Condensation of Moisture Inside Idlers

Posted in: , on 23. Oct. 2002 - 10:20

We are manufacturers of Conveyor Idlers. We have been asked by one of our customers regarding the preventive action or design we have incorporated in opur idlers to prevent water condensation inside the idler from getting into the bearing of the idlers. The problem posed to us is that while the Idler is in operation the air will be sucked inside the barrel and becuase of the heat during operation it will stay in gaseous form itslef. But while the conveyor is switched off the temperature on the roller will come down and there is bound to be condensation of moisture inside the idler barrel. This mositure might enter into the bearing zoner of the idler during operation and failure might occur. Can any one please suggest some answer to this question? Thank you
