Never a problem, always a … Challenge. Of course, with a company slogan like that, you know you are going to be working with a company that values innovation and drives for success. As New Zealand’s leading suppliers of packhouse and food processing solutions, we pride ourselves on being aligned with such well-known global brands as Challenge Power Transmission.
Challenge Power Transmission are a pioneer in their field, based in the United Kingdom, they were the very first foreign company to manufacture and export transmission products from mainland China. 40 years on from their inception, Challenge stands tall as an example of how to manufacture and distribute consistently high-quality products.
More specifically, EQM Industrial stock and utilise their bearing units and bearings.
Why do we choose Challenge products?
We ensure that all products we stock reach and exceed the strict guidelines required by our industry. As such, we source products that adhere to this as well. Challenge have made their bearing shields of steel as standard, and the optional AISI-300 stainless is available, when required. Furthermore, buna nitryl is the standard material used for the seals. With fluorocarbon, silicon, and teflon seals available for high temperature applications.
Their bearings are also rust resistant. Under normal operating conditions, the rust resisting period is six months. After this period, we strongly recommend that the product be checked, and rust protected again if necessary.
Not to be forgotten their bearing units have triple lipped seals with shields as standard. They are a sealed unit for longer life, and all come supplied with a grease nipple.
The units are also self-aligning and are fully interchangeable with other makes. Making it easy to upgrade your conveyor transmission.
Put simply, the interchangeable properties make Challenge products a great option for food processing, as well as a multitude of other industries. If your business is interested in finding out how our bearings and bearing units can be of use in your workplace contact our team at EQM today.
