KMS Pillow Blocks are made from PBT, a glass-filled reinforced engineering polymer, and are completely interchangeable with conventional cast iron blocks. These maintenance free blocks have excellent mechanical strength, stiffness and dimensional stability, and never rust or corrode.
Where high standards of cleanliness are important, such as in the food industry, their smooth surfaces are much more hygienic than those of cast iron blocks where rough surfaces can harbor objectionable mold or bacteria.
NO PLATING OR COATING TO CHIP OR PEEL:
Coated or plated cast iron blocks can scratch, chip and peel. Just the installation of mounting the block can chip the mounting hole edge and begin the process of corrosion. KMS solid plastic mounted blocks will not chip or peel and will never rust.
USED IN MANY INDUSTRIES:
KMS blocks are used in a wide variety of industries including food processing, canning, bottling, pharmaceutical, chemical processing, marine and many general industrial applications.
Minimum temperature: -31°F; Maximum in Air: 180°F; Submerged in Water: 120°F
