Inpro/Seal introduces VBMag bearing isolator

Downers Grove, part of Dover Precision Components and Dover, has announced the launch of its new magnetic bearing isolator, VBMag, which utilizes magnetic force to create a liquid-tight seal and protect against lubrication loss and contamination ingress in challenging applications, such as flooded, high oil splash or oil mist environments.

"The VBMag Bearing Isolator combines decades of knowledge and engineering expertise to deliver a reliable, long-lasting, leak-free seal for a variety of challenging applications," said Chris Solfelt, Product Manager at Inpro/Seal. "The addition of VBMag expands Inpro/Seal's product portfolio, allowing us to better support our customers with the best bearing protection solution for any application."

With VBMag, there is zero shaft wear, making it the superior choice for applications that historically used elastomeric lip seals, which can wear quickly at the point of contact and damage the shaft. Engineered with rare Earth magnets and precision-manufactured components, the VBMag allows maximum lubrication to reach the faces, extending sealing life and reducing the need for unscheduled downtime and maintenance costs.

Bearing failure impacts equipment reliability across all industries and is a leading cause of equipment downtime and lost production. VBMag rounds out Inpro/Seal's bearing protection product line to offer customers a complete set of solutions.
