves, and full complement bearing construction for optimum load capability.

Additional reasons for use:

  • Lower friction: A plastic race bearing will naturally have a lower coefficient of friction than a metal to metal ball bearing.
  • A KMS bearing is designed to tolerate suspended particles without clogging. This reduces required maintenance on your product.
  • A KMS plastic bearing can be designed with special shapes or profiles to better suit your application. It will provide ease of assembly and improved life and performance of your product.

Plastic Vs Steel

Cleanliness/Hygienic: Plastic bearings generally operate cleaner than metal bearings because they do not need lubrication, they are resistant to corrosion, and they can be washed down without the worry of re-lubing. This capability makes them a viable option for clean room environments, and wash down applications. A plastic bearing made from either PBT, PVDF or PEEK can be post sterilized by standard methods such as autoclave or Gamma.
