Designed primarily for washdown environments, the DualVee washdown wheel from Bishop-Wisecarver is said to significantly extend bearing life. The wheel’s bearing incorporates a recently patented inner seal and outer shield design. The latter allows the bearing to act as a momentary seal, while pressure from high-velocity fluid causes the shield to deflect and conform to the wheel’s metallic surface. When the pressure is removed, the shield returns to its normal position, allowing any liquid and debris to drain or be spun out. The wheel is available in sizes 2 and 3 and features AISI 440C stainless steel construction. Washdown wheels are interchangeable with original DualVee wheels.
