Applications in washdown environments typically require frequent bearing replacement due to the ingress of highly corrosive fluids and loss of lubrication. Bishop-Wisecarver’s DualVee washdown wheels are claimed to increase replacement intervals at least three-fold, and they are interchangeable with standard vee wheels. The design features an all-stainless-steel construction, FDA-approved grease, and an outer shield and inner seal for superior protection from liquids and debris. The outer shield acts as a momentary seal when subjected to a stream of high-velocity fluids, while the inner seal prevents liquid from entering the wheel and retains the internal lubrication grease.
