Kilian Custom Bearing Assemblies for Overhead Laundry Conveyor Systems
A leading laundry machinery manufacturer was looking for a quiet replacement
bearing assembly solution for its large laundry overhead conveyor systems used
by commercial laundries, casinos and uniform/garment suppliers. The system
transports heavy bags of incoming soiled laundry along with outgoing clean and
pressed laundry on hangers.
The conveyor system utilized steel bearing assemblies that rode along suspended
steel tubular tracks. The steel-on-steel design created extreme levels of noise
when the large, multi-level conveyor was operating.
Kilian worked closely with the OEM while reviewing the unique application
challenges. Ultimately, Kilian engineers developed a custom bearing assembly with
an integral shaft for easy installation onto the trolley bracket.
The assembly featured 6201 steel precision bearings over molded with sound
dampening black Nylon 66. The Nylon material significantly reduced noise levels as
the over molded bearings rode smoothly on the steel tracks.
