BEARING HOT HR (PTFE)
A bearing is a machine element that constrains relative motion to only the desired motion, and reduces friction between moving parts. The design of the bearing may, for example, provide for free linear movement of the moving part or for free rotation around a fixed axis; or, it may prevent a motion by controlling the vectors of normal forces that bear on the moving parts. Most bearings facilitate the desired motion by minimizing friction. Bearings are classified broadly according to the type of operation, the motions allowed, or to the directions of the loads (forces) applied to the parts.
In high-temperature commercial cooking equipment, PTFE has multiple applications. Often used in seals, gaskets, valve and fitting components, pump parts, manifold, chemical resistant tubing and bearings and bushings PTFE is rated for it's very high temperature and chemical resistance. PTFE is also recognized by its brand name "Teflon" where it is used as a protective non-stick cooking surface embedded into the construction of pots and pans, and in replaceable indirect cooking release sheets for grills, especially those with clamshell design.
